I’m just wondering how many of you struggle when you have had a day lying around?
Obviously if you are having a vertigo ‘attack’ it’s all you can do, but inbetween, I find if I lie around in the day to watch TV or a movie and then have to get up later to go out, I feel really off balance and out off sorts. It really throws my system out.
Just wondering if it’s just me!
Yes, i have this, it’s good to keep moving. The more i slob - for example having a tummy bug that meant i had to stay still for a couple of days, took me a while to get back into the swing of things!
Yeah, me too. My balance system doesn’t seem to do so well when I’ve been lazing around!
Thanks guys! So weird isn’t it!
Also, if I sleep and get straight up I’m better than if I wake up and lay in.
Weird old brain !!!
I actually feel better when I am lying down. I mainly feel my symptoms when stood up and moving around. I do try to stay active though as lying down all day is not good for the psyche
I’ve heard that the MAV brain doesn’t like lie ins! I’m the same - have to get straight up and eat asap otherwise i feel alot worse!
In the short term, I feel better lying down as it is not using my balance system but if I lie in too long or just spend a very lazy day doing hardly anything then I can feel more muzzy and woozy headed. Conversely if I do too much activity then I can feel more woozy and off balance too. Got to find the balance between doing enough but not overdoing it x
Jem, I couldn’t have said it better myself!
