Vertigo has happened to me only once before but nothing like this! I woke up in the wee hours to go pee and was overcome with dizziness and sudden waves of nausea. I couldn't even get up from bed..... The whole world was spinning and I felt like I was tumbling backwards.
Long story short, DH helped me down the stairs (I went down sitting step by step). I ended up in the ER where they ruled out stroke, brain tumors, etc. etc. . That was Monday morning. After a battery of tests and blood work, I was sent home later same day with a boatload of prescriptions.
I'm still facing the same laundry list of things I need to do for Christmas and haven't done any of them. I only manage to get around if I hold on firmly to a wall and tell myself repeatedly, that 'this too shall pass'.
Never had it this bad and so I need to commiserate. Has anyone else here suffered from Vertigo? How did you manage? How long did it last?
