Sorry if you were expecting a “Friday Funny,” or perhaps the classic “Friday Rant.” But it seems I have a rare case of (insert: 1950’s movie title) which has rendered me unable to drive, write, or make sandwiches that aren’t upside down. I’ll be back on Monday, I promise! But seriously – who gets vertigo?  It’s utterly bizarre.  I’m an active guy – I work seventy hours a week and hit the gym six times, and for the last couple days, I’ve been watching Ellen!  Seriously – ELLEN!!!

    Good luck Dave! Vertigo can be a pain…Pretty common too -there is a “Dizzyness clinic” in Toronto in St. Mike’s Hospital which specializes in the condition. Usually related to inner-ear imbalances.

    There’s also something called “Migraine Associated Vertigo” -which some migraine sufferers get. There are few answers as to why but a severe migrain can trigger a bout of vertigo which may last a few days or may become a permanent condition for some migraine sufferers.

    Oh no! I have been dealing with vertigo for 7 years. It did get better over the years but I still have residue effects. I’ve been to the “dizzy clinic” at the Toronto General Hospital, and I didn’t find it helpful at all. I probably have a case of migraine associated vertigo. It’s hard to diagnose. I started taking beta blockers (a migraine preventative as well as a heart pill) and I did notice an improvement.
    I hope you are doing better. Some cases resolve themselves quickly and some like to stick around for a while.

    Hi! I have had a number of vertigo “attacks”. I found a guy named Paul at a clinic at Coxwell and Danforth (1577 Danforth Avenue, Unit 4, 416-691-3943). He diagnosed bppv, which is related to crystals that form naturally in the ears, but they can slough off and fall into your inner ear fluid and wreak havoc with your balance and cause terrible nausea. Happily, bppv is easy to treat, although the treatment itself is extremely unpleasant as it involves rapid changes in position meant to hurl the crystal up and out of your ear. So, the good news is that if your vertigo is related to these crystals, you don’t have to live with it :o) I am having a pretty bad attack as I write this… unfortunately the guy at the clinic is out of town for 2 weeks 🙁
