As fun as yesterday was, today I’ve been laid up with vertigo.
I’ve had vertigo several times. Vertigo, also known as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), is disconcerting.
I haven’t been drunk in many years, but I casually explain that vertigo feels like being drunk without any of “the fun” someone might have hoped for.
Usually when I’ve had vertigo symptoms once I do the Epley Maneuver the spins and the nausea caused by vertigo go away within a few hours. This time, no.
I left work and went home to relax. Relaxing has helped, but solved nothing. I’ve struggled with the spins and the nausea all-day.
I’ve watch a many videos on youtube looking for helpful help. The consensus is I’m doing the right things. I guess I’ll have to be patient.
Note: The knee injury is sustained this month prevented me from trying Carol Foster’s technique, but it looks like a helpful choice for others.
Here’s some “Vertigo” you might enjoy more that the vertigo I have.
Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo
