    wouldn't hurt to get it checked out. Maybe migraine? Are you getting a spinning sensation or just dizzy?

      peter, mecclizine isnt going to make this go away. we all have been given this when we first get vertigo. it just helps with the dizziness. it wont cure it. you need to find the root of the problem. most likely they will first tell you BPPV- then something like vestibular nueritis. a walk in center, an ER, is just going to stabalize you and kick you out. you need a specialist. an otolaryngologist. look up dizzy clinic in a major city near you. you need testing, caloric testing. MRI- just to rule out the most serious. but just dont sit and wait for mecclizine to fix you. can you do vestibular PT- this was very helpful for me. the supermarket is a huge clue of vestibular issue. we all have trouble at first in the grocery store. dont waste time here. try to pay attention when you are foggy and dizzy, do you have a headache, one sided under eye. any numbness in hand, eye drooping. its hard to keep track of symptoms when you are foggy, but this is what made me realize i had vestibular migraines, not BPPV or VN
