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.

    Vertigo

    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...
  • 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...
  • Hi thereAfter 2 or 3 bouts of vertigo over the last 6 months and every expensive test under the sun, I finally got a diagnosis today. I have a million questions and also just want some support. The doc gave me a grand total of 15 minutes of her time.... "Okay, so you have this, you always will, and you might go deaf. byeee! "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'm writing for a friend who has had consistent spells of dizziness. This is new health condition for her. It's extremely upsetting as she goes through test after test trying to figure out the cause. I do not know if she has vertigo but I thought this may be a good place to ask advice. 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...
  • HiI'm new here and need to talk to others with this type of dizziness. I've have this for 9 months, I've been checked by my gp, a neurologist who says it subjective dizziness, my thyroid doc and my tsh levels are off but working on fixing them, now my ent says I have vestibular dysfunction, and I stared VRT therapy about 2 weeks ago. I have no idea where this came from, just appeared one night. ...

    I understand that the Epley maneuver is the way to go to align the crystals. Has anyone had success with this? Do you go to an ENT or a Chiropractor?
  • I have been diagnosed with Chronic Subjective Dizziness and Vestibular Migraine. My dizziness started very abruptly when I stepped off of a plane in San Fransisco on January 16 and felt like I was on the set of Jumangi! The floor was moving and wavy beneath my feet! Thank heavens I had my husband and 2 of our employees travelling with me! I don't know if I would have been able to manuever...
