I have spent the past several days battling vertigo. I cannot drive and exercising is hit or miss as is eating. I went to the doctor on Monday and afterward wish I hadn't because she basically told me to continue what I was doing and wait it out. Oh, and she said if it isn't gone by Thursday I am supposed to call back and she will start me on physical therapy. Seriously!?! I honestly think it is due to sinusitis and that antibiotics would get rid of it. I had something similar 5 years ago and after going through a huge rigmarole of vestibular testing and an MRI they discovered sinusitis. Would have been a heck of a lot cheaper had they just tried antibiotics first.
I must admit as annoying and frustrating as this is I have certainly been blessed. My sweet sister came down on Monday to be my chauffeur and babysitter, my hubby was super helpful in tidying up the house Monday night so it wasn't a total disaster and my sister-in-law called and insisted on bringing in dinner for my family tonight. I don't know how I would be doing without all the help that is for sure.
Anyone else ever had vertigo? How did you get rid of it?
