What is Vertigo?

Vertigo is a disease, which occurs due to the patient having problems in the posterior semicircular canals of the inner ear-medically known as the vestibular labyrinth area of the ear. Patients suffering from vertigo will experience an abnormal sensation that causes them to feel as though their surrounding environment is continuously spinning, whirling or moving. As a result of this, the vertigo patient suffers from loss of balance or a sensation of nausea that may grow acute.

Im currently 26 years old. Ive had to vertigo since i was 3 years old. Throughout the years i had a few bad spells but the last 4 months ive had vertigo from the time i wake up to the time i go asleep. Im at my wits end with this fucking disease[forgive my language]. It's gotten so bad ive even had the thoughts of if it gets too bad i can always kill myself. Ive started medication for it but i don't think its working. I don't know what to do anymore. Anyone here know of a good medication?

I get frequent attacks of Vertigo and when it happens I take Vertin 16mg for relief. Should I take it daily life long? I am 83yrs old.


Whoever wrote these steps has obviously never had to deal with real vertigo! I had a horrible episode and finally got immediate relief from Dr. Carol Foster's simple exercise treatment done at home. She has a YouTube video [3 min.] which shows you how and explains what is happening to you. "How To Treat Vertigo" by Dr. Carol Foster. It will absolutely save you.
