The other day I was sitting in my chair in my office and I looked up at the ceiling and I believe I had my first real bout of vertigo. Not severe, but certainly the room felt as if it was moving. I came home and when I laid on my bed I felt the same thing.
A little back drop would be I put in a tough Yoga class the night before, and didn't hydrate during the next day when this happen. I'd like to attribute it to that. I have also not had the spinning sensation since. A bout of BPPV?
I've stayed hydrated, but still had the HA "off" feeling ever since which I've had several times after a freak out. I'm not slurring words....but feel like I could start any minute. I'm feeling unbalanced, but can stand on 1 foot for more than a minute and can seemingly balance with eyes closed for while as well. My legs feel weak, but I can run and do 50 push ups without a ton of effort. Pretty sure I'd pass a basic neurological exam.
The mental "off" has lasted a few hours to a month or so in the past. Xanax seems to help a touch.
I'm not going to make a Dr Appointment, as I feel like this is just another one of those things I need to punch in the face on my own. However, wanted to know if any similar episodes have happened to anyone else?
And the topic....Oh. Just one of the conditions I have dx'd myself with over the last 8-9 years. This recent deal just plays in the Brain Tumor fears....or 15 other ones.
Thanks for any encouraging words.
