I’ve read so many articles on the various types of dizziness, how they feel, how to describe them. I don’t get full on spinning. I’m not sure what they would be called, and I’m wondering if anyone might be able to give a name to what I have.
The first type: So, I will be standing, doing the dishes, and as I turn my head slightly to the left looking down, I get a brief feeling of pulling down to the left, like I will just fall downward quickly. It’s not spinning, and it’s not the room going over, but a feeling like I’m going down quickly. I have to grab onto something. I don’t know what this type is called? My Neuro thinks this is from my bad neck.
The second type: I think definite migraine attack related- i feel like I’m on a boat on rough seas. I get jelly legs and legs feel uncoordinated, like I have to walk with intention. Ear ringing and nausea. I’m thinking this may be called imbalance and ataxia? Lasts about an hour- thinking brainstem aura.
The last issue I get when I’m flared up is a head pressure, throbbing in the ears when standing up after sitting. Is is not Orthostatic hypotension- I’ve tested my bp when it’s happened. It can be pretty intense and lasts several seconds. It only happens after I stand up after sitting at desk at work. Not after getting out of car or bed. It can come with some unsteady wooziness.
