Dizziness is the Worst

This past Saturday I suddenly started having random bouts of dizziness. It was awful. The room would suddenly start spinning when I bent over or looked up. I figured it was my sinuses beginning to act up.

Sunday after church I decided to take a trip to Urgent Care to see what was going on. I apparently have an upper respiratory infection with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It is triggered by certain changes in head position, such as tipping the head up or down. The doctor gave me a medication to help with the dizziness.

This vertigo business is no joke! I woke up this morning sick to my stomach, the room was spinning and laying down just made it worse. I took the medication as well as an over the counter medication and though it’s not completely gone, at least I can function.

Have you ever experienced vertigo? How did it make you feel? What remedies work for you?
