I get a numbness on the left side of my head right after I move, then I have severe vertigo attack, spinning is like the worst bed spins you have ever had when drunk. Completely disorienting. Lasts 2 minutes. I am exhausted after, can sleep for 10 hours easy, often nauseous, occasionally vomit. Then my balance would be off for days. Had one every 2 weeks for a year until I started treating with desipramine. Rarely feel like I am going to spin and can control the spin better if I do. 7/19/2012 at 11:10 PM

Thankfully this is a mild symptom for me because the feeling of spinning out of control and not being able to tell up from down is so frightening. The nausea that always comes with it is just horrible. I used to have Menier's Disease and I have developed a true aversion to vertigo.5/5/2012 at 06:20 AM
