Have you ever had vertigo?
October 13, 2021 12:27pm CST
I woke up this morning (always a good thing!) and when I sat up, the room was spinning so fast I thought I might fall. Since I tend to fall often, I sat there, then moved very slowly. I made it to the couch and my husband brought me some motion sickness medicine. He actually cooked breakfast, lol, but I only ate half a slice of plain toast. Not only is everything flying round and round, but I'm so nauseous. The medicine made me sleepy, but I learned I dare not lie down. It's been 5 hours and I took a second pill earlier. I think maybe it's just a little better, but I'm being extremely careful if I have to get up. This vertigo was from one small pill I took last night. It was an Omega 3 with CoQ10 and was only half a dose. It's supposed to help high triglycerides. I hope to get a refund from Amazon, but I'll have to just keep working on my triglycerides with diet and exercise. Have you ever had vertigo? And helpful hints other than "don't take those pills again"?

Yes, I've had something like that happen once. I was waking up from my afternoon nap in the break room at work and the room was spinning so fast I had to grab the table to keep from falling out of the chair. Someone grabbed one of management for me and they told me to keep my head down until the spinning stopped. I had to keep hold of the table. Every time I turned it loose I started to slide out of the chair again. After two hours I finally tried to stand up and fell on the floor. Management took me home. I went to bed and was lucky I was off for two days. I was still having problems the next day but was okay the third day. It wasn't fun. I hope you're doing better now.
