Hi Louloumorgan

Yes I keep getting dizzy spells even when sat down if I move my head in to certain postion when I'm stood up I have to wait for it to past it makes me feel like I'm going to fall !!! And my eyes 👀goes blurry then all of a sudden they go alright

I am on medication for CRPS

Targinact ,mirtazapine ,pregablin ,duloxetine and loads more for CRPS

I believe it's is one of the tablets but I can't pin point which one ,which I am sorry for

Take care

I don't like going back and fro to the Drs either but I think you should always check out dizzy spells, maybe it's. Low blood pressure, or a side effect of the meds your on, I get it if I stand up too quickly , I have low blood pressure, take care

Hello louloumorgan

It is really important that you get any symptoms that are new to you checked out.

As has been said dizzy spells could be low blood pressure, vertigo or a number of other things.

l completely understand where you are coming from with regard to keep going to the doctors, but I really do think that you should get this checked out.

If for nothing else, to put your mind at rest.

Wishing you less pain and more peace

There is a possibility you have vertigo- this is an imbalance in your inner ear somewhere, you need doc to check it for you, there is medicaction to ease the problem if it is.. otherwise look at he meds you take now and ask pharmacist if any of them are nor compatible

My hubby gets something similar, the doctor said it was Labarynthitis and it would pass, which it did but comes back from time to time.

You should check it out with your GP if it is a recent new symptom though.

Hi i have this it's called BPPV benign paroxymal peripheral vertigo it's a build up in my inner ear you can google it and it will tell you and show you how to do some exercises that should help you. I had to be reffered to the hospital to have it diagnosed. The best advice you can get is to visit your gp gentle hugs xx

Hi louloumorgan

I really am so genuinely sorry to read that you are experiencing this horrid issue, and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution to the problem. It could be being caused by so many things (Fibro, never issues, vertigo, blood pressure etc) that I would have it checked out just to remove other medical conditions from the equitation.

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken

It might be worth checking if you have labrynthitis. I had that about six months ago. It causes vertigo like symptoms.

The doctor should be able to tell. Hope you get it sorted.
