Is Vertigo an unspecified disease, or does something change in the brain??

    Personally I think the brain changes - because the signals from your brain to your limbs seems interrupted to me.

    Hi Jacqueline...from what I understand vertigo/dizziness can be coming from the ear, lack of blood to the brain or from the brain itself sending out signals....

    Symptoms of vestibular disorders include dizziness, vertigo (a spinning sensation), imbalance, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), fatigue, jumping vision, nausea/vomiting, hearing loss, anxiety, and cognitive difficulties.

    Vestibular disorders are difficult to diagnose. It is common for a patient to consult 4 or more physicians over a period several years before receiving an accurate diagnosis.

    All of these have roots in scrambled messages from ear/balance centers to the brain.  The brain can compensate for some.

      Is it possible that it will leave, as fast as it came ?

      My G.P seems totally unconcerned and can't decide if it is Vertigo

      or Meniere's  gave me a med that made my lips swell.. so I stopped

      taking them

      Hi Jacqueline, Id like to know this too as ive had three episodes now in total , the last two being only 24hrs. apart. 1st one was about year and half ago without any warning i came over feeling dizzy and threw up all over our just been laid new bedroom carpet.  Was given these tablets about three weeks ago but scared to take them as the side affects are horrendous one of them being swelling of the lips like you say.and of all things dizziness! lol  Ive had no tests done, it feels like its my head thats the problem and with the last attack was very sick and the room was spinning two evenings ago Dare i mention hear what they are called as most probably admin wont allow my message to go through. They are Prochlorperazine maleate 5mg. You did right to stop taking yours, not good at all swollen lips.

    Hi Jacqueline,

    I find this forum very helpful hearing experiances of other people with Vestibular Neuritis. At times I feel that I am going crazy because I feel so unwell with diziness, a trembling pressure in my head and nausea. No doctor really can help but they all assure me that all patients eventually do get better with time. After nearly two years of suffering from this my anxiety is getting worse. I have psychosomatic pains and Irritated bowl syndrom (my medical tests all show that I am healthy) and at times I struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am a little hopful that most people that participate in this forum have had the symptomps for less than two to three years suggesting that in does eventually get better for a majority of people. It would be great to hear a few more positive stories from patients that have recovered. The VRT exercises do help I find. I started to drink more water, especially when I feel very bad and it helps. Fennel tea helps me with digestion and nausea. Being positive helps (but that is very difficult) as I feel the VN activates anxiety and more anxiety activates the dizziness. I think in your case it is of great importance to find a doctor that you trust and that he understands your symptoms.
