Vertigo ~ what is it? how does it effect my daily life?
My first bout with this awful feeling of loss of balance was in April of 2016. I basically stood up from my couch on Sunday evening and got extremely dizzy and nauseated. Then, I proceeded to fall. I missed work for almost three weeks. It lasted about 10 weeks before I felt like myself. I would not wish this upon my worst enemy.
During this time my husband had to help me take a shower for fear that I was going to fall right through the shower doors. How helpless I felt, but thank you for the amazing man that I married.
I went to the doctors office and they could not figure out how it came about. They prescribed me predizone, antidizzy meds and whatever else. I also had a MRI on my brain to make sure there was no issues there. Came back good.
Well, April of this year, 2017, I got it again. I missed a week of work this time and it lasted about two weeks. Whew!!!!! I am not back to work. Thank goodness.
Here are a few things for you to link to if you would like more information. I can only explain how I felt, but maybe these articles will help others.
I wish you all the best and Stay Gold!!!!!
