I HAVE WHAT DOCTORS CALL VERTIGO, IVE HAD ALOT OF TEST RUN. ALL THE DOCTORS WANT TO DO IS SUBCRIBE MEDS, WELL IM GOING BROKE BUYING MEDS NONE IVE TRYED WORKS. THEY SAY IT SOULD STRIGHTEN IT SELF OUTBUT I NEED TO GET BACK TO WORK. IVE BEEN OUT OF WORK NOW FOR 8 WEEKS AND I CANT TRUST MY SELF TO DRIVE, THE DIZZINESS STARTS WHEN I GET UP IN THE MORNINGS AND LAST ALL DAY AND WHEN I LAY DOWN TILL I FALL TO SLEEP. I CANT FOCUS EVERY THING I DO SEEMS TO BE A STRUGLE. SORRY FOR MISS SPELT WORDS MY MIND IS JUST NOT WORKING RIGHT NOW. ANY SUGESTIONS.

Did you ask your doctor about excercises? My doctor did not mention them to me.
I found them on the internet and they help with SCCDS which causes dizziness

I just had a case of vertigo. I was referred to a vestibular physiotherapist. They will assess you, treat you and they will teach you how to treat yourself. I did not need any medications

There is an OTC medicine called Meclizine. It can be purchased at Walmart for very cheap. I have had vertigo my entire life. This is the only med that works.

Google BPPV and see if those are your symptoms. There IS relief available by doing the canalith procedure or Epley manipulation - non surgical!

I have had constant vertigo for over 2 years. It started suddenly and has not ever really gone away. No BPPV, no tumors. One specialist said cervical vertigo another said possible vein compression of the vestibular nerve. I have been to 10 doctors in the Chicago area. My live is in ruins. Like you it lasts all day and I also have given up driving. Tried the exercises and they did not help. Also like you the doctors keep suggesting various medications but I am very sensitive to the side effects of the medications. At this point I am not sure what to do. Let me know how you are
