One of these days I need to figure out what the triggers are for getting hit with vertigo. I had a little allergy action going on, but it sure seemed minor enough. I'm moving at a pretty frantic pace these days, but I'm not feeling stressed. I can't think of anything I did differently or more strenuously. So I'm baffled. It started while we were having dinner at Brian's folks with his sisters and their families. I am pretty sure that if I could have gotten in the same declining position I do at home when I feel this coming on, it would have been done and over with in a few minutes. But I didn't want the fuss with all the family there. By the time we got home it was still in the mildly dizzy stage. I did the decline thing for about 20 minutes then tried to go to bed. As soon as I laid on my back, the room started to wrap around.
Bed spins, anyone? And I wasn't drunk. If I'm going to have bed spins, I want the pleasure of being tanked.
Another 10 minutes declining, and I tried sleep again. Found that if I was on my side, it was minimal. But even flipping over would trigger it. So sleep was erratic. Then all the nausea of the dizziness finally sent me into the bathroom around 4, but by that time, the major spinning was done. Went back to sleep and figured around 7:15 that I wasn't going to go into the office today. I don't like the feeling that the floor is squishy. And I totally don't like listing to starboard in public.
Anyway, my head is evening out, and I get to be home on a gorgeous sunny day. I have a few hours of work today, but other than that, I can relax and let the world get back to solid.
