Hello doctor,

I am a 28-year-old female. Yesterday morning, I woke up to the alarm and when I got up, my head spun in a way which I have never experienced. I fell on the bed and when I tried to get up, it spun again. My husband made me drink water and helped me in getting up. I felt tired and when I laid down, my head spun again. I started crying, felt nauseated and then I vomited. Only water in vomit and I felt hungry. After breakfast, I have not felt that head spin but I am not stable as well. I feel like the ground is shaking. Of note, I took Fexet four tablets. Please provide your opinion.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, get relaxed.

Do not panic. Everything has some solution.

According to your complaints, it looks like a BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) which is a problem occurring due to some calcium crystal deposition in the internal ear, the part which helps in maintaining a balance of the body.

You need to visit a nearby neurologist or a physician for physical treatment with Epley maneuver.

In rare cases, it could be a cerebellum-related problem which needs imaging studies.

But first, we need to rule out benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. You will be fine in a few days.

You need a referral to a neurophysician.

Preventive measures include avoiding non-vegetarian foods for few weeks. Drink plenty of water.

Avoid sudden waking up from bed or bending forward from a chair.
