What is wrong with me? I can't stop crying I'm so scared!
« on: April 05, 2014, 02:13:43 PM »
Ever since I came home on Monday from a plane trip I've been experiencing extreme vertigo. It's miserable. I am so off balance and sick. I went to the ER AND THEY CONFIRMED vertigo. At work today I felt like I was going to faint it was so bad. This is the Tird time it has happened, and it's scaring the ***** out of me. I am so afraid to faint. I had to leave work it was so bad for the third day. Is their normal with vertigo? Is there something worse going on. I am so scared

Really don't need to panic - vertigo is an inner ear problem.  I get it when I'm in elevators sometimes, so I can imagine being on a plane would be hell on the inner ear!  (I've never flown myself, but I'm sure if I did I would be feeling like you are now!)  Try dramamine or bonine.  Be warned, bonine pills taste AWFUL and the taste is hard to get rid of, so I'd recommend taking it with flavored milk; the only thing that killed the taste for me!

That can happen with plane trips.  It throws your equilibrium off.  Did the ER prescribe anything?  Meclizine works great.  It's the prescription form of Bonine.

See an ent. They know more about this type of stuff. It could just from the plane. See if it will pass and if not, get a referral to ent.

Is it normal to have lightheaded spells with it? That's what is freaking me out . I get these lightheaded spells that come with pressure in my forehead, and like ill pass out. It happened twice at work. And how long do vertigo spells and symptoms last for?
