Stop the world from spinning please......

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Yes, please stop the spinning. Have you ever had a bad hangover from to much partying. The world seems like it is spinning and you can't stop it!!! Lol
Well that is exactly how I am feeling but not because of partying it is due to Menier's Disease!!!
This is a horrible spinning sensation and I have suffered from this for quite a while. I do take medication but it seems that lately I have been getting some real strong bouts of spinning.
This is the worse thing you can imagine and I am just hugging the walls to keep from falling.
Here is a link to tell you a bit about this condition in case anyone thinks that vertigo is just when you are seasick or a quick fix.

So I guess I will be following up with my doctor to see if I can have my meds adjusted or if it is just due to the stress of everything going on. They say stress is one of the factors that can make it worse.

So please - stop the world from spinning!!

    So sorry you are Spinning! I have a good friend who also has this disease and was so bad she would just lay down on the sidewalk outside to keep from falling. Finally a Dr. put her on a strict diet - No Sugar, No Gluten, No a bunch of other things and she is doing much better. Hope the Dr. can figure out a way to make you better really FAST!

    I sure hope the doctor can adjust your meds and get you feeling better. After reading the MEDMD article I am so concerned for you. emoticon

    I've had a few short bouts with vertigo and it is seriously no fun. Glad your Dr. is taking it seriously.

    emoticon About 18 years ago, I had a severe attack of vertigo. I tried to go to work but was so dizzy (it was awful) that I had to pull over to throw up. I slowly drove back home and called in sick. My problem was finding a doctor who could fit me in for an appointment. Everyone was busy except for my pulmonary specialist. I drove to his office and had to hold the wall as I made my way into the building. He was very alarmed at my appearance, lack of balance and the fact that I drove by myself to his office. He gave me a note for work to stay off work for five days, call my primary and scheduled an appointment on the fifth day and called in a prescription. I had to promise to get hubby to pick up the prescription and I had to go home and stay in bed. It was horrible. I can't imagine having a disease where you are like that all the time. I was off balance for 2 weeks and it was the longest 2 weeks of my life. It is no joking matter. I had a student who was debilitated by it for 2.5 years. When she started back to school she was in a wheelchair. She used to hang out in my classroom to talk to me. By the time,the school year had ended, she was walking with a cane and had had intense physical therapy to rehabilitate all of her muscles so she could walk again. She was one of the most courageous people I had ever had the pleasure to teach.

    I can't even imagine how difficult this must be for you. I really hate that spinning feeling. I hope your doctor can help take care of this soon!

    Hang in there and do talk to your doctor soon. If he take emails, as some clinics are starting to do, might be faster.
