    I'm sorry to hear you're suffering. My half sister had diagnosed vertigo for about 7 months. She literally had to crawl around on the floor - I hope yours isnt as bad. I'm not sure what meds she was on, but I don't think they did enough to eliminate all symptoms to allow her return to her normal routine. It faded away almost as fast as it came on with no solid diagnosis as to why or what caused it.
    I worried it was something that ran in the family, when about 8 months ago, I spent a weekend in bed because the room was spinning. It turned out it was diabetes for me and once I got my sugar under control I havent had any more episodes.

    It's very disorienting, to say the least. I hope you find a solution soon.

    GWguy already said it, but it's worth reiterating how important it is to make sure you have no ear wax build up or pressure on your inner ear like water from swimmer's ear. The inner ear is the epicenter of your body's balance mechanism.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    A friend has BPPV which is supposedly common but you should see a doctor to make sure it is not something more serious

    I have an appointment Monday. I should have gone sooner but was afraid to drive. I think mine is BPPV. My right ear has been bothering me. Not painful just feels clogged or something isn't right.

    Try a Neti Pot in combination of what you are already doing.... it will get worse before it gets better.

    I have Meniere's disease so I have been there and do hope you feel better soon. There is nothing worse than
    how your feeling.
    Please neuter and spay your pets.... and your weird friends and relatives.

    Thank you. I've been using the Neti Pot too. Come to think of it, I had a splitting sinus pressure headache the weekend before all of this started. I get those a lot, but it may be tied into this. By bet is the doctor is going to send me to an ENT specialist. I thought I was getting better and didn't take the medicine the other day (it makes want to nap all the time). Mistake, was dizzy and off balance 1/2 the day. I just want this to go away! I appreciate all of the input everyone has given me.
