Dizzy! @_@ - March 24th 2009, 05:20 PM

I don't know what's wrong with me...sometimes when I'm sleeping, going to sleep, and it's happened once or twice when I've been awake;
I'll get very dizzy...and not just the normal kind of dizzy where the room is barely spinning and you feel a bit light headed.
I'm talking about where I wake up and the room is going 100 miles an hour, I feel like I have to throw up, I can't focus my eyes on any one spot, and I end up doing a face-plant into the pillow in an attempt to make it stop.
It's horrible, and it's kind of scary.
I don't know what's wrong.
It hasn't happened to me in quite some time, but sometimes it will happen twice a week, once a month...It jumps around a lot. There isn't much of a pattern to it.
I just want it to never happen again. x.x;
It's happened before when I had a friend spending the night, and I went to stand up to get some water to see if it would make it go away, but I couldn't really see because the room was spinning, and I fell into my dresser and stumbled around. ):

Has anyone else experienced this, or might have any idea what it could be?

Thanks in advance.

Does the dizziness just happen at night when you're sleepy? It could be a sleep-related illness but i'm no medical professional. If it happens during the day too; you gotta make sure you're hydrated! Drink plenty of water and get enough nutrition as it could be your body's way of telling you that you are not getting enough fuel.

Please make a visit to your doctor as we can only assume things here; therefore in order to resolve your issue you will need to have an examination and probably some blood tests and other such tests carried out.

Take care & I hope everything goes okay!

Well you should see a doctor if your dizziness is;
*unexplained, severe, persistant and recurrent
*you also have ringing in your ears or loss of hearing
*your visions is worsened or you get blurred vision
*you have a severe headache

Ways to help dizziness;
If you're dizzy, move slowly and avoid fast or sharp movements as this will make it worse.
Check your medications. Are there any prescription medications that you are on which could be causing it?
Reduce the amount of salt in your diet.
Deep breathing and relaxation exercises.
Drink plent of water, you could be dehydrated.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
