My dad has this and it happens when he is sleeping or sitting in a chair. They did an MRI and checked his ears but found nothing. He said yesterday he doesn't feel right. Plus some other things are going on too, he has blood in his urine and he has been on antibotic after antibotic with that.
Well any kind of information you can give me will be appreciated. Sam

I have had some bouts of vertigo that took me to the doctor's office. He suggested motion sickness pills, Meclizine. But by the time I took them the worst of it was over. Now I keep them on hand for dizziness and nausea. They work ok.
My vertigo had me on the floor! I felt like I had just gotten off a ride that had spun me in one direction for an hour. As soon as I woke up and tried to walk, I hit the wall and slid down to the floor. Had to call for help. It lasted a couple of hours. NOT FUN!
So I really feel for your dad. I hope he finds relief very soon!

I suffered from severe vertigo for about 6 weeks, then it gradually went away. I was diagnosed with an inner ear infection. They gave me an anti-depressant. I took half the dosage they recommended and it helped a lot with the vertigo.
I hope your dad finds something that helps.

I think maybe its related to his having urine in his blood, what do you all think? He has been on an antibotic for awhile.
Well take care and have a good weekend, Sam

That is great news about the house, there is nothing quite like that "Going Home" feeling!! By the way, how is your physical therapy going?
