Suffered with tinnitus for 20 years or more. I learned to live around it as a major nuisance in my life but never had it control me. At the same time, I gradually lost a large percent of my hearing in my left ear. Didn't really realize it until the ear started feeling plugged. I also suffer with Fibromyalgia, which again, I learned to live around since 1987 and didn't have it dictate who I was.
Recently, the hearing in my left ear would come and go and slight dizziness would also enter the picture. Again, visiting a variety of ENT's they all pretty much didn't bring much to the table. What really has caught my attention was last night after going to bed, I woke up with such a dizzy feeling, I couldn't get myself out of bed. All I could do was sit at the edge of the bed and vomit in a pail. This went on for about 30 minutes or more. I couldn't move my head an inch or I would feel so sick with the room upside down. After about 90 minutes I was able to lay down with the help of four pillows and fall asleep. I woke up four hours later, with less dizziness and able to get out of bed.
A visit to my doctor resulted in two scripts. Phenergran and Prednisone. Just wondering if anyone has ever had an attack this bad where you can't move to save your life and vomit for 30 minutes or so. I am seeing a specialist tomorrow. He specializes in ears and I believe that's the root of all evil with my situation.
Any help or advise on this attack would help. I'm afraid this could happen again and I might be in public, not in my own home, in my own bed. Is there a long term treatment for Vertigo? Do you just learn to live around it, similar to the fibromyalgia and intermittent hearing loss?
