Hi, have you asked health professionals about this ??

If you can why not try the ant seasick wristbands?? And maybe the brandt daroff exercises if they are safe ?? ☺


Hi I still suffer a lot from dizziness and also headaches my physio told me to slow down when getting up


Hi SUSIE thanks for the reply i was told the same as regards getting up but my dizziness is with me constantly it overtakes me sometimes and i have fallen due to it at least 3 times ,i am very grateful to still be around as my surgeon said only 5% of people survive this type of strokebut this dizziness does get you down,nice to hear from you .
