New here so I hope this is in the right place....
I went to my Primary Doctor Friday because I was extremely "Dizzy",nauseous, and I threw up. He kind of did the Epley Maneuver (only turning my head 45 degrees and making me lay down over a pillow, doing this for both sides) and determined it to be Vertigo (room spined out of control when he did my right ear) He told me to look up the Epley Maneuver (which he showed me on the computer) and do it, then wait 2 hours, then do it again, wait 2 hours, etc.
Anyways I did it once, not too bad. But the second time I did it the spinning went out of control and it freaked me out so bad I sat straight up, my heart going a million miles an hour (not really but you know what I mean). Now I'm afraid to do it again. is there anything else I can do? I want to get rid of this asap, hate feeling dizzy... is there another exercise I can do?? or should I just suck it up and get through it? My dizziness has been better today, but I haven't really laid flat down since yesterday (slept sitting up last night and slept so soundly
). Laying flat is the only time it happens.
Any suggestions, or even encouragement to try the Epley Maneuver again, would be most helpful and appreciated
