Having a bad night

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi

I'm having dizzy night it started up the psychologist office and by the time I got to the chiropractor's office and stepped out of my car I could feel the floor bouncing. Came home and did my gays stabilization exercise and felt like I was sinking in the chair. Now I'm sitting here typing and I feel like a movie in the water.

I find it strange how with this disorder you can be fine and then Bam you're dizzy bouncing floating rocking whatever it is you're doing at that time. Anybody else have this be fine

    I have Vertigo BPPV and was released from hospital at 2 weeks ago but if I look down at the floor or up to the ceiling my dizziness comes back. I have not started any therapy yet but I hope I will soon. Very aggravating.

      In this help website, I note frequently the reference to "mal de EMbarquement" Syndrome.

      In my frequent talks with world recognized neurotologists, this syndrome never comes up in our conversations, nor as a possible diagnosis for anything.

      I therefore believe that any reference to this term should be limited.  Personally, I am not sure that this exists as a disorder.

      Hi

      This is quite interesting in regards to MDDS, there is plenty of documentation about it as there is about MAV, but I was talking with another doctor about MAV and was told its a garbage can syndrome, its another way of the doc saying they really don't know what the cause is.  

      I know with my dizziness which is a rocking sensation at times, and a bobbing at other times or a falling sensation, I usually have a headache with neck pain and upper shoulder pain on both sides of the body.  This can last for hours and into up to 3 days.  Also how the dizziness can change from one feeling to another at any time.  And the most prevalent symptom that comes with it is anxiety and panic.  

      I am also wondering about most people with MAV taking anti depressants for it, so that tells me its more of an depression or anxiety disorder that really going on.  Also most people with MDDS take anxeity meds for it,  such as valium, xanax, ativan.  

      I think if it was a real inner ear disorder they would be able to treat it better.  I know inner ear things are very complicated, but treating it with anit d's and anxiety meds, seems to say its more about anxiety and stress.
