.....getting dizzy even when just lying in bed. or when i get something from a high shelf. or turn head too fast.

am being investigated for gallbladder probs...and i have alot of 'low thyroid' symptoms...but bloodtests are ok...

ear infection???

labyrithitis? Menieres?
Add them to the list to discuss with your GP...and how is your blood pressure?

Sounds like labyrinthitis. If you close your eyes, does it feel like you're doing flips? If so, probably labyrinthitis. Often comes on after a cold. Unless you're puking and unable to get out of bed, the drugs are worse than the symptoms (from what I know).

Sympathies, though, labyrinthitis sucks. Coffee makes it worse, from what I've been told (maybe all caffeine?).

Labyrinthitis or the onset of vertigo.

My mum is on the borderline for low thyroid - she has vertigo. Her blood tests almost always come back fine but the GP prescribed a low dosage of the drugs which seems to have helped with the vertigo symptoms as well.

thanks to you all...best way i can describe it is when i get in bed- lie down...for about a minute or so i fel dizzy...like had too much alcohol...then it settles..till i turn over etc.

bloodpressure is low...always has been...even when pregnant..and in the past awawre got dizzy if stood up too fast...but this fels dfifferent...even now tilting my head to type makes me feel 'strange'.

do feel nauseaos...have had more tinitus lately...and last month had a frequent 'tingly' feeling on left side of head.

i have had labrynth since 2002, constantly feeling drunk!!!
your symptoms do sound similar....am suprised you gp has not suggested it

is the tingly feeling near the surface of your scalp

chapsmum Thu 18-May-06 10:50:36

buccastem from the chemist is an antisickness tablet whick is good for vertigo. perhaps it would help till you get to the drs.

MrsEff Thu 18-May-06 11:02:57

yes the tingling was at the top of my scalp....it stopped last week...then satuday morning was the first time i felt this dizzyness in bed....for months i have felt off balance...and have had several conversations with my doctor about my ears etc... but not about this drunken dizziness.

i have my gallbladder ultrasound on 25th , thyroid bloodtest on 31st... so plan to talk to her then. obviously..if gets worse will go sooner...but to be honest...i am so fed up of being sent home with a pat on the back...that i am reluctent to go...as i feel so yuck at the moment...and could not stand to be told'you're fine.'

i felt exactly the same and still do.... all tests coming back clear/gp saying everything is fine, but you know when your not on top form.

just try and relax as much as possible.

i was sent to a balance clinic rather than ENT and put through lots of movement tests.

thinking of you
