If it helps, when you say vertigo to a doc, he will automatically think spinning. When you say “dizzy” well, you don’t know what they are thinking, maybe spinning, maybe offbalance or lighted headed.
After reading Kaylie’s post, I am going to start saying my dizzyness feels like I just got off a merry-go-round, nothings spinning, but I can’t get my bearings. Then I will add in all of the other stuff I experience. :lol:
My migraine prevention plan is rather simple, try to lead a very humdrum routine life. (yeah right :lol: ) A very strict sleep cycle, I go to bed at almost the same time every night, and only let myself sleep in an hour or two on the weekend mornings. Reduced stress in my life, I try not to do too many things in a day, and give myself at least a hour to myself at night. I will also take short naps if I start to feel tired, wich is almost a given when I get home from work. Then there is diet and excercise, and of course medication, Klonopin at bedtime (mostly for tooth grinding and headaches caused by the grinding) and Depakote.
