This is my night. I lay down in bed propped up..almost sitting straight up, I close my eyes and I get dizzy and get hit with overwhelming nausea! Every single night. I don't get it. It takes me hours to fall asleep. I've tried taking anti nausea meds but it doesn't help. I'm getting really frustrated with this. I can barely keep my eyes open but as soon as I try to fall asleep, BAM nausea. Anyone else have this or how to make it stop?

Good Morning,

Have you discussed this issue with your physician and decided what causes the dizziness?  Have you ever been dx with an inner ear problem.

Also there are other medication that will treat the dizziness versus the nausea.  You can purchase OTC Antivert that you may want to take an hour or so before bedtime.

Please remember I am not a professional so do check with your physician.

Take care,

I've never had any ear problems. This just started recently, meaning within the past few weeks but it's getting worse. A CNA friend told me to try Dramamine.
