I had a sudden disturbing extreme dizzy/spinning spell - woke with it and could not lift head off pillow or stand - was extremely nauseous. Went to ER in ambulance. Was unable to walk properly - etc. 5 or so hours later it was improving after sleeping for 3 hours, however, a week later I still have it - dizzy if i lean forward, move my head, lie down etc. Also some nausea too and other symptoms I also am not myself, tired, lack ability to focus as before and work as well etc. I am now looking for a doc/someone in the bay area - but will travel anywhere -to get the Epley Maneuver done. Do you know a good doctor who has a strong success rate with treating this? I was diagnosed only upon my symptoms in the ER and have not had any testing. I am 52. I did have a tennis ball accidentally thrown at my jaw, and it hurt a few days before. I also have pretty bad TMJ - not treated - and wonder if either of these conditions could have caused the BPPV if this is what I have. So looking for docs who treat - look at both the TMJ and BPPV and who do the necessary testing - thanks! REally cannot function like this and need to get back to work, and take care of kids too.
