I have been diagnosed with the positional type vertigo for about 12 yrs. So I always sleep propped up on numerous pillows and can't sleep on my right side. I have also had severe neck pain for about 5 yrs. I also get that the spinning during sleep. Sometimes just as I'm drifting off and sometimes throughout the night. Usually when I just wake up and open my eyes, it will stop. Everytime I ask a doctor about the vertigo and the sleep cycle, they just say "hmmm, interesting". It def. seems related to sleep itself. My position doesn't change.

Labyrinthitis
A prominent and debilitating symptom of labyrinthitis is acute vertigo
The vestibular system is a set of sensory inputs consisting of three semicircular canals, sensing changes in rotational motion, and the otoliths, sensing changes in linear motion. The brain combines visual cues with sensory input from the vestibular system to determine adjustments required to retain balance. When working properly, the vestibular system also relays information on head movement to the eye muscle, forming the vestibulo-ocular reflex, in order to retain continuous visual focus during motion. When the vestibular system is affected by labyrinthitis, rapid, undesired eye motion (nystagmus), often results from the improper indication of rotational motion. Nausea, anxiety, and a general ill feeling are common due to the distorted balance signals that the brain receives from the inner ear.

This can also be brought on by pressure changes such as those experienced while flying or scuba diving

@olivia224,
The other morning I was woken up from sleep because I became so dizzy. I was in the middle of a dream but was not dizzy in the dream. The dizziness woke me from the dream.It felt like my eyes were moving back and fourth and I could not control it. For the rest of the day I was dizzy and sick to my stomach and got a headache which I do not get very often. I read on line that dizziness is rarely a sign of anything serious but it sure seemed serious to me.

OMG Oliva,

I sort of have the same thing. I've had this before but it was momentary, like a realy quick rushing feeling to my head.

But today was strange. When I stand up and then I bend my neck forward towards the floor, if I leave it there for a few seconds, I get this rush/dizzy like feeling. When I bring my head back up I feel OK. Also, when I bring bend my neck towards the ceiling for a few seconds, I get the same feeling.

I feel so much tension around the base of my neck and sholders. I don't have any ear pain but I did have some fluttering in one ear a few nights ago.

Hope to hear from you and anyone else.

Ross
