Vertigo? Or what??

Hi everyone,to cut to the chase,I noticed this morning when I woke up and opened my eyes,I felt like I was spinnig and it lasted a few seconds,and my vision got stable.As soon as I slipped out of bed,I got the same exact dizzy feeling as I sat up,which lasted a few seconds as well.I went to the bathroom,and came back to bed,and lay down for a little while longer,just to test out if I got dizzy again.I slipped out of bed again,and I got the same feeling of the room spinning/dizziness again,for a few seconds.I got up and walked a little,and noticed my balance was off a bit,but regained it within a few seconds.I’m currently taking iboprophen about 3 times daily for my low back pain.I was also taking 50mg lyrica,but stopped last week.

Also my right ear has been ringing for a few months now,and it feels like it has wax build up,and sometimes my hearing  is muffled.I also get neck pain when I lie down.Which I massaged and stretched yesterday before sleeping.

Anyone know what could be causing this? Is it vertigo??

I took my blood pressure and it was at 108.

Any opinions?



  • I have chronic inbalance and "vertigo" and have not to the bottom of it. I am seeing my spine doc again and maybe he does think it is neck related.  I had Angios, MRIs, EMGs and all sort of normal...i do some minor  c-4 and c4-5 degeneration....neck spasms reccurrently...saw  two ENT doctors and dont think it's related to the inner ear (or neurological since I passed all of their tests)but who knows! also light sensitivity for a long time now. have you had any studies done?

  • Dave, the first thing is to let your MD know. But you did give a few clues one was ringing of the ear and muffled hearing, which points to a inner ear issue. One way to find out is sit up, turn your head from side to side with eyes closed then open your eyes. If the dizziness occurs, it’s most likely inner ear which normally will resolve on its own. Regardless, follow up with your MD if this problem persists.....David
