Hi Mary, thanks for your support. I've not checked my email the last few days, but will later on for sure.
My vertigo came on suddenly in Jan 07. One good episode. Then other symptoms started to appear over the months following that. I was then dx with Lupus in April 07, then Lyme disease in Aug 07. It was terrible.
My vertigo still comes once and a while but more so I get the dizzies.Never in my life did I ever get dizzy from anxiety or dizzy for that matter so this was all new to me.
The two huge episodes of vertigo causes nausea for sure, but the short spurt ones, not really. I fell over on the first episode, but when I feel dizzy, I stay home and will not get in my car. etc...
I feel the vertigo is an issue with my either sinus or inner ear since I also get SEVERE ear ringing and face pressure. It's all condusive to lyme and lupus. Who knows!
Mary, you can try to irrigate your sinuses when you have vertigo, It does help. I used salt water and put a few drops of oil or oregano and irrigate with those. It takes a good portion of the pressure away.
I also used to have horrible IBS and diarrhea from my anxiety. I got rid of that once and for all.
As for leaving the pharmacy; years ago, I would have just left, but I just can't let this win. I'm in cognative therapy now and determined this time to beat the anxiety, or at least control it so it stops controlling me.
It wasn't easy though, I really REALLY wanted to leave the pharmacy.
