Seriously, when I had my vertigo spell on 12/24, The Day The Journey Began, I was asked to describe what I was going through. Was the room spinning or was I spinning? I was the one spinning.
So I go to see the neuro a few weeks later and he phrased the question similar to what I see here: "is it like when you were drunk in high school and you had to put your foot on the floor to keep the bed from spinning?" NO...... very different than being intoxicated.
His report used the phrase "true vertigo".
Then again, he was the first neuro who was so very pleasant and nice and condescending to me that I won't go back to him, so do I believe his writeup?
