Just released form hospital

Hi ladies! I spent two nights in the hospital due to falling down dizziness and heavy heart palps. They say it's vertigo. I do have a head cold started. ANyone else had the vertigo? Any drug help?
I am on over the counter anti dizzy ( can't think of the name) it helps a little.
That's why I haven't been on here complaining of all of my fibro symptoms as usual.

Sorry to hear you're in a spin from the vertigo. Nasty. Did they test your sodium level? -- either extreme can contribute to vertigo. With the heart palps & all ... I hope they did thorough thyroid & adrenal testing.

Best wishes.

Hi Deena,

I just had my first bout with vertigo on June 30th. I have never had anything hit so fast, or so hard. Friend I was with said to go lay down... OMG thought that the world couldn't spin any faster till my head hit the pillow. Boy did I get up FAST. Spent 2 1/2 hrs in E.R and I am on Meclizine (first drug to take with onset) If that dosen't do it in a half hr, I have to take 1 mg of Lorazepam. Yup a tranquillizer. I told the Dr. I wasn't nervous, just dizzy, and he said it's actually the BEST treatment for vertigo, but they like to use Meclizine as first choice.

Hope you feel better, and it never visits you again.(me either)
