Vertigo Sucks!I am just a baby today, i have cried several times. It's so frustrating. I never knew that vertigo could be so debilitating and annoying. I can't even seem to think straight. The meclizine (antivert) makes me incrediably drowsy and I've only taken one dose. I'm sure it's my right ear b/c it feels like there is pressure in it. I found a set of exercises on line that you can do to try and 'clean the debris' out of the inner ear and will have my husband assist me with them later. I wasn't able to get ready for work today. I ran into the rear view mirror of the truck when I took the dogs outside, and busted my lip. I'm sitting here now b/c I don't even want to walk around again.
I'll get mickey to drive me to work and if I can just sit at the desk I'll be alright. I guess I'll call my ent tomorrow if it's still this severe.
I feel for anyone who has this regularly, I had no idea how terrible it is.
It's like being incrediably drunk w/out the fun effects of alcohol. I even look like a drunk, it feels like i'm bouncing off the walls down the hallway. I need to finish laundry, empty the dishwasher, put the dishes in the dishwasher, but I can't do any of that b/c it's too excrutiating to feel like that. My husband will have to jump in and take care of things for a bit. He offered to come home and take care of me, but there isn't anything he can do.
I feel so whiney b/c I shouldn't feel this bad over just being dizzy and having no balance.
