No matter how it's labeled, vertigo is horrible. It shuts down life. There is not a definite pattern. For me several things have happened in my past that may be to blame. Have any of you suffered from motion sickness since childhood? Have any of you been scuba diving? Have any of you had a concussion? If you go to the beach then go home can you hear the waves for about a week? Do you get dizzy if your head quickly goes back?
This last vertigo episode has been one of the worse. Let me say I habitually awaken each of my mornings focusing on an opposite wall as I swing my legs off the bed. I experience tinnitus on a daily basis, before a vertigo episode it gets louder. This is an alarm to make sure I am drinking enough water, staying healthy ....
This last vertigo episode lasted 4 days. I had a few mornings of late of waking up with vertigo but after taking a motion sickness pill then sleeping for three hours all symptoms went away. But the next morning the same thing happened. Then several weeks went by and no vertigo!!
then one day, about 4 days before the last vertigo episode, I was bending over picking up some things and got very light headed and had to sit down.

Find someone who will watch u-tube video and take the situation seriously.
unfortunately the tinnitus is still loud and present
Now I want to know how to:
(1) make the vertigo stay away for good.
(2) make the tinnitus go away for good
I'd be most interested in hearing your thoughts on how to eliminate tinnitus and vertigo

Hello, I've been on many antidepressants for the last twenty years. My new psychiatrist looked at my gene test and said I lack a gene to transmit serotonin. She wants me to start on a low level of lithium, eventually add some lamictal. I'm very scared about this, because lithium sounds dangerous to me. I've just had all of these recurring thoughts about death for years, was diagnosed with...
