Re: Dizziness when lying on left side

I used to have this problem, atleast I think its the same. Is it like the bed spins when your drunk. LOL No I dont drink much.
I started getting this at night while lying on my left side, I found out I have Ménière's disease. I copied this for you, maybe it will help.

Ménière's disease is a disorder of the inner ear that affects hearing and balance. It causes sudden attacks of vertigo (a spinning sensation), tinnitus (a loud ringing in the ears), and a loss of hearing that may become permanent.

If this is what you have there are things you can do to help, doesnt mean it will but atleast try. I would go talk to your doctor though.

Hope this helps.....
