Spinning round round

I have been sick with migraines and vertigo for several weeks now. My doctor is (finally) sending me to a neurolgist that specializes in migraine headaches. Days go by. Sick to my stomach. Can't seem to have any time without spinning in my head. The weather is so hot here too. It is suppose to be 93 degrees today. That makes me feel worse. I know that I am rambling on but I feel lost . I have had problems with vertigo before but not this bad. I am suppose to help someone move tomorrow but I don't know if I can.

krazy-girl ... I have migraines and many other problems with my Fibro ~ including vertigo, nausea, and dizziness. I would let the person you are supposed to help, know now that you are feeling so bad, and *probably* can't help them tomorrow, so they can call someone else. I'm sure they will understand that you REALLY need to take care of yourself, esp. in that heat. It will definitely only compound your issues! I know I couldn't even be up walking around, much less helping with a MOVE! Just think of it this way: if you try to go, and then can't stay, they won't have gotten anyone to help in your place, so this is best for everyone ...

I finally got help for my migraines (plus) from a referral to a neurologist, and I really hope you get quick answers and help when you have your upcoming appt. Till then, gentle hugs coming your way ... bk

I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to this asap. I am not surprised that you feel worse with temperatures like that? Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you



Hi I get vertigo quite badly too. A few months ago had an attack in Tesco and it was so embarrassing. They called the ambulance because I was retching and couldn't get up. I now am scared to go anywhere in public. The doctor says it has nothing to do with fibro and is the inner ear. I have had tinnitus for years and he thinks it is Ménière's disease. I take serc tablets 3 times a day to control the attacks. Also the GP gives me anti sickness pills called stemetel. Hope you feel better soon. If it's not one thing it's another!


I feel for you I have had vertigo for years (bppv) I take 2 Betahistine tablets to control nausea.. I am waiting for appointment for ENT as there is a manouvre they can perform on you which I hope will help me. I cannot go out without being accompanied as you will know attacks hit without warning and I am self concious that I appear to look as if I am drunk. Ask to be reffered to ENT



I have seen the Ent specialist and nothing they can do other than medication. Have had this for 15 years but never the spinning and sickness. I only used to feel off balance. I look like I am falling over drunk and I get anxious going out. Going for a meL this afternoon and not really looking forward to it but am making the effort because otherwise I would never go anywhere. Bit unfair on my husband but unless you have had vertigo you really can't understand can you.
