Question for those who have vertigo attacks

Posted , 4 users are following.

When you sit up, does everything spin 10x worse?

I'm having one as we speak. I woke up w my left ear feeling extremely clogged and I was anxious.

It has turned into a vertigo attack. It's not so bad if I sit straight up but once I lay down or lay down then sit up, everything won't stop spinning.

Plz tell me I'm not alone??

    Good Morning

    Back in Nov. Of last year I started having the same symptoms which got so bad that it went into panic attacks and several trips to the emergency room because I thought I was having a heart attack. My GP sent me to an ENT we're I was diagnosed with Labyrinthitis And Ringing in my right ear which is a problem with my inner ears.

    I don't take the medication unless I really need to because I have learned how to identify the symptoms before they get worse.

    One thing that helps me with the symptoms is putting an ice pack on my neck, somehow it calms things down.

    Get an appointment with your GP right away.

    Don t get discouraged you will feel good again.

    Hope You feel better. ????

      Thank you! When I had my caloric test a few weeks ago and panicked, the doctor told me to put a cold rag on my neck. He said it helps immensely. Seems to be true!

      I see a neurotologist tomorrow. I'm just not used to these vertigo attacks as it's new symptoms.

      They have medication for the dizziness and it really helps.

      Yes try the ice packs before you get up and get up slowly after you feel a little. TRUST Me I Know all the symptoms Are Scary But you will be okay and feeling better. This website has helped a great deal because it helps me A Great Deal.

      God Bless You And I hope Your appointment goes very well. 🌻🌻
