I feel strange

When I woke up this morning, sat up, put my feet on the floor and headed toward the bathroom, I felt myself listing toward the left.  Sort of a dizzy feeling, but things weren't whirling; I just had to watch out or I'd fall over to my left.  I figured it would pass, that perhaps I got up too fast.

Unfortunately, it did not.  My coffee didn't set well with me, and I wasn't hungry; although at 10 A.M. I finally ate some cereal because once in awhile when you feel a little ill, eating makes it better.

Inner ear, perhaps.  I took my temperature and blood pressure.  Nothing unusual.

Although I've adjusted, I'm still listing to the left and not feeling as perky as I should; I really notice the dizziness if I bend over and then straighten back up.

Very peculiar.  If this feeling doesn't go away by Monday, I'll be seeing a doctor to find out what in Sam Hill's going on.

But I'll bet I'll be fine when I wake up tomorrow.

sure wouldn't hurt to have it checked out,but if you don't it could be trouble!!

Mother dearest, don't wait until Monday.  Women's signs of trouble are different (and often more subtle) than men's.  If you feel weird tomorrow, go.  I love you.

It wouldn't hurt a thing to go see a doc. I have that vertigo myself but a couple of times I have ended up in the ER because I wasn't sure. As I have got older I  have it a lot more often. Hope you feel better soon. Keep us updated. Helen

Thats my line....."It'll go away by tomorrow."  you should at least call the doctor.  It could be something serious.

I always give it the 3 day rule and if things aren't better see the doctor.  You are wise to do so if you are not better.  Hopefully the morning will see you all better.

Be careful, high blood pressure can sometimes carry the same signs...good to here your going to the doc.

I hope you're feeling much better by now.  There are so many things that could cause vertigo.  Hopefully it's just inner ear.  Take care!

I wonder if moving has stirred up a lot of allergens, and you are dizzy from that. Let's hope its something that simple, huh?
Keep us posted.

Call your doctor's and ask to speak to the nurse - she can tell you if you should wait or you can wait until Monday. A lot of people don't realize you can just call and ask, most of the time things can be dealt with over the phone instead of going in.

Please call the Drs office or ER & speak with a nurse. What you describe can be symptoms of several things, one is blood pressure...which could be a waiting stoke.
God bless,

Not good. Get it checked out.

It sounds like inner ear, but you never know.  I'm always dizzy! lol    Seriously.  I've been like that since I was 15.  I can't lay flat on my back because the room will start spinning.  They call it positional vertigo.  
I can see by your other entries (following this one) that you seem to be okay, so that's good! :)

I hope it's nothing serious. I have vertigo too - got it early in February. There is also a kind that is from some sort of small crystal deposits of calcium or something like that - that one can be treated. I don't get spinning feelings, I feel more like I am standing in a rowboat in a storm. Annoying, isn't it?
