@shelly97457,
This is just a passing thought but why not see a doctor? Perhaps you might consider this could be a neurolgical problem and see a specialist. I know that I would if it were me.

@Dadsrunt,
Thank you for this discription! This is exactly what I feel, the whirling feeling for several seconds, then the "batting" back and forth for several seconds. Only mine happens while I am standing, sitting, you name it! All I have to do is turn my head. Also my fingers are getting numb when this happens (just started noticing this today). So glad to not feel alone anymore!

Be aware that Dadsrunt made that post about 2.5 yrs ago (and only for that one post). They're most likely no longer visiting the site.

@Ragman,
Thanks for responding, and I would if I had insurance. The long story short, the docs that will see me since I don't have insurance don't seem to know much (community centers), and the other docs won't see me even if I pay cash. Not trying to complain, just wanting to find an "easy" answer I guess!! I know my health is important, however, so eventually I will if it continues this bad. Actually, I am having surgery on my jaw in a couple of months (BAD impacted wisdom tooth, it is sticking out the bottom of my jaw about 1/2", need bone grafting, plate and all), and that is going to set me back a pretty...make that knock-out-gorgeous!!...penny! I am actually wondering if it could somehow be related...this tooth is really close (if not touching) the nerve in my jaw...maybe I will kill two birds with one stone! Well...I can hope!

@shelly97457,
If the symptoms are coming from your neck, it might not be simply a minor inconvenience. IMO, you need to have an MRI of your neck, to rule out any problems with your cervical spine.

Take it from someone who has, "been there, done that!"

@dizzydeb,
Then it's all good ?

Perhaps it's time to get an appointment soon.

If you're waiting for a reply from that poster, you might want to take note of the timestamp of the post. SamC98 has been off the site for 3 years.

@maxpower hd,
I have this problem as well. It started about 2 years ago, when early one morning I woke up because I had horrible vertigo. Though, instead of the traditional vertigo where it feels like I'm spinning around, I felt like my head was shaking back and forth very quickly. It went on for about 2 months, and literally every time I laid down and closed my eyes, the vertigo would happen again. Though, when I opened my eyes, it would go away. I'd occasionally feel numb in my arms from my elbows to the tips of my fingers in both hands.
Over time, the problem has died down a little bit, but happens maybe once a week. I've actually gone to doctors several times. I was tested for everything from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo to being prescribed anti depressants. The ENT doctor I went to see told me it was probably caused by eating too much salty foods. But when I cut back on salt, the problem was as bad as ever. I'm a young female, 23 years of age. And I'm getting to the point where I just give up on seeing a doctor, because out of literally the 10 different doctors I've gone to see, none of them seem to know what it is, or how to treat it. So, they give me motion sickness medicine and send me on my way.

@Executiveroahen,
Hi I used to get migraines and vertigo. It turned out to be a food intolerance to salicylates. See my whole story on sickfromsalicylates.com good luck, joan

I get this hard rush of dizziness when asleep at nite. It hits hard, and my head spins for a few minutes. I jump up fast and scream for my fiance. My mom has spells where she passes out completely for about 10 mins, them she comes around. My grandma had the same. My brother who passed away over a yr ago was having spells where he passed out and his pressure would drop. I took my bp after the spell and it was low. As im typing, im slightly dizzy. Mine usually happen at nite late. I go to my doctor sept 21st 2012. If i find anything out i will definitely let u know. I hate this because im scared to drive.

@maxpower hd,
if you are taking any supplements or pills before you go to bed this could occur. otherwise you should consult a doctor

@cubsfan1389,
I looked into this years ago as I often wake up in the night with the room spinning round. A doctor said it was a form of infantile vertigo ( it had a much longer medical name ) and he was surprised I was still getting the problem aged 40 something. I am now 61 and have just had a bad night with dizziness.

To avoid dizziness when waking up from sleeping, try moving slowly, . Before getting up, breathe deeply for some minutes. If the issue happens when you get up from sleeping, try lying with the head of your bed slightly raised.

@Miller,
Thank you Miller; I have just had my first episode this morning when I was on my right hand side in bed extreme dizziness and uncontrolled rappid eye movement followed by mild nausea. Recently I had an ear infection in my left ear which seems to have cleared up of it's own accord. From what I have read here sounds like an inner ear infection which I had better get checked out.

My aunt had a similar condition because of her ear and also she took stress of something. But i don't suggest only ENT for you, I think you should consult a good physician/neurosurgeon so he could find the root of your problem.

@maxpower hd,
I have the same thing happen to me but just a little more extreme. Since I was a kid I would be sleeping and my Dreams would start to spin, I would wake myself up and everything would spin I would have to stay still and stay awake or it would just happen again, I feel sick for days afterwards, would happen about once a year but I seems to be happening more often, the doctors don't know what's wrong, oh and these dizzy spells are always followed by a panic attack.

I too suffer with this real annoying problem. When i go to bed at night I'm fine, But while sleeping and i turn over i get this real sudden burst of dizziness in which this wakes me fully up. Sometimes i yell out as well as it is rather full-on. Also while having a bath if i lay straight back and put my head under water it feels as those everything is closing in and the dizzy-ness gets really bad, Some days i get a feeling off passing out and become very dizzy. I have never suffered anything like this before, except when i had an ear infection years ago and i had slight vertigo. Its got to the point now that this dizzie-ness is driving me nuts. And the doctors can never find anything.
