Ok I have come up with what I call a “Home Remedy” for dealing with vertigo.
I sit with one finger held in front of my face, out maybe 10 inches or so. I concentrate on this finger for a short time and it helps to stop the room from spinning…..until I move my head again but it helps.
Any other ideas or “Home Remedies” to help us cope with the many symptoms of our illness?
there are some things that we can do to ease our symptoms, they may be little things that work for you but not for me and vise versa, but nothing ventured nothing gained.
diet is a very important part of treatment. I find when using hot water I am prone to getting burned if the water is to hot, I cant tell the difference, I feel hot and cold but not to the degree I used to. Then there are the head aches, how do people cope with these aside from the meds. I know that inflammation causes some of the nerve issues so I am grateful to you for this link
lie across your bed with your head over the edge, but your neck resting on the edge of the bed. (if it's really bad, have someone hold/turn your head for you) apply very gentle, lifting pressure to either side of your head, while keeping your head straight. hold for 20 seconds, then relax for 10 seconds. repeat 4 times. next, SLOWLY turn your head to the right while applying the same gentle pressure. same time frame and reps. return to original positon and repeat. next, SLOWLY turn you head to left and repeat the process. finally, return to the original position and hold again for 2 - 3 minutes. get up very slowly, you are done.
when i had vertigo a few years back, i went to a pt that specialized in vertigo. after 3 or 4 treatments, it was gone! like magic! hope this helps some of you!
maybe annie can hold your neck for you. it's much easier and effective if someone else helps you! just go very very slow and gentle. when the pt did it to me, i could barely tell she was turning my neck because she did it so slowly! hope it works and doesn't make you worse! ; ( that would be very bad.....i might even have to go into hiding for a while!
well, ray, i'm sure there must be a reason. i mean you are a man and all...so obviously you have done something wrong. so, own up to it and admit you were wrong. then she'll love you again and want to do things to help you! lol! ; )
Are you mad she is a sumo wrestler kickboxing female Rambo….she it the best though, she told me to say tha lol!!!
I went to a chiropractor years ago, wonder could this have caused some damage to my neck, it was a lower back issue at the time but he did some manipulation of my neck as well. The ENT said that physiotherapy would/could help with the vertigo, this makes me think your suggestion about the bed thing could be very beneficial, the ENT wants me to see the NS first though because of the syrinx.
i like your lady already! great humor! i don't know enough about the syrinx business yet...but i don't see how it could hurt if you go real slow and gentle like the pt did with me. and it really did the trick for me. i hope it works for you to and that your pcp says it won't hurt you to try. this is the only thing that has helped me in the past! let me know what your dr. says!
