I wrote my first post not too long ago with the whole story of my vertigo but I have to know if other people have more difficult at night lying down in bed trying to sleep?
I have so many sleepless nights due to this and cannot function for the days after I do not get sleep.
Even though I have "vestibular neuritis" (supposedly), my symptoms intensify significantly when lying down in bed. My otoneurologist said this could be possible lack of compensation in this position, but I really don't know about this anymore.
BPPV tests have been negative.
When I asked for my records, it said "atypical positional dizziness" though the neurologist never used this term to me.
Does anyone have any insight?
Up until now I had been taking Zyrtec with really good results and was almost convinced the allergies were the cause but I have just had another sleepless night with horrible vertigo symptoms. I do not do complete spins often but feel like I'm on a boat with VERY rough waters instead of just that mild boat feeling if that makes any sense at all.
My symptoms intensify the longer I am lying on that particular side. I know that BPPV is usually a horrible episode but only lasts 30 seconds or less and is immediately when you roll to that side. Mine builds up over time.
Someone please give me any ideas. Do you think the allergy thing is worth looking into? Sinuses? Something cardiovascular related?
I have thought about going pale to try to reduce inflammation if not at the very least reduce my chances of getting further nerve damage.
I don't know what to do. I am starting to become very depressed about this.
Thank you in advance.
