Fortunately, I am much better this morning. I have a little bit still, but I'm getting acclimated to it and compensating for it I guess, but it is nothing compared to yesterday. It really kind of scared me to be that much out of control of my surroundings. It's a good lesson to me about taking things for granted that I am blessed with each day, like balance.
I took several decongenstants and I do think that helped, along w/ some exercises I found on webmd that are supposed to move those calcium deposits out of the way of those areas that cause the problem. It just kind of freaks me out that this could and probably will happen again from time to time and be so severe. ugh! I can tell my rt ear still isn't right, but will keep taking the decongestants to keep things dried up in there.
I just feel really blessed this morning to walk around w/out feeling like I will fall down or throw up. It was just terrible! I pretty much did what doug had said though and laid down most of the day and was very careful if I had to use the steps, that was scarey.
I don't think I realized how debilitating it could be, now I will be very sympathetic and compassionate to anyone w/ vertigo. I don't think my husband realized it was bothering me to the extent that it was and upon his arrival home, played a joke to make me follow his finger w/ my eyes, then he started to giggle, and I just cried and said 'why would you do that to me?". He wasn't trying to be mean, he just didn't realize that even that put the world into spins for me, but he surely did after the crying fit I had. I also noticed that my mind was really foggy and I was easily overstimulated by noises, I guess it really knocks you out in several areas to have your equilibrium out of whack.
thank you again everyone!
