    Anyone been diagnosed with Vertigo?

    Just wondering if you have and how long have you had it.

    I just recently had to make a trip to the ER as I thought I was having a stroke or worse a heart-attack as I just didn't feel right. The whole room was spinning, had sweats real bad a headache and felt like I had to vomit and could barely walk.

    I went through an array of tests, blood work, pee test, EKG and a cat-scan and they said I was healthy as an ox, however I had all the symptoms of Vertigo. They basically prescribed me Adivert, which is an antihistamine to help with the motion sickness and said if it don't go away in 3-7 days to come back or visit my family doctor (Who I haven't seen in 14 years.) to get a check-up and he might recommend you to a neurologist, which I was always under the impression they just go by cat-scans, which I have already had....

    What I am scared of as I have read a few blogs on this it may become worse and people have to depend on Adivert or knock-off prescription to get by day to day as it is always with them. I hope I am not one of those people, but to be honest I seem to have a mild case compared to some, but just wondering if anyone else has this and how to deal with it in case it never leaves.

    Think it might be related to me losing weight? I know it is fluid in your inner-ear and could break of crystals and make your equilibrium all screwy, which I have pretty bad right now. Might be related to all those years listening to my competitive stereo systems for years with no hearing protection like a ignoramus!

    Thanks for reading and if you do have it, I know what you are going through and best of luck to you as well...

    My ex had vertigo. She had a spell with it that lasted a couple weeks or so and then again on and off but not as severe. If I remember right they thought maybe it was also caused buy some sort of inner ear infection that she couldn't feel for some reason but her ears would drain water often.

    Sorry for hacking this post up. She had so many dam mental and physical problems its hard to keep it straight. But I do feel sorry for people that have vertigo. It can come and go at anytime and when it did come it usually messed up the rest of her day.

    Yeah it is due to an inner-ear infection you really don't feel, well sometimes you do, sometimes you do not...me, you would never know I had it unless you paid attention to how I am walking.

    It sucks, let me tell you what. Thanks for the response.

    My wife had it about 10 years ago. Scariest thing yet. 6:30am she was dressed and ready to drive to work..6:45am she was laying on the couch telling me that the room was spinning in circles and she couldn't stand up. I carried her to the car while she was vomiting and off we went to the emergency room.

    Full battery of tests and Vertigo was diagnosed. She spent the next three weeks in bed..crawling on her hands and knees to the toilet and shower. She gradually improved but it took months. She basically had to learn to walk again. They described it as what a baby goes through to learn to balance again. A simple inner ear infection and your inner gyroscope is destroyed. And yes, it can happen that fast!

    My wife still won't do things that spin her around and she doesn't have very good balance anymore either. She won't go out in my boat unless the water is flat calm. Bending over and shaking her head will make her dizzy.

    Wow man, she must had a very extreme case of it. I have a mild case......well at least compared to your wifes anyway. I couldn't imagine being bed ridden for 3 weeks and having to crawl everywhere. You have to what you have to do, but your wife is very strong!

    I actually went to work the next day and people thought I was nuts! I honestly belive I am a mild case, which still sucks and reminds me how bad it "could" have been.

    Mine has been going on 6 days now. I really need to make an appointment with my family doc to get rechecked and see what else if anything can be done.

    Indeed, it sucks!

    Just got to wait it out and take what a Dx gives you.

    It took me a few days where I could sit up and move without vomiting and a couple more weeks of being functional but 'off' before I was really through it.

    It was on my birthday, too. One minute I was looking down at the ground, then snapped upwards to see a plane going overhead and BOOM! vomiting and cold sweats 3 minutes later. It was nuts how quickly it came on.
    My story: 204 lbs --> 138 lbs. --> Currently on my way back up!

    Starting Strength Status (8.20.15)

    Squat (3x5) - 245 lbs.
    Military Press (3x5) - 95 lbs.
    Deadlift - 240 lbs.
    Bench - 150 lbs.
    Power Clean - TBD

    I had a mild case after my second kid was born. I was working + going to school + doing night time feeds. Lack of sleep caused mine. Just got spells of it every day for a few weeks. Eventually cleared up. Sleep... you reaally need it.

    I doubt this is the case for those that posted here but my mom had vertigo and hers was from low iron levels. I figured id post this in case it helps anyone.
    Why do I do this weightlifting thing for the last 32 years with all its ups and downs life has handed me? Because each time I came back stronger. NEVER GIVE UP. Gym life is about more than muscles getting bigger and weights going up. Its wisdom discipline dedication humility you name it.

    Something else just came to mind but I guess dehydration could also cause this so keeping fluid levels up could at least help.

    Had a terrible incident of vertigo myself just these past couple of days. It started very mild in the evening with signs of slowness whenever I turned my head. Oh boy, in the morning I couldn't even raise my head of a pillow, everything was spinning in my eyes, reminded me how I felt when I had a surgery and anesthesia was wearing off. I had to take sick day at work. I was quickly to blame coq10 pills I just recently started to take to "improve" cellular energy. But then I realized I also started to take creatine monohydrate recently and was thinking to myself it could not be it since everyone knows creatine has been around since ever and it's well studied and safe and bla bla bla. Also I've been taking it for a week or 2 at that time in doses less than 1 scoop a day (5g). But after thorough web search I found a thread or two with people describing same symptoms when taking creatine. I was surprised how little info there is about this issue since vertigo can f** you up for days and even weeks and affecting every aspect of your life. It's been almost a week since I stopped taking creatine and I'm still very dizzy when walking on the street and let me tell you it's no fun to walk in Times Square where I work with dozens of people around me on the side walk. Jokes aside I'm hoping to get my balance back soon and that I didn't cause any permanent damage to my health.
