Vertigo is more likely than other types of dizziness to be associated with nausea, vomiting, or double vision, to occur even when lying down, and to feel better with the eyes closed.

  • Hi everyone: I had my first vertigo episode in December 2014 and I ended up in the ER. It quickly went away and I didn't have any more issues until a year later, December 2015. I had an MRI in January and it was normal. I saw an ENT several times and it was determined that my vertigo was not "benign" so I wasn't eligible for the "Epley Manuever" I have had several more episodes of vertigo, the...

    Thyroid and dizziness

    I have to wonder how much my vertigo/dizziness is related to my hypothyroid/hashimoto's and adrenal issues. Recently it has been discovered that I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and my T3 thyroid hormone has been doubled. Ever so slowly this seems to be helping this dizziness I have had for over 2 years. Vertigo is by far my hardest symptom to deal with. I have been taking a Zyrtec daily to help...

"I feel super depressed and isolated.My doc said when she sees people...
  • Hello, I was rushed to the ER friday and found out I had vertigo. THe doc said it could be an underlying virus as well. Of course I was told to follow up with my medical provider, which I don't have one. My long-term provider passed away and the quality of care from the others I've seen have been subpar. I've been healthy for the past six years, with the exception to a few trips to the urgent...

I want to support my friend but I live far away. I would like to send a care package of some kind but do not...
