Re: Medical question anyone suffered vertigo?
Sorry to hear this, but it sounds all too familiar. I had Labrynthitis for the first time last year. The first time, I was actually sick. After that, I realised when it was coming on and took it a bit easier. I ended up being able to go to work, albeit sometimes looking like a drunk walking down the road.
I was actually advised that driving a car is quite good for you, because you look a long way ahead of you and that helps you keep your balance. Obviously in a car there is no risk of falling over. Riding a motorbike is completely different.
I found the worst symptoms went away quite quickly but I would not have been able to ride a bike for several days. I am frantically looking round for some wood to touch here, but I have not had it for some time despite having similar feelings in my ear that pre-empted the three attacks I had.
My attacks often followed either a full-blown ear infection or at least rumblings of one, so I have avoided things like swimming.
