Vertigo ... help I don't know what to do

I really hope someone can help me please. I have had vertigo for many years and I just can't take it anymore! The past 4 years have been a torture for me and for the past 3 weeks I have been in bed with the a massive vertigo crisis. When this happens I get a steroid shot and take a steroid pak, but this time it only eased up like 2 days and it's back! Can someone please tell me what you do in a crisis? I have my wedding September 19 and will have to postpone it if I don't get the vertigo to stop it at least ease up so I can function.

Re: Vertigo ... help I don't know what to do

I can tell you what I did but the cause of my vertigo might be different than yours. Mine was caused by low blood pressure. My blood pressure is 100/50, which is healthy as long as I don't do anything to make it go lower. For example, if I were to take an aspirin and then go to sleep, I'd wake up dizzy. Also, garlic can lower blood pressure: I once had a little bit of raw garlic before going to sleep and I woke up dizzy. And dehydration can make it much worse so I always try to stay properly hydrated. Now that I know what causes it, I have had it under control for many many years.

But I don't know if your dizziness is being caused by low blood pressure. Yours may be caused by something else.

Look up the nearest Neurotologist and make an appointment. Without knowing the cause there is no way you can treat it properly and a Neurologist is the most qualified to make a diagnosis. Good luck.

Re: Vertigo ... help I don't know what to do

I suffered for almost two years with vertigo also. your cause might be different than mine but my case was actually caused by a cavity on #2 tooth. there is not a lot of information out there about this but as soon as the tooth was taken cared of all of my symptoms including the extreme vertigo that I was experiencing and would keep me in bed for weeks at a time went away. Good luck, hopefully your case is something this easy to fix.
