(no subject)

vertigo flared up today. this usually only happens if I get really, stupidly upset and cry a lot. but I haven't, so I don't know what's up. gotta spend a lot of time in bed because moving = more vertigo and nausea. but it's even worse for my back. the laying around, I mean. so I don't know.

also today my period started up (a few hours after the vertigo arrived) so now I'm dealing with cramps on top of awful back pain and being unable to move my head certain ways without feeling like the world is tipping in alarming ways.

UGH.

it's possible that your period caused the vertigo. It can happen (it's happened to me, and other people i know)

hi, Greenie! I've missed you! So glad you're feeling a little better.

A nurse at work explained to me that the Epley maneuver works pretty well to self-treat vertigo (since vertigo is because of floaty crap in your inner ear causing havoc). I know this post is two days old, but next time you have an issue, give it a try! I've seen it work effectively. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llvUbxEoadQ

(They have another video for the other side but it's just reversed movements. There's also one where you kneel on the floor.)

Must be something about having the spins that makes your recall less than perfect, I suppose. ;)
