So over for the past 12 months I’ve been having vertigo. Not dizziness... full blown vertigo But today I’ve had at least 12 episodes
Nausea Balance totally gone at the time of vertigo Lasts 30 seconds to couple of minutes at a time And nystagmus... I’m sure at one point my eyes did the crazy loopy loop With a mild frontal headache 🤢🤢🤢
Sakram, do you have anything to take for the vertigo? I take 2mg of Valium at the onset of my vertigo. My vertigo can come on suddenly just turning my head, or getting in or out of bed, but when it does the whole freaking room spins and I have to freeze in place. It typically last 3-4 hours to as long as a week (any slight movement makes everything spin around and makes me nauseated). The sooner I can take a Valium the shorter my vertigo lingers. I never get headaches with mine though sometimes a migraine triggers my vertigo.
I also have other dizziness/imbalance issues; vestibular neuronitis of the 8th cranial nerve (causes dizzy imbalance while walking, and POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (bending over or going from laying to sitting/sitting to standing, my blood pressure drops and my heart rate increases while causing lightheaded dizziness that makes me feel faint and sometimes feels like I'm whirling).
Are you sure you are having vertigo and it's not something else? The headache & eye issues sound concerning, but we are all different for sure. If you have anything to take that will stop your vertigo symptoms try taking it. Have you tried just lying still for a few hours and then slowly move to get up? If you don't feel better soon you might want to give your doctor a call. Hugs love & prayers this goes away soon! 🙂❤🙏🌼
I had postural hypotension when I was younger.. but this is different. The moment I sit up.. stand ..lie down...the whole room spins ... and my eyes go crazy.
Balance goes off completely.. almost fallen a few times. And the nausea... yikes... so horrible
Had it three times over the past year but since yesterday it’s been happening all the time. I’ve got nothing for it yet. So far I’ve diagnosed myself with inflammation of the inner ear... BPPV or a brain tumour 🤢 Shall see a doctor Monday
I have the same issue except I’m having trouble staying awake and being alert As well my doc is ordering me a tilt table test and everything you discribe is everything that happens she is confident that it’s pots but yours could be different. Sending love and prayers your way🙏❤️
Oh sakram, I wish there was some natural otc meds you could take. I've never had dizziness as long as you're having it, and I'm sure the spinning is contributing to the nausea. Have you asked your doctor for meclizine or Valium, at low doses, to help until you see them? It might help get the dizziness under control so you can walk into the docs office easier. Praying you are wrong about a tumor, and that they diagnosed you & get relief quickly!
Don’t have a new weird symptom. I had anew symptom tonight. I’ve previously had muscle spasms of my legs, lower/upper/ between. But tonight had muscle spasms in my left fingers/hand. 😮 my fingers looked knarly! Twisted. Quickly wrapped my hand in a wet hot towel to relax the muscles. Has anyone else had that happen? I have issues with my cervical discs c-3-4. Could this be coming from my neck?
