Question: Vertigo, how long does it last?
|ordinarymom - Sun Dec 28, 2008 4:43 pm||
I have been suffering from what the doctor called Begnign Positional Vertigo for 5 weeks now. Sometimes it is attacks of just dizzyness, and sometimes it can knock me out for the whole day. I have been suffering from headaches that are only relieved when I vomit and some spontanious vomiting ( no warning) I always feel fatigue when the attacks are at there worst. I would like to know how long does this last, could there be something more that is wrong?

Regarding the duration of symptoms, that would be a hard question to answer.
Is your headache positional as well? What I mean is it more severe on stooping forwards? Do you have blurring of vision when it happens? Do you have a fever? Recent trauma to the head?
If symptoms persist, at one stage your doctor may consider a CT/MRI of the brain just to make sure there's nothing to worry about.
You should report your symptoms to your doctor right away.
Please keep us updated.
