Johan is an extroverted, loving , family guy. When Johan turned 33 years old his world was turned upside down. Before his illness, Johan felt like he was on top of the world. He had a successful career, had just bought a house, and was planning a wedding with the love of his life. Then, on April 18th, 2019, he woke up and the world was spinning. His symptoms included head pressure, ear fullness, neck pain, dizziness, loss of balance, and visual disturbances such as light sensitivity and inability to focus. After many doctor appointments with specialists, and numerous tests, he received a diagnosis of Vestibular Migraine and Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD. Now, almost two years later, Johan is learning to thrive and live his life, thanks to some much needed adjustments, such as diet changes, exercise, vestibular rehabilitation therapy, supplements and medication. Johan started a YouTube channel (“Find your Chappiness”) and hosts a show called Vestibular TALKS, which has over 50 episodes with a variety of guests who have been kind and brave enough to open up and share their journeys, raise awareness, and inspire others living with chronic illnesses. Johan is a VeDA ambassador and he hopes to continue raising awareness and provide a positive outlet for others to share their journeys and connect with our wonderful community of Vestibular Warriors.
