~ Vertigo is NOT fun! ~



Yes, it hit quite suddenly Saturday afternoon when I was trying to get ready to go out to dinner. I haven't been doing much since then which is such a waste of time IMHO.  Went to the Dr yesterday afternoon and he said it was inner ear/sinus problems...which I knew. :-)  Gave me a shot as well as a nasal spray to try. I also picked up some Anti-Vert and Mucinex. What I did have was not working so well ~ let's hope this does the trick!  He also said to drink lots of fluids and rest so that's what I'm doing.  We have such gorgeous weather this week ~ in the 50's at night and low 80's during the day. When I can, I take Forrester out for lovely walks and just breathe in the cooler air and observe the tinges of fall ~ love it!  Ok, back to rest, books & movies.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

I know what you mean about the Vertigo.
It really is a bummer.

We are having lovely weather here also.

Hope you feel better soon!

Oh, I feel for you. My husband had vertigo a few years back and he had quite a time with it. I hope you get feeling better.

I hope you feel well soon. My SIL had it and she couldn't even drive. Your doctor sounds like he knows what he is doing.

Thinking of you...

XO,

I've had it too and know how you feel. :-( Keep resting.

for me: It didn't go away and I went through a barrage of tests. they manipulated my head and I felt better!

I just hate that ol' vertigo! I had it off and on for a long time when my kids were younger. There is nothing fun about trying to navigate after-school pick-up traffic when your head is swimming! I finally had a doctor who showed me some simple exercises that ice skaters do to "fatigue" the nerves that are involved and ease the dizziness. They actually helped quite a bit. The exercises were actually quite simple. You might can google it and see if you can find an example of how ice skaters deal with the spinning? At any rate, I hope it passes quickly and you can get back to your routine. The weather has been lovely and it's a shame to feel bad!
