I woke up one morning and found myself intensely dizzy with vertigo and vomiting and as time progressed I noticed mental fog as well. Once I articulated that I felt drunk all the time, I began to search online for answers that two urgent cares and one ER hadn't given me. I was overwhelmed with the possible causes and terrified to read that some people were simply learning to live feeling this way. Finally I saw a doctor who nearly instantaneously knew what was afflicting me- benignl paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Please all your doctor if this could be it, many people experience this yet it is rarely diagnosed correctly. I felt such relief finally having a diagnosis and knowing that it can be cured I wanted to share with others who might be impacted by BPPV.
