Since I was around 20 I started with dizzy spells, they would come and go but not bother me much , I'd mainly notice the sensation when i was on an escalator , or if i was high up. I'd only get them once every few month. But I'm now 29 and have been suffering badly for 7 months of constant attacks is what i can describe them as. I can be fast asleep and in the middle of the night will wake feeling like the rooms spinning , i have to sit up and sometimes go to the bathroom as i start trying to be sick but never are. I feel as though my body is being pulled to the floor while my head feels like it's under water , is the best way i can describe it. I get very disorienated while the attack happens which lasts around 20 mins but then left with side effects from that such as ear ache , severe tiredness and not able to cope with motion I can get over 6 of these attacks in a day for either just 1 day or for more than 7 consecutive days. It doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing , i can be asleep , sat on the sofa watching tv , or out and about. I'm a single parent with 2 children so the fact this keeps happening is making it hard, I have been to the doctors and I'm waiting for an appointment with the ENT but they keep messing up my appointments and I keep having to wait. I just wondered if there's anyone else who has these symptoms that could give any advice , it would be greatly appreciated. I also grew up with my dad being in a band and he'd practice at home and it would be very loud. I don't know if that has anything to do with it?
