Hi all I am new to the "dizzy" forum so hope some of you can help with my problem. I have had vertigo for many years and have been told this has been caused by inner ear crystals permanently lodging themselves and could not be moved by the usual manouvours, only surgery, which I will not do as high risk of going deaf, so I have been sleeping on my right side for over 3 years, cannot turn to my left or go straight back without spinning. But just a couple of days ago I had a horrible experience. I woke up a little dizzy as usual the my head settles down, then all good, drove to work started doing usual tasks (I work in a cafe) then out of the blue the room started spinning and luckily I had a bench to hold on to otherwise I would have landed on the ground. This only lasted a few seconds. Felt nauseus and upset stomach. After bathroom I felt better, no more spinning the rest of the day but felt head was full of cotton, very tired and uneasy. Next day I was fine, today again feel very unbalanced and heavy headed. My question is does anyone feel like this? any suggestions on what I can do or who I should see? I am so sick of this dizzyness. PS: Stemitil and Serc do nothing but make me sleepy. Had MRI 8 months ago for migraine was all clear. Thank you I am 61 years old.
