room spinning

Postby hazely » Sun May 11, 2014 8:55 am

Morning fellow fibro suffers I hope you are feeling as well as can be today.
I have a question for you has anyone experienced thus symptom as it's a new one for me.

During the night I kept on waking up. Which is nothing new, but then when i turned over to try to get comfy and get back to sleep the room began to spin and i felt sick. It was like being drunk. This happened several times, when i finally got up i fell back on the bed due to room spinning and when i went to the toilet i fell and sat on the bath due to room spinning.

i have fibro and on several meds but no different meds for last two months, so a bit confused and scared if it will continue. Happened last night for first time.

Have you ever suffered with vertigo? Talk to the doc or nurse and let them check your blood pressure etc.

This can be associated with FM Hazel, but can also be a sign of other issues such as an ear infection or other inner ear problems. It does need checking out so I would suggest that you arrange to see someone.

It's something that has affected me from pretty much day one, and is thought to be linked to migraines in my case. If there is another cause behind what you are experiencing, hopefully it will be something that can be sorted easily as I know too well how awful it makes you feel :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:

I have a condition called BPPV which is a form of vertigo, but a symptom of it is the room spinning/nauseous feeling when you are lying down and change position.
When mine flares up, I see a specialist nurse at audiology clinic, and she does a manoeuvre that usually clears it. It is something to do with particles in the inner ear becoming loose. Xxx

Make some notes about how you are being affected Hazel, as well as any thoughts on what might be causing you the problems. Take it with you when you get your appt as it can all help with explaining how things are affecting you.

BPPV can affect you lying down our upright, and tends to happen when you turn your head a particular way xxx

I too have tremendous dizzy spells, to the point of losing hearing and having to catch myself against something so I don't fall face first into something, or more embarrassingly, someone:) Any time, night or day this happens. Just a new and fun symptom I guess..xxx

*edit* I have a fun new little symptom....I stand talking to someone and I suddenly fall backwards!!! The shock on their faces when I go down. I feel bad for them, embarrassed for me, and my bo**om and pride is often stinging.

Hi all. I can't believe this, I have been having dizziness in one way or another for the last 12 months. My doctor put is down to stress (mum passed away) but it seems to come and go with me. I had it for a few weeks then it stopped and came back after a while, this has been off and on since last year. I was given something to stop the nausea but we couldn't cure it.

It is dangerous though, it has happened to me when driving, or when I turn over in bed, standing up or sitting down but the main thing for me it that it happens when I don't move at all, like just now typing this, just looking at my laptop typing....anyone with anything like this??

It can only be another symptom of the Fibro magic!!!! Another one to add to the list of non explained symptoms.

Any idea's??

Are you able to not drive til you get better? When I had labrynthitis I was advised not to drive. It just isnt safe for you or other people x

I often feel like the room is spinning, doesn't matter the time of day or night, just comes over me randomly and I have to have a lay down
