Several years ago I was diagnosed as having vertigo. I assumed the diagnosis was wrong because the dizziness stopped just after the diagnosis.
Until this year!
Several weeks ago, I was getting ready for bed when I felt nauseous again. I spent an hour or so lying on the floor in bed convinced I was going to fall somehow!
I've had a couple of mild attacks since then and today I've had a very bad attack.
Bad enough that when I tried to go upstairs; I fell! I put my left hand out in front of me and tried to grab the bannister with my right hand, but I still ended up on my belly!
I've bent back the fingers in my left hand and pulled my right shoulder. I think I must've twisted or something as my right hip hurts after sitting for a while.
Fortunately for my hip, sitting isn't something that had happened much today! After half an hour, I start to feel dizzy again so I've been lying on the sofa.
I must've suffered some sort of shock or something, because I've been asleep all evening too!
I hope this vertigo doesn't become a regular thing :-(
