For the second time in about 2 weeks I have woken up feeling really dizzy when I'm up and moving around, or even when I move my eyes from side to side. I can't figure out why but it's beginning to worry me. I thought maybe I needed to eat but that didn't help before and it hasn't helped today. First time the dizziness came upon me it lasted most of the day but then went away later in evening. The first spell took place before I began my Humira 9 days ago so I know that's not what it is, and none of my other meds have changed in months. I'm confused and now a bit worried. Anyone else with CD experienced this?? Thanks! sad

The only other med I am taking is 75mg Effexor once a day, Entocort 3x per day, and hydrocodone as needed for pain.

Dizziness was one of my first and main symptoms before I was dx'd with CD this summer. I was having dizzy spells, sometimes with the shakes and sweats/chills for months before I got dx'd. They kept telling me stress, but now I know that this is a symptom of the CD. I also have some blurring in my vision - ever so slight. I usually feel better in the evening too. Also, of course, I now know that I must get enough rest or I'm doomed. I also feel better when I make sure to take my daily vitamin. Sometimes it just feels like my head is "full" or wobbly on my neck - hard to explain but definitely not right. Good luck. I'm just sort of learning to live with it at this point because nothing gets rid of it completely.
