I have had a severe headache on the right side of the head. Labrynthitis has been diagnosed but there is no explanation for the severe headaches.

I have been very dizzy since yesterday, especially when I get up from sitting down. I am going to try these exercises I've heard about. I also take motion sickness pills that help a little.

I was asleep on my side one night when I turned rapidly from side to side. I have used this method of turning in my sleep as long as I can remember only this time something different happened. When I turned I felt my skull turn with my body but my brain felt like it lagged behind my skull and then snapped into place like a rubber band. I have never remembered that happening in the past and it was painful. I went to work that day as usual but later in the afternoon when I had to climb and examine some equipment I became so dizzy that I had to sit down and thought that I may need to call emergency services. After 10 minutes I was well enough to drive to an emergency health care facility where I had a CT scan and all was clear. I was diagnosed with labyrinthitis and given an antibiotic and motion sickness pills. It has been a week and I still feel dizzy and am hoping to feel better soon.

The first time I ever had it, was so bad I called an ambulance. I could not open my eyes; the room was spinning around so fast I couldn't see anything. I had to crawl to the bathroom, vomiting the whole way. I spent the day in the ER on meclazine, copazine and who knows what. After that, I learned my lesson. If I feel a slight spin I start taking benadryl, meclazine and sudafed in the daytime. Never again has it been that bad.
