Hi everyone.. I woke up a week ago, sat up in bed, and the whole room started spinning. One week later I have been to the GP who thinks it's Vertigo (Benign Positional), and put me on a med called Sirc. I also went yesterday to a physiotherapist who specializes in dizziness. He did some tests to confirm that he also thinks it's positional vertigo, and then performed the Epley Maneuver. Since this procedure yesterday I have progressively gotten WORSE!!! Used to be that I was mostly just dizzy if I moved my head into specific positions or stood up or lay down. I now can't even walk to the bathroom without feeling unstable and like I might fall over.I called the physio and they said it's not uncommon for someone to feel worse after the Epley before they feel better. But in all the reading I am doing everyone talks about it going away pretty much right away. Can anyone shed any light on this for me? I am SOOO frustrated at being so incapacitated.
