I need any input for my head. The vertigo is in a rampaging my world apart... Even if I take in a breath to breathe my head fills full of static spinning. Especially if I turn my head to the left or the right. Arrrgggg help me. I've nausea meds but nothing helps.

Brain so foggy I can't even think clearly w/o major dizziness. I'm getting desperate for relief.
I'm will to go this far [toilet]

Have you been evaluated for BPPV? A simple in-office procedure can relieve it if done properly.

I'm out of brain... What is BPPV? Is it Blood Pressure??

Acupuncture helped me the most with it. Also, I haven't had an episode since treating for parasites. If only people knew about parasites.

Thank you thank you are you speaking of a specific type of parasite?

Benign Positional (some other P) Vertigo.

I had it a couple of years ago. I went to an audiologist who diagnosed and treated it. She taught me some easy exercises and it went away.

Of course, who knows which infection was actually the cause. But the exercises gave me relief.

Some meds for nausea can cause dizziness and vertigo. What helps both with nausea and with ears / balance:

LIVER & KIDNEY SUPPORT & and several HERXHEIMER support links, too. This kind of support is essential to help all ear & balance issues, too.

A note in set above about how both acetaminophen and ibuprofen can damage liver / kidneys. Both also can damage the ear & balance system.;f=1;t=065801

Annie, I treated for parasites in a broad spectrum manner (humaworm, salt/c, etc, and eventually parasite meds). There is a wonderful thread here called THE PARASITE WARRIOR'S THREAD chocked full of info.

The whole parasite thing is sort of like lyme. People have to be open to consider the possibility that they have them, or they won't treat. Yet it was stated at last year's ILADS conference that parasites are THE number one co infection. Go figure. It's a huge missing link.

Love to all that remain long past their own death date. That was an ironic joke. Sometimes they're funnier.

Agree with Catgirl. Check out the PARASITE WARRIORS SUPPPORT THREAD. It has been the missing link for many. Google parasite symptoms.

I have dealt with vertigo off and on for years. It's possible it's benign vertigo(as mentioned above). However, mine is not.

Here are some possible remedies I have used: sea bands (worn on wrists) put pressure on a pressure point on the wrist. People wear them when they go on cruises. You get them at a drug store. Worn the right way they can be quite effective. Anti-vert (meclizine) available over the counter at drugstore for motion sickness. Vertigo Heel (homeopathic) ordered over the Internet, fairly effective, even more so than meclizine. Benadryl (but not recommended to go this route for long). I also take anti nausea drug called Zofran when needed.

We're all different. These are what has helped me. You could start with sea bands (no drugs!) to see if that helps.

Good luck! Vertigo can be miserable, but there are aids to help.
