Had to make a trip to the doctor’s yesterday morning. I HAD planned to clean the flat, but …..best laid plans and all that! The reason was simple enough. The night before, when I came to lay my head down on the pillow, the room spun around and around me. I hadn’t even the excuse of drinking a few too many glasses of wine either.
When morning arrived and I tried to get up I thought I was going to have to yell at the top of my head for K to come and help me it was so bad. Either that or I was going to have to remain laid there in bed. Once upright it went away as long as I didn’t move my head too quickly or bent down to do anything.
Hmm. I recalled that I had suffered this particular problem before. Years ago after a particularly bad cold. Rang up the surgery and then sauntered down for my appointment. Vertigo. Inner ear or something. “Don’t move too quickly. Take these tablets three times a day.”
More tablets. I am now taking a total of seven different tablets every day. If I did move quickly, I’m certain you’d hear me rattle. SEVEN Tablets a day! This from a woman who until four years ago didn’t take any! I have discovered through trial and error, that if I lay down facing left I don’t experience the dizzy feeling. It only occurs if I lay down facing right. Cockeyed and lopsided vertigo. Could only happen to me.
