Here it is Wednesday morning, I have been up for a while, but find myself constantly dizzy.  This feeling is troublesome at times, and other times leads me back to bed.  I have had audiology tests done, neurology tests done, balance tests done and of course, nothing significant shows up.  Meniere’s Disease (a chronic condition of the inner ear which affects balance) has been discussed with me, but there is no magic drug to treat it.  

Do you find yourself with a feeling of vertigo?  You could be sitting still and the room feels like it is spinning, or just a feeling of dizziness and uneasiness that can make you sick to your stomach.  This feeling can sometimes be the first symptom of a migraine coming on or possibly a change in barometric pressure or even stress.  There is a possibility of rain today in our area, and that could be my problem.

I would love to hear some of your thoughts and if you deal with any of this.

XO

    • Yes Mary, I deal with this also. I have dealt with this for a few years now. It come and It goes. I just recently went to see a Neurologist about this and he said I have minor vertigo which has to do with my Inner ear canal. He said some people get It really bad all the time and some get It every few years like me. I feel sorry for those who get this all the time, cause I hate the feeling of the room spinning and I get dizzy and then nauseous. It’s not a good feeling at all. The Neurologist set me up with an MRI that I had done last week and I am still waiting on my results.

      But I know how your feeling Mary. When It happens to me all I want to do Is go lay down and not move for the fear of getting dizzy again. After my results, I have to go back to the Neuro so he could show me some exercises to do to prevent me from getting dizzy. Maybe your doctor can show you some exercises also?

      Frannie, I can feel for you too..this is a terrible feeling to live with and although I was told there are some medications that can help with symptoms, it is something a person lives with...thank you for the suggestion of exercises..I will ask about that and look up some info about it too...mine is similar to yours, although when the pressure changes in the air, it is much worse for me..let me know how your results turn out!heart

    • For me, I feel an ear ache coming on usually and then a couple days later, the room starts spinning and I get dizzy and nauseaus. Not sure If It has anything to do with certain weather for me, but I do take certain medications, one Is for when I get nauseaus and the other Is Meclizine for dizziness. I also get the patches when I have an episode to help me not have any more at least for awhile, It doesn’t totally go away, just takes It away for awhile. I hope your doctor can help you with the exercises.

    • Changes in barometric pressure definitely affect my head.  Don’t know if it’s my sinuses or what, but a sudden change can give me a very unpleasant dizzy spell.  Dizzy may not be the right word, more of a floating head feeling, but unpleasant all the same.

    • I have vertigo also from time to time and for some reason with moist weather it can flare up at times.
      When i was being treated for my vertigo in the beginning i was sent to a physical therapist who showed me some very useful techniques to conquer the vertigo and keep it in check.

      If you google exercises to improve vertigo symptoms you will see some ideas of what you can do.  Now they may seem strange but they actually DO work with daily exercises just be patient and the rewards will pay off.

      Good Luck!
