How many of you have vertigo on a daily basis.  I have had this for over a month and it is spiratic and I have to take medicine for it!  As if I don't take enough medicine on a daily basis as it is!  Julesblush

Hey Jules,
I have had chronic vertigo for over three years now.  I have it everyday.  There are days that I am nauseous from it and other days where it feels like I am walking on a boat.  When I am sick from it, I take klonopin with meclizine and that keeps me from vomiting.  Most days I just deal with it.  After a while you actually get used to it.  My husband coined the "beer rating scale."  He did this when he asked me, "What does it feel like?"  And I responded, that it is like having 2 or 3 beers and trying to walk.  I have to watch every step.  I am a falling risk from this and tend to have very bad balance.  I have also found ginger to work well to settle the stomach. 
I hope you find your vertigo to be temporary.  I hope you can get some relief.

I, too, suffer from Vertigo on a daily basis. It is really bad when I shower. A friend told me to try Dramaine and believe it or not it worked. It may not be for everyone but it helps me.
Crohns/IBS/IBD - also suffer from TMJ, Tinnitus, Bruxism, Hyperacusis, Migraines, Fibromyalgia and I am Ototoxic

Current meds: 16 mcg Amitiza, 3 mg Xanax, 40mg Prednisone (it varies, my GI lets me decide) 20 mg Flexeril and 1300 mg Darvocet

vertigo, yes. on a daily basis, no. I do hope you can get some relief, it can be very incapacitating!
fibromyalgia and possible trigeminal neuralgia
50 mgs amitriptyline daily, T3s for facial pain (really not appropriate med) and now tramacet

Julie, do you get migraines at all? I've had typical migraines all my life with aura, blinding pain, nausea and vomiting, etc. and when I first started to notice the fibro, I noticed my migraines changed. Sometimes they don't hurt at all but make me absolutely nauseated with vertigo. I wound up in the ER twice after thinking it was my medication (gabapentin, Cymbalta, tramadol, flexeril). I mentioned this at work and found out one of my co-workers gets them too, without pain. I was told they are ocular migraines that happen in the eye nerve. I'd like to learn more about this.

Developed in India, yoga is a spiritual practice that has been evolving for the last 5,000 years or so. The original yogis were reacting, in part, to India's ancient Vedic religion, which emphasized rituals. The yogis wanted a direct spiritual experience -- one on one -- not symbolic ritual. So they developed yoga.Yoga means "union" in Sanskrit, the classical language of India.
According to the yogis, true happiness, liberation and enlightenment comes from union with the divine consciousness known as Brahman, or with Atman, the transcendent Self. The various yoga practices are a methodology for reaching that goal.
In hatha yoga, for example, postures and breathing exercises help purify the mind, body and spirit so the yogi can attain union.
Pranayama breathing exercises help clear the nadis, or channels, that carry prana the universal life force, allowing prana to flow freely. When the channels are clear and the last block at the base of the spine has been
opened, Kundalini rises through the spine, through the central channel called the sushumna-nadi, and joins the crown chakra. According to the tradition, the release of Kundalini leads to enlightenment and union.
