Vertigo after eye test

Had my eyes tested on Saturday and then yesterday had a horrible sensation like I was going to fall over if there was nothing to my left to balance me

I went to a football match and the falling sensation made me very panicky. It was crowded and I kept bumping into people getting to my seat. I felt that anyone looking at me would think I was drunk or something and that made me anxious so I felt even worse!

I still have same feeling today but I've just tried Epley manoeuvre to see if that helps.

Just wondering if I need to see doctor or if it will right itself?

I would go to your GP, esp. if I could get a short notice appt. I can't quite imagine how/why an eye test would have this side effect, so I think you should rule out other causes.

Thanks Perspica. Feel much better now but think I'll visit doc anyway just to be safe.
