Patient Comments: Vertigo - Symptoms

Do you experience nausea, vomiting, or other symptoms with your vertigo?

Comment from: louise, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 04

The nausea and dizziness with my vertigo is unbelievable. Not being to walk to the toilet but having to crawl at times or even being physical helped is so embarrassing. Lying down and getting up takes up to 10 minutes and then trying to get to another room is time consuming. It just hits you like a bomb with no real warning signs beforehand. People around you think that you are drunk because it looks the same as a drunk person not being able to control their movements!
