Is this vertigo? Strange feeling...

Hey all,
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 :/

Re: Is this vertigo? Strange feeling...


Just a question for you, have you had a diagnosis regarding what is causing your vertigo in the first place?

In general though, if your symptoms are different from what your current health care provider is aware of it's always good to check in again with them. Right now looking after yourself is top priority, sleep, not junk food, relaxation etc. Take time to look after yourself and check in with your doctor and you'll be doing fun things with your gf in no time.

So don't start freaking out now you hear - you are not alone because I've answered you and understand what it feels like. I've had my problem for six years now!!
