Vertigo is a very nasty thing to have. I was diagnosed with it a few years back. I woke up in the night and when I opened my eyes the room went completely upside down.
My husband took me to the emergency room. I was given medication to be followed up by a specialist. The specialist spoke with me and we narrowed down the list of why this was happening. The final verdict was being misdiagnosed when I had a sinus infection. It evidently was a viral infection instead and by not treating it properly I will now have bouts of vertigo for the rest of my life. The specialist did recommend certain exercises to help me and they do work most of the time along with medication.
