More than 6 months ago I was getting some osteopath help for neck problems I have muscular pain with. He gave my neck a good crack which after a couple of days of pain worsening I turned over in bed early one morning and had a massive vertigo episode. Full on room spinning if I turned my head either direction. This left me exhausted and wobbley for around 3 weeks then it suddenly disappeared. I started getting physio in my a few weeks after ( no crunching) just massage, helped hugely. Past few weeks and no physio for a while my neck has been deteriorating, and I noticed I was feeling a little wobbley and really tired. I lay down in avo to have a snooze and turned my head rather quickly which triggered a vertigo attack, first on right side, then left, then both. This was different than the circular spinning of last time, it wasn't as violent, but I felt more nauseous than before . When I tried to focus on something my eyes were being pulled to the side in a horizontal way that I couldn't control. Today I managed to make myself turnover on to each side and waited until the vertigo stopped. It hasn't come back, although I'm feeling whacked out, and have neck pain with headache. I also suffer TMJ
After the first episode I saw an ent who did the hall pike manouver which was negative.
I'm worried not knowing 100% what's causing this. Sorry for the long essay, just hoping someone has had similar 😳
