Dizziness & Vertigo Support Group

Dizziness is the sensation of instability. Vertigo refers to dizziness with a sensation of motion. 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. If you are a frequent sufferer of dizziness or vertigo, join the group and find support.

From time to time my ears hurt me but the pain doesn’t last much. I have gone to doctors, Ent’s which mentioned i have labyrinthitis. I have to take pain killers to kill the pain. It has really conditioned my life and...

    Hi everyone

    I am brand new to this site and praying I can get some input on what is going on. I get attacks of dizziness and have fainted on numerous occasions. The other night I fainted 3 times before I could make it to my bed and after that I had to hold onto the walls to get around the house. It's horrible and it's been going on for years. Another group told me to look up POTS> I did and I had all the...

    Chronic dizziness on our podcast

    0
    Hi there, I hope it's appropriate for me to post such a thing (and if it's not, let me know), but I work with a non-profit podcast about various personal and social issues ("The Humanist Experience"). One of the hosts is a sufferer of a chronic dizziness disorder, unilateral vestibular hypofunction. She recently opened up in some detail about her condition in our last episode, and wanted me to...

    Hello, I cannot see certain patterns without my vision going nuts! Well...I've had three major vertigo attacks since my first in July of this year.  Like many, I was rushed to the ER, had tons of tests done and they found 0. As many of you know, vertigo attacks can be extremely scary, and now I can to add aura-visual migraines to the list.  Three days ago I suffered from my first visual...
  • What I once had back in 2007, diagnosed as an inner ear infection, prescribed meclizine, went away and only came back once or twice a year since then.  Starting around the holiday season 2016 it came back with a vengeance.  Weather here in Louisiana has been really strange, no winter at all, had me wondering if that had anything to do with it.  I feel for everyone posting.  It wakes me up...

    Vertigo is the worst

    Hi! I'm new here. I didn't know there was an online support group for this which is amazing because no one I know suffers from vertigo. They cannot understand or relate what I'm going through. I've suffered from it for 3 almost 4 years now. It's paralyzing. It's almost one am now and I can't sleep because I don't know how to sleep when everything feels like it's spinning. I feel like I'm drowning...

    Xanax works for me

    0
    Hi Fellow Sufferers, I have had vertigo symptoms for 7 years now. Jumped through all the neurology hoops and finally found 1 mg. of Xanax works for me within 15 minutes. My symptoms start with dizziness, imbalance, double vision, rotational vertigo, then 10-12 hours of sleep after taking the Xanax. Sometimes .5 mg will get me through the day.I read something interesting recently, vertigo is not...

I have an extremely difficult time doing anything that requires being still and want to always be in motion. I also have a constant MAJOR heavy headed feeling, a sensitive scalp that starts burning when I brush my hair, and frequent...
