Weird night..

Posted , 4 users are following.

So last night was definitely weird.. I have (what the doctors think) labyrinthitis, and my obvious anxiety. I've been dizzy off and on all day and when I wasn't I was anxious/depressed. I went to lay down in bed and watch a movie. I started to get tired so I closed my eyes and then fell asleep for a couple seconds. I kept waking up anxious and dizzy. My eyes would focus for a few then go in and out. Focus then blurry, focus then blurry. I would get super tired and then doze of for a few minutes and I would wake up doing the same thing. This went on for a couple hours then I finally got to sleep. I woke up this morning and I just feel eh. Kind of sick to my stomach and anxious. Scared of what was happening last night I guess. I didn't take anything for it, so I'm guessing it's just my anxiety and the basic dizziness from labyrnith. Anyone else ever deal with that?

    You just described the same night that I had and it happens a few times a month for me. My doctors have done nothing about my constant dizziness and everytime I get dizzy I start to panic. After my eyes start to get blurry its almost like the muscle in my eye "jumps" and then my vision goes back to normal.  I hope that you feel better soon. Remember- you are not alone.

      Yeah, that's pretty much exactly how it is. I wish there was a way I could stop it. Plus every morning I feel like I can't wake up. Groggy, and drugged up kind of feeling. Kind of like all I want to do is sleep and when I close my eyes its like my mind is in overtime going insane over everything and anything.

    I have trouble in the morning also. It takes a good 4 hours for me to wake up- and thats only if the anxiety has not caused a frenzy. i have been trying to go to bed early and its helping some. I also make myself take a vitamin and have a bottle of water in the morning. I contribute the groggy feeling to the anxiety. Its like my brain has trouble putting my thoughts together. Everything gets all mixed up. Does that make any sense? lol

    Hello Lockerby

    Labyrinthitis is horrible......I actually keeled over in my garden, and thought my end had come.  Then I would get an awful buzzing in my left ear, and my head would sort of shake/vibrate with it until the buzzing stopped, whilst feeling dizzy with it as well.

    I was on meds for it, and it took about 6-8 weeks to clear up.  What a relief when it did clear!    Good Luck.
