As I have been through this so many times in this life, have any of you found anything to help the dizziness. I attribute this bout to stress as I am buying my first home and we move on Friday after 4 months of dealing with banks and so on. But, I have been so dizzy for the past week and I know I am under a lot of stress with this move and purchase.  Just looking for anyone who may have found something that helps. I can't really just lay down and rest as I have a 1 year old, never mind a house to pack, but hard to do all that with the dizziness.
P.S. I don't like to take "drugs" so alternative ideas would be great. Making sure I eat and drink plenty of water. Trying to continue to breathe even though I may have stopped doing so when we found out we got our dream house last week.

HI Jeminij

i'm not sure about hurbs but when i started to have dizzyness my Dr gave me Meclizine 12.5mg 3x day. it has helped me a lot. you may want to look into it. and you can buy it OTC. it also comes in 25mg and you can cut them inhalf.

good luck and enjoy your new home and your lil one :)
still looking for answers.
Remember that advice is free, its your choice what you do with it.  :)

Try ginger.  Ginger anything.  Ginger tea is quite helpful for me.   I have chronic vertigo and I can get very nauseas.  Ginger tea really helps.

I agree. Hoping after the move I feel better again. I usually am worse during stressful times so I anticipated this happening, but the timing just stinks as I have so much to do and no time to feel this way. If only we got to decide.

Excitement or stress makes your lyme worse. Vertigo.
I don't think that there is any pill to stop you from bumping into
Make sure to be taking lots of vit and supp. and try to get calm and take it easier and save your energy for your baby.

I am doing most of the packing, but he and my father are doing all of the moving. That's the plan anyway. I def. feel much worse this week than I have in a very long time so I have to attribute it to moving and trying to get everything done. My brother is also visiting tomorrow from Colorado with my 15 month old nephew who I have never met so we have a lot planned this same weekend. Not sure I will make it at this point, but once all is said and done, I should be feeling better. I hate stressful events even if they are very exciting. I just wish this week was over already and that I could magically be there and be settled in for the winter. My only saving grace is that I will not be moving again for at least 10 years. I just have to remember now to breathe, eat and try to sleep.

I wish I could give you something,but all I all I have is my heartfelt understanding.I've been so dizzy at times I had to just lay down and close my eyes so as not watch the room spinning at a staggering and alarming rate/speed untill it subsided. Eventually over many months this symptom(one of dozzens)got fewer and farther between and faded awayyyyyyyyyyyyyy.Hang on tight,this too shall pass.
