Has anyone else experienced sudden bouts of vertigo? I woke up this morning with a mild case. I'm fine as long as I'm not looking up or down. Not good. I haven't had any issues with this until today. I've been doing pretty well since my event 2 months ago.

Hi Todd and welcome

 

Not had vertigo but in the early days looking down or bending over used to make me feel very sick and dizzy.  May be worth getting in touch with your GP or Consultant for advice though.

I get giddy when I wake up, and I cannot jump out of bed as before I have to sit there and wait !! and only then do I get up and dash to loo !!

 

So try sitting before you move I have noticed picking things up off floor = bad move and move slower but still see Doc  xx Put your mind at ease.

 

Hope all goes well xxxx You also Jess xxxx

Vertigo is something I suffered from occasionally  before my SAH, I had a few bouts of labyrinthitis and it was nasty. Since the SAH I have small episodes of dizziness/vertigo generally when I have a bad bout of head pain or am very tired. I did ask my GP about it and she said to keep a note of it and mention it at my next neurology appointment.

 

I hate the feeling and find closing my eyes and counting slowly to an arbitrary number (depends how dizzying  feel) calms me down so I can work through it. Definitely echo the advice to see a GP as if it is labyrinthitis there is some treatment out there.

I went through a spell of something like vertigo early in my recovery. It would hit me suddenly if I looked up. Sometimes it came on for no apparent reason. It mostly passed in a few months. Although I still occasionaly suffer from the “staggers”.
