    Yep... you're not alone. I went for three weeks without it and thought I was done with that phase. Nope, it hit me like a ton of bricks two weeks ago, again! Argh. Yesterday I was good, today I have the lovely hormone headache that usually accompanies it and the kind of jelly like legs. Yea! eek

      You know, for years as a kid, you always heard the older women talk about "the change" and all you heard them emphasize was the heat flashes. But now that I am going through it, there are sooooooo many other symptoms that come with it that I never expected. Up until I found this website, I thought I had some terrible illness. The ladies here have answered so many questions and calmed a lot of my fears, thank God!

    Yes I had vertigo throughout my peri and ever since occasionally despite a hysterectomy.  My ears ring with tinnitus a bit too.  There are excercises you can do to help prevent this getting bad.  It involves a bit of shaking your head from side to side and other exercises relating to the position of your head.  I was scared to do it at first thinking it would make it worse but when I took the plunge it really helps.  You need to see someone who can help.  I was referred to ENT at my local hospital to make sure there was nothing wrong first.

    Yes!!!! It is the worst part for me. There are days I feel like the whole room is spinning. Sometimes mine is accompanied by a headache. Most times just the dizziness. I also get a weak feeling in my arms and legs @ times. Makes me feel very unsteady.  

    This forum has eased my mind more than anyone else I have talked to. All the ladies on here are so wonderful and so caring. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing. 

    Hugs to all!!

      Yes I agree. Before I stumbled upon this website I was a complete basket case. Now when I experience these symptoms I know that it's the peri and I don't worry like before.

    All of a sudden I sat up in bed one morning to get up and wow the room was spinning.  Ever since March I have been suffering.  I am spotting 1/2 day and know it has to be premenopausal symptom.  Vertigo so bad I throw up sometimes.  Morning sickness. It is scary cause I never had this before.  Thought a stroke was coming.  The heaviness then the spinning.  It's very scary but obviously I survived so guess it's not my time to go yet I say to myself.  smile

      Oh yes very scary. I didn't throw up but didn't think my eyes would stop moving along with the room! I actually find I get dizzy very quickly too earlier I was on the train and bend down whilst it was moving and when I stood up I felt woozie! Really frustrating x

    YES!! I was put on progesterone cream (all natural) for about 4 months after I had my 3rd child...I was 32. I felt better and took myself off of it and the next month I sat up from bed and had my first bout of vertigo. It's been on and off ever since. I had bloodwork that revealed I was still low in progesterone so I went back on the cream, it didn't really help too much with the vertigo so I started researching ways to boost my own vertigo or to cause ovulation, because I know without ovulating (which I was not doing) you do not produce progesterone. after researching ALOT I decided to try vitex also known as chasteberry. I was so scared to take it because I read just a few reviews that said it could cause depression. Well, one day i was feeling so bad i just prayed and took it. No side effects at all right away so I took it again the next day. Within 3 days my vertigo was completely GONE. I have no idea why. I have continued to take it now for about 7 months. I do feel like I have been a little depressed but not too bad. I canot come off of it because if i don't take it by 8 each night I start to get a migraine which is usually the precursor to the vertigo for me. I hope this helps someone. It's def worth a shot. Vertigo SUCKS.

    I generally use Di-Vertigo to get rid of it.
