    I've been put on medication which might be helping a little. Still don't know what's causing it.....3 weeks now. Waiting....waiting...waiting. I have to go back in a couple of weeks. Thanks for asking.

    UPDATE: Finally, after weeks of feeling horrible, I'm on the road to recovery. I drove today for the first time in over 6 weeks. Nurse Practitioner gave me medication...made it worse. N.P. then added a second medication, made it even worse! After 5 weeks, I went to a Physiotherapist who did a manoever with my head and bingo.....fixed! I just need to do some exercises (very easy ones) to re-train my brain. Apparently, the brain tries to compensate for your lack of balance and it just needs to learn the proper position again. Yay!!!

    I've also learned that everyone with dizziness, light headedness, a feeling of being off balance, will refer to it as vertigo. It is not. Vertigo can be seen in the eyes....the eyes bounce up and down and in most cases, true vertigo causes dry heaves/vomiting. Wow, who knew?

    Many thanks to all who expressed concern. I appreciated that along with your prayers!

    It's pretty awful. All I can do is sit still and not move my head. :(

    This symptom results from a lack of Gluten in the diet.


    I'm joking of course.  


    Please get better soon.

    ....yes, when I experienced a mini stroke; closing one eye seemed to help at the time


    ....please, consult a doctor

    Thanks Ben. That will be happening next week. I'm hoping it's just an inner ear infection which is fairly common. :(

    Thanks Terry. I was walking into walls and spinning when lying down. Yikes!! I have a real aversion to going to visit health care providers but I'm actually looking forward to it this time. :(

    When I had it, my doctor diagnosed it as high blood pressure, he gave me extra tablets, and it stopped.

    My BP is always excellent so it's not that for me. I'll hopefully find out soon.

    Good luck Ducky, my wife had the same thing,her problem was in her inner ear. Let's hope the doctors can sort it for you.
