I have had vertigo for four days. Fortunately the mini spins, not the continuous full blown episodes. Last night I thought I was about to begin a full blown episode when the mini spin lasted about 10 minutes. (I didn’t time it, because I can’t see easily.)

Vertigo is the sensation of spinning. For me the room feels like it’s moving around me, but others feel like they are moving. Indeed if I close my eyes, the inside of my head appears to be spinning. (Whatever my minds eye sees.) I rarely close my eyes, because it makes me nauseous.

The good thing about the mini spins is that they’re brief. The bad is that they’re unpredictable and in multiples. I can sit in my recliner to watch tv, but I can’t go out to walk.

So far I haven’t had any this morning. Since the last four days I have been having them during the night and upon waking, I am taking that as a good sign.

I think the emotional stress I’ve been under is responsible for this recent flare. Stress and lights are my biggest triggers.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
