    BPPV on a cruise ship

    I had a bppv (vertigo) episode a month ago on a cruise ship. This is the 4th time in my life I've had one so I'm aware of what it is. Scared the heck out of me, but I knew the maneauvers to do to get the crystals to fall back into place. Was down and out for a day. A few days later, got off cruise ship and for the past 3 weeks have dealt with what appears to be MDDS. Light headed, spatial and...

    A newbie

    Hi. I'm Lee. I'm a 49 yo male and what started as bacterial sinusitis and pneumonia has now gone into vertigo, migraines, and cognitive memory loss. June 9 I was coughing. Now, I'm in a mess. I started seeing a chiropractor. My neurologist gave me pills and referred me to an ENT specialist. How many of you use a walking stick to move around? I'm wanting to be more independent. Thanks.
