Hi, everyone, I use to have vertigo about 2 times a year, now I get it at the "drop of a hat".
When I get up I feel like there is some excess fluid in the back of my head. Then my mid morning, I start getting dizzy (usually at work), I start
spinning, and slurring my words. I then have to be taken home. I can't plan ANYTHING and never know when it will happen. Someone told me to pay attention to the barametric pressure. I even went to a chiropractor, felt better when he was finished but an hour later was in bad shape.
I went to an ENT speicalist, he said he did not think it was my ear canal and sent me to a neurologist. I said he thought it was my ear canal. He is sending me to a vestibular rehad.
I don't know how long my boss can "put up with me". My sons tell me to file for disability. I also have GRaves Disease and have to wear prisms in my glasses.
Any thoughts out there?
