Dizziness / Vertigo board


I had severe vestibular neuritis in the 80's. I stole my life for 2 1/2 years. I was so dizzy I was bedridden and couldn't watch TV or the Clouds move in the sky. I really thought I would not live through it. It came after a flu/bug.

One of the things I learned about Vertigo is to go with it.........normally we try to do anything to stop it but what I learned was to move my head and try and bring on the worse attack possible.............then it would get better and pass.

I know this sounds crazy........but it really did help. Most of my anxiety came from fighting it.....trying to lie still, yada yada...........but when I flung my head down and around SITTING DOWN OF COURSE or in the bed, it would come on really bad, but then would end sooner. I can still feel it and the nauseau.............NOTHING WORSE and I've had some bad mamajamma stuff.

I also took meclizine.............and VALIUM worked better than anything ever, for it STILLS the vestibular nerve that makes you dizzy in the first place.

Hope this helps a little..............I feel DIZZY just talking about it. Oh how awful that stuff is.

PLEASE FEEL BETTER...........:angel:
