I have had mild epiodes of dizziness....vertigo..before but nothing like this.
I wa just sitting here at the computer and next thing I know is it seemed as though my chair had collasped and the desk and computer were falling over on top of me...headed for my face!
I reached out to hold them back and....of course, try to save the laptop from crashing to the floor.
Within a second it was obvious nothing had actually happened except that I had scattered all the papers all over the floor but must have bumped my forehead and had vague dizzyness.

A hour later now, I still don't feel 'quite right' and have a slight headache(in the back) and head feels "full" or sort of cottony.
You know that feeling of falling when you're asleep or almost and jerking reaction ? Do you think it's possible I could have fallen asleep for a micro second and not realized it and had that happen?
All I know is I am kind of reluctant to drive ....even to go to a clinic

  • I suppose you might have been dreaming, but if you have bouts of vertigo from time to time, perhaps you should have your ears checked. My mom had Ménière's Disease, an inner ear disease and it caused Vertigo, among other things.
