Just checking to see if anyone else has this or has had this unpleasant feeling. For the last couple of weeks, all of a sudden a get a quick spin. It's kinda like its going to go into a "true vertigo", but then stops. Its happening a few times during the day, but will also happen in bed. I've had the "shifting" alot, but this is different. Any takers?
I also get the quick spins, which are pretty unnerving because I wait for it to get worse. I had this recently at work, and it FREAKED-ME-OUT. I wanted to just go home, but I opted to stick it out, which ended up okay even though my day was "off" and I was anxious the rest of the afternoon because of it.
Usually with a quick spin I will get a headache that comes on super-quick. Not a bad one, but enough that I combat this by taking aspirin and Benedryl (always ask your doctor before taking any meds, of course!).
I just finished reading your old post. It was full of info. Very helpful. And it answered my question if MAV can cause something else. Which it can. I'm wondering if the spins are now something else? How would you know?
When I hear you say that you feel yuck at work it makes me count my blessings. I do not know how you do it. There is no way I could hold a job. I admire people who are able to.
I know tomarrow will be a better day. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Even as the visual stuff and unsteadiness recede, those spins are a real bugger, they're almost always related or in combination with the rest of the junk, but they seem to be the most persistent, and scary of them all.
In my case they can even start suddenly and spontaneously, even with no apparent motion triggers. On a bad day, where I'm off all the time, this spins come in bunches during the course of the day.
Recently I've been quite better, and now they came in like attacks, one after a long 8 ride on the freeway, then I got some sleep and it receded.
I've read that some times this are treated with anti-migraine medication, but even talking with my doctors about it, I've never pinpoint their cause and effect. Obviously when they caught me up in the blue, specially on the street or in public places, they can be scary as they, as you all mentioned, feel like the beginning of some strong/serious attack, even as most of the time(fingers crossed), they just stop there in the little scare.
I noticed I had about three of those on the same day a couple of weeks ago when we were having that three day massive rain storm. They're awful! And like someone else posted, I got a headache after each one of them.
