and when she stops nobody knows. turn
I've been having some vertigo issues lately. Riding as a passenger in a car, turning over in bed, getting out of a chair too quickly
They usually aren't very severe and fade quickly, but this morning was the worse attack...
I sat up in bed (slowly, the only way I can) and the whole world tilted. I lay down quickly and wait for it to pass. Tried to sit up again-fell back down. Waited a few minutes felt better-tried again- back down... nono
It took 15 minutes with me having a bursting bladder blush   until I decided to risk it. I managed to stagger to the next room on my path to the bathroom. I had to grab a chair, sit down and hold on to the table to keep me from falling over. skull
I managed to get to the bathroom in time and I just took my time with the morning until I felt safe to move normal.
Do any of you get vertigo really bad like that?

I do get vertigo from time to time - though not often. Does seem worst in the mornings, and makes for a lurching trip to the bathroom. Sometimes it comes on at night, but I don't think I've ever had it more than 24-36 hours. Wondered if it was associated with the autoimmune stuff. Seems like it often comes on soon after I notice ear pain or pressure.

Hope it goes away for you soon!

Hi Joy! I am sorry you are going dealing with that....its miserable. I had severe vertigo last fall, any forward/backward movement would bring the dizziness on. Even rolling over in bed would wake me out of sleep. They put me on antihistamines for 2 weeks and then meclizine for 30 days and it still didn't clear. I ended up getting a referral to a hearing and balance center and the doctor performed a canalith repositioning. Within 24 hours I started to feel better and was back to 100% within a week.

I hope you start feeling better soon!
