I have been gone for a few months enjoying my blissful life without dizziness and only a few headaches until now. Last week I had an attack around 3am when I got up to go to the bathroom as I do almost every night around that time. This time just as I was about to sit a wave of dizziness hit me and literally knocked me back. Thankfully I was above the toilet so I landed on it instead of the floor. That was the first time I had any episode that made me completely loose my balance. I went back to bed and as I lay my head on the pillow another wave of dizziness. Get up in the morning and have to be very careful to sit on the edge of the bed and wait for dizziness to go away before I can get up and move around. Same thing every night and morning now including other positional dizzies like turning my head from side to side or looking up. This has been going on for over a week now. Luckily it is restricting itself to mostly in the evenings/night so aside from being a little brain fog during the day I am pretty much ok. The only thing that I am able to come up with that changed is a dish I ate with shrimp. It was veggies, noodles and shrimp but when I read the package it said it had sodium tripolyphosphate to retain moisture in the shrimp. Which I googled and read that it is a pretty undesirable chemical added often without us even knowing it.
I searched this site for any reference to it but found nothing and was just wondering if anyone has any insight or thoughts as to whether this is likely the cause of my relapse.
