  7. Oh wow! It makes me dizzy just to look at it. I have known people who have experienced vertigo and it is not fun. They did eventually recover from it though and I hope you will soon too.

  10. I suffered this a few years ago. A friend suggested that it might be BPPV (among other things). I searched on YouTube for a test for it. Found several, tried the maneuver and within two minutes I knew I had it in my left ear. Other videos demonstrated how to get relief from it... basically the same maneuver but slower. But if I would look straight up, it would return. Fortunately this only lasted a couple of months and it hasn't come back. Sorry if you're still suffering from it. It was no fun. Anyway, your photos do the symptoms justice!

  15. I can't look at the photos, only squint. I read the words prior to the photos actually opening and knew that I couldn't really look. I have no desire to deal with motion sickness or vertigo right now--I'm not wearing my acupressure bracelets which have proven to be a great aid for me. I hope you are no longer dealing with this rotten-to-the-core condition.

  18. I've had bouts of vertigo before and it's such a terrible feeling. Hope things improve for you soon.

  19. A good attempt at explaining the symptoms of BPPV, Kate. I hope that when you go to the neuologists at the Mayo, they can confirm the BPPV, or set further investigations in motion, oops .. poor choice of word..

    I tried to explain what I experienced in a post once http://jstorry.blogspot.com.au/search/label/Bilateral%20Vestibulopathy
