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.

    Vertigo & Pregnancy

    I am 37 weeks pregnant and for the past week I have been dealing with Vertigo. I am going to see an Ent doctor in a couple of days to get some understanding. Researching this diagnosis it is so many unanswered questions. I am a sufferer from migraines. Hoping it's just hormonal or it will pass but not sure.

    When does it end?

    i had a bad vertigo spell almost a month ago. I'm exhausted . There is still pressure in my head, ears and eyes.  I feel like I'm in a fog sometimes and can't construct sentences quickly and easily. I'm a 40 yr old male,  active - going to the gym at least 4 days a week and now I really don't have the energy or motivation to hardly do anything. It's depressing.

I have gone to an ENT and a neuro-otologist... have been told I have BPPV, Labryinthitis,...
  • 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...

    Hello everyone, I am new to this website as I just registered today. I thought it was important to share some information that I found on YouTube believe it or not from someone who experienced vertigo and is now cured. It's all about the possibility of being vitamin B12 deficient. That YouTube video will spell out everything you need to know. The fact that I saw my doctor this past Friday and...

    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...
