@bgmike666,
I often wonder if all the mobile phone/cellphones and aerial masts around nowadays have something to do with triggering dizziness or even epilepsy.

I've had similar experiences and I don't know if this will help anyone here but it's helped me. I suddenly noticed that every time I'd lay down in bed, I'd get dizzy. If I laid still I was fine but when I would roll over, I'd feel dizzy again. Of course I was worried about it, and I told my chiropractor and he was not concerned at all about it. I can't remember exactly what he said word for word, (it's been a while) but essentially he said it had to do with a nerve in my neck that affects the inner ear. He adjusted my neck and it went away as suddenly as it came. Thank God! I hope maybe this advice will apply to some of you on here that are suffering with the dizziness. I know it's a terrible feeling. Sad

I remember some years ago I used to take multi-vitamin pills containing iron just to make sure my body wasn't missing out on any essential vits, but I then had a few dizzy spells.
I heard that too much iron can cause dizziness, so I stopped taking them.

Another thing- on a long summers bike ride I kept sipping from my water bottle and felt a bit dizzy. I found out later that too much fluid in the body can trigger dizziness, so I cut right down after that.

One more thing- I was once concentrating hard on my computer screen while playing a strategy game and was hit by a dizzy spell, so after that I've always kept the brightness and contrast turned down a bit.

I have also been having this same problem. JUST when trying to sleep. Vertigo that wakes me up and can last (in episodes) untill 5 am. I think it might be an anxiety thing though because after experimenting I have found a few things that have helped .. 1. Melatonin (1 capsule) when I first got woken up by it - it subsided immediatly and I was fast asleep. 2. A huge glass of water and sleeping on my back with my head raised I was able to sleep without expiriencing anymore symptoms. Also I have yet to try gravol but I'm sure it would also work. But like you all of the doctors are stumped so maybe dehydration or anxiety. I feel your pain though it makes for some very long miserable nights. Please let me know if you have found any updates on this
Thanks!

Hi, I have been suffering from Vertigo for approximately 8 years now! From ear specialist in Boston to Neurological testing in New York! They all basically say the same thing...you just have vertigo and must live with it. basically I work with the symptoms. Mornings are horrendous. I was a healthy athlete up until this debilitating illness took away my life. If anyone has any way of dealing with symptoms, info would be most appreciated.Has anyone tried a sleeping wedge under their mattress? I am at the point of sleeping standing up...lol! Honestly if it would help...I'm in. Thanks for listening. Wendy

Dizziness is a general term and can mean different things to different people in different situations. This is usually seen in people who already suffer from vertigo and BPPV. Meniere's disease is actually a disorder of the inner ear, caused by the collection of excess moisture. In this case it is also accompanied by dizziness, hearing loss, roaring in the ears, and tinnitus or ringing high in both ears.

This sounds very much like what is happening to me. I am 58 years old and very active for my age. My life was full of bumps and bruises due to years of extreme sports from bull riding, water skiing and 10 years of motocross racing.
During that time I had several blows to the head and now suffer from neck injuries. Two years ago I awoke in the night suffering from extreme dizziness with the inability to even sit up in bed. I was dreaming I was lying face up at the bottom of a life boat in rough seas. Upon awaking, the room was spinning very fast and I had the feeling of falling. The symptoms slowly subsided, however, I was left dizzy and unable to walk by myself for several days. For months I was unable to sleep in a bed relying on a recliner to keep my head above my body in some what of an upright position. I found my self unable to lie on my back from that day forward without becoming dizzy. After several months I seemed to recover and go back to my old self. Only to have the same thing to recur at a more debilitating state. This time I even lost my eyesight completely for several seconds. It took me roughly a year to completely recover having several relapses during the year. And always happening while on my back. I purchased a power adjustable bed so I could sleep in an inclined position. This helped, however, the braver I got lowering the bed down to almost a flat position and sleeping on my side finally caught up with me this week. I rolled over from my safe left side on to my right side and bingo! Shake Town!
So WTF? The doctors tell us what causes the dizziness but they don't tell us why the little crystals get dialoged from there normal spot in the first place! So now I am back to sleeping like a horse in a stall (standing upright) with little hope for the future. Does anyone have a silver bullet?

@Papallo ,
Wendy,
I have found that a adjustable bed with a high quality memory foam mattress can reduce the frequency of the (what I call ) attacks. I jack up the head end of the bed to get my head above the rest of my body. The bed is kind of expensive but it was worth the expense. Also when I have an attack,I wear a neck brace for a few days. It helps to remind me not to make sudden moves that aggravate the recovery. Something that no one is discussing is the depression that is associated with this horrible condition. At one time I almost had to close my business because I was unable to work.
Good luck
Steve

@machinist,
Have you been to specialists? As in vascular. I don't want to alarm you, but you might want to push your primary care physician to refer you to one.

@jespah,
Went to an en&t when this first started. The tests that they wanted to put me through sounded worse than the symptoms. I didn't think I could endure them. Most of the information I have compiled is from other suffers. In the past I suffered from a-fib. I had an ablation several years back. I have had ultrasounds done on my arteries and they were clear as a bell. My mother died of a brain aneurysm. I have had high blood pressure from as early as 18.
Is there a reason you are thinking vascular?

@machinist,
Please understand I am no doctor, and giving medical advice is against the Terms of Service anyway. I do know when my father was having these sorts of symptoms, he ended up getting carotid artery bypass surgery from, yes, a vascular surgeon. They did find blockages. It turned out my father had different issues (it's a sleep disorder with him, it turns out) but the vascular surgeon explained that with a lot of women who have strokes, it can happen in the shampoo chair at a salon. That is, they have blockages at the backs of their carotid arteries (e. g. in the neck), and the act of bending their heads back cuts off the small passageway they have left.

I am not saying you have this. Again, to clarify, this is not intended to be medical advice. It just seems that if you are having issues when your head is back, someone with knowledge of veins and arteries should probably be checking that area to see if you are at risk.

@jespah,
Good advise! I was with my wife a year ago in the hospital. She was getting a procedure and needed a biopsy. While I was in the waiting room I was watching a TV high up on the wall from a chair. In order to see the TV I had to tilt my head up in a very comfortable position for me. I have very limited range of motion in my neck. after several minutes of watching the TV I passed out. Yes. Right in the room where my wife was waiting in a hospital bed for her procedure. Suddenly I became the patient. I had a MRI done on my neck area and the doctor that read the MRI never indicated that there was a problem. His reply was that I had a lot of bone calcification, a compressed disk and arthritis. His recommendation was physical therapy. Maybe I should get a second look!
Thanks
Steve

Any doctor worth his or her salt will be happy to refer you to a specialist or for a second opinion. Good luck, Steve!

Hi, I think you don't need to worry about that because I have experienced the same condition just like yours. It's all right.

@maxpower hd,
It sounds like you might be experiencing some inner ear problems, or some bouts of vertigo. I experienced the same years ago. After trying multiple medications that solved the problem but made me groggy, I found Divertigo. its an essential oil that helps with dizziness. worth a shot!

I have had nighttime vertigo episodes for a year and a half. I'm awakened by the room spinning. Then nausea and vomiting. The next day I can't function. Doctors have been unable to diagnose. I've taken meclizine & migraine meds but that's after the episode. I thought it was a reaction to certain foods/drinks so ruled them out & episodes occurred again. I can't find a pattern! I've had stress tests, CT scans, seen ENT and nothing.
Next step is seeing a neurologist. I'm 54 & nobody in my family has had any similar problems.
