Vertigo

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever suffer from it? I got hit with it on Monday,  and it's been off and on since, until this morning when I completely fell on the way to the bathroom. Obviously, I'm staying home from  work today, and I'll be going to the doctor's later.

Get it checked, it's usually nothing serious but you want to rule out potential neurological issues.

I sometimes get a mild dizzy spell if I haven't eaten for too long and my blood sugar levels go down.

Wife will be taking me later today. I eat well so I doubt it's sugar related, but since I'm going on 3 days of it coming and going, I don't feel great about it.

All the time. When I'm sitting or laying down and I get up too quick, I get light headed, blured vision, and dizzy for a few seconds. Doctors claim it is because the blood flow in my body is going to my legs and it takes a few seconds for my body to adjust.

My dad had it about 16 years ago. Was quite severe and had one bout which ended up with him losing his hearing in one ear. Was sudden though at the time. Definitely go and get it checked out before it gets too serious.

Go talk to an ENT about it they are the people that sort it out, unless you develop a vestibular disorder like me.

UDPATE:

Feeling much better today, and I have an appointment later with an ENT, but not sure if I'll go since I'm feeling better.

You should definitely go. Why take the chance?

Had a week off work with it last year. Caused by an inner ear infection after a virus that I'd had about two weeks previously according to the GP. Couldn't drive or anything, was horrible.

Last year I sliced my finger open to the bone with a serrated knife. Went to the local small hospital cas ward and the doctor sutured it, and wrote me up a ticketfor the finger specialist in Sydney. 8 am appointment. 6 am train up from Wollongong. On a public holiday. I didn't wanna go. My paramedic friend said I should, and my doctor friend said I should, but I can't be told.

 

I said fuck that and didn't go. My finger tingles from time to time and has very little sensation above the cut. The nerve wasn't completely shot, but it's not great either.

 

Make mediocre decisions, get mediocre results.

Usually after long flying it hits me. My balance goes hay wire

I will live!

I have BVVP, which is most likely due to a fall I had in a tennis match last Saturday. Easy fix that was done with some exercises, and now I'm not supposed to move my head much at all for the next 2 days.

You definitely did the right thing to go and get it checked out.

Can't be taking any risks with head injuries, glad everything is reasonably okay.
