I’m on day four with a vertigo attack, my first. I was diagnosed with meniere,s over 13 years ago but have never suffered with vertigo until now, out of nowhere, when I got up out of the recliner to go to bed the walls were moving and my balance was off. The next morning I could barely get to the bathroom. When I laid back in bed it felt like weights inside my head would shift to the back of my head and cause my head to be forced down. If I moved my head even a 1/2 inch I would get dizzy and feel nauseous. I was almost certain what I was experiencing was true vertigo. Stayed in bed all that day. Next morning I moved to the recliner and my wife called my ENT. They confirmed over the phone it sounded like vertigo. He called in something for the nausea and a steroid pack. Day 3 was much better. I could walk around wo getting nauseous and the walls stopped moving and I could focus again, so I started researching the net.
After reading as much as I could, here and elsewhere, I’ve figured out there’s not much doctors or medications can do to prevent vertigo from reoccurring, so I’ve decided to drink more water, a lot more water and start taking a magnesium supplement. I’m almost certain this came on because I let my guard down with my salt intake and unnoticed dehydration. Also I’m going to start back exercising (had Covid about six months ago which depleted my energy level and never got back in the routine) hopefully this will keep vertigo in control, if that’s possible.
Anyone else doing something similar or different to help keep vertigo dormant?
