I have just spent a day in bed due to whizzing head and nausea ! This may not sound too unusual to anyone with AN but to me it is the first time that it has seriously stopped me from doing anything . I am now 27 months post GK and up to now have not suffered
any significant balance problems . I must add that I have just returned from quite an exhausting holiday to the Cote D`Azur which involved hot climbs to villages perched on hilltops and views from dizzying heights as well as being driven on hair raising cornice roads
all ending with a bumpy flight and drive back home in thick fog and torrential rain ! I felt absolutely fine through all that and also the next day but last night woke up with a splitting headache and whizzing head which I hoped would go away after I took some Nurofen plus and drunk a lot of water but as I got out of bed in the morning everything was still whizzing around and I felt severe nausea as well which was enough to keep me in bed for the rest of the day ! I have just read most of the above information ,thanks .
and the only thing that I am wondering about is whether this is caused by my AN or just a temporary hic up affecting my balance .
I am not feeling too bad at the moment but any sudden head movements still seem to send my head into a spin but nothing as bad as earlier . If this becomes a more permanent feature I would like to know if there are medications that can be taken to lessen the symptoms .
