Oh I'm sorry... it bought back terrible memories for me as I went thru the same thing. I went to a balance therapist and he did the epley maneuver, it fixed it! So far a year, I'm doing good. I wish you well!

Epley Maneuver, Peppermint Oil

I woke up this morning around 8:30 just fine. Still lying in bed I (carelessly?) turned my head to the right. I instantly felt like I was crazy drunk; but without any alcohol. My head was SPINNING. It was like going from 0 to 600 on the teacup ride. My eyes were shooting back and forth behind my eyelids but there was nothing I could do about it. I couldn't make them stop.

I laid there, eyes shut, equally curious and frightened and I didn't dare move. I felt nauseous. After what felt like eternity (but couldn't have been longer than 3-5 minutes), I felt ok again. Not 100%, but the spinning stopped. Then I moved my head back center. Nope. It happened all over again. This time I didn't move for an hour. When I finally got the nerve up, I moved my head at the speed mold grows; eyes shut. It wasn't great but nothing was as bad as before.

I fell back to sleep but woke up startled. Instantly the dizziness was twice what it was before followed by nausea and this time I broke out into an all over sweat with sweat beads and all- the kind of evil sweat you only get before you're about to pass out or die.

I have never experienced this phenomenon before and I had no idea what was happening to me or why. I gave my now terrified 13 year old daughter my phone and mumbled to her to click on earthclinic.com. I told her to look up dizziness and read everything out loud.

Within minutes she came to me with two drops of peppermint essential oil in about 4oz of warm water. She had to give it to me with a straw as I wasn't lifting my head for any reason. Within minutes I felt about 50% less dizzy. She read more. She had my son run to the store for Ginkgo Biloba. I took 2 as soon as he returned.

Peroxide. I filled one ear and listened to the bubbles while trying not to puke in my bed for no less than 15 minutes each. Then I flipped… s l o w l y.

I fell asleep for about an hour. Upon waking I continued to drink as much water as I could and even dissolved some sea salt in hot water and drank that. I also balled my eyes out intermittently because I can't know how to prevent something so horrific if I don't know what causes it.

Colloidal Silver. She got out the spray bottle filled with CS and handed it to me with a wad of toilet paper. I filled each ear and laid there for about 15 minutes on each side. I fell asleep again, positive my brain had committed to atrophy.

My daughter read on. Epley Maneuver.

Now- I was viciously afraid of trying this. I'd literally rather dump lemon juice in a gaping wound. Alas, I gave in and it wasn't as bad as I thought. It didn't work, but it didn't kill me. We did it wrong. There are 5 steps. She had watched a video that only had 4.
About 3 hours later she managed to threaten me into trying it again. She found a different video this time. You have to start AND end sitting up. Reluctantly, I did it.

I sat up and held my breath. When I finally relaxed and opened my eyes, I knew right then there was a difference in my vision. It seemed cleaner. I was still dizzy and I am still dizzy writing this now at 7:43pm, BUT I have been able to get up to go to the bathroom and take a shower that would have otherwise landed me on the bathroom floor with a concussion and maybe even that open wound.

I felt compelled to write this now, before I blissfully forget todays traumatic incident so there could be a testimony out there of what it's like when this happens to someone for the first time. I don't know how long I should expect this mild dizziness but my daughter found on multiple sites that it can last weeks to months. I pray to God that's not the case. I am also thankful to God for this website and for my kiddos who were able to help me through this. My heart goes out to anyone who experiences this alone.

I know the peppermint drops worked for me in slowing the horrific spinning and quelling the nausea.

I don't know about the peroxide, the GB or the colloidal silver, but I would t count them out. Teamwork makes the dream work.

I do know the Epley Maneuver (all 5 moves) worked for me in bringing the ordeal down from a hot 10 to a one.

I know prayer worked and continues to work. And I also know that I can always turn to my earth clinic family for support. Thank you to everyone who writes in for the benefit of the rest of us.
