Mine seemed to come on slowly over the course of a couple of months and then one day, wham! I'm on the floor, the walls were spinning. I couldn't turn my head without vomiting. I slept on the floor because it was the only thing I knew for certain wasn't moving. The very next morning I was at the doctor's office. The doctor mentioned that it's very common to get it as we get older because of the crystals in the ear moving around. Coincidentally I've developed a secret hatred for those tiny crystals...

I haven't had an episode since November. I'm kinda hoping it's done and over with... *crosses fingers*

I clicked on this link because I'm dizzy now. I've had a cold for almost a week and today it feels like that time I drank too much and was hugging the floor so the world would stop spinning. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow.

In case anyone else clicks on this thread: I also get vertigo that is associated with my migraines. My neurologist told me that folks who get migraines and tend to get car or motion sick are likely to experience vertigo. My vertigo usually comes without the migraine pain, when I'm lying down. I haven't had a migraine or the associated vertigo in a while. *knock on wood*
