I've suffered from vertigo off and on. It always seems to hit during the winter, never any other time of the year. Last week we had temps in the 10 degree mark, then on Friday, they jumped to 50 degrees! I was walking into the grocery store, and suddenly it hit. It's a strange feeling that I have a hard time summing up in words. When im walking, or turning my head, or when someone touches me, it feels like my nerves react as if the touch/head movement is delayed by a split second. I can talk and think ok when this happens. It's like the feeling you get when you are about to fall asleep...a sort of disconnected feeling. This lasts for .5 seconds, and happens in episodes until I sit down.
So far I have not gotten any of my usual vertigo symptoms: Feeling like I''m being pushed in the back of the head, spinning at night ,etc. Just the weird split second rush of non-feeling. It is EXTREMELY uncomfortable, especially when walking around, because I have to stop and it feels like my limbs are not my own!
I haven't been able to go into a department store for a week or do anything fun with my gf. I'm really freaking out! Any insight on what this is, or anyone who has a similar feeling. I hate being alone in this :/
