Got a call from the oncologist today. She said that everything looked fine on my MRI. She still isn't sure why I have been so dizzy. She gave me a prescription for motion sickness medication. I took one last night and am praying that I can wake up to a non-dizzy world.

Thank you for all of your prayers! Please keep praying for healing.

My mom thinks that it might be because of menopause. Her vertigo happened after menopause. She said that it was because of her hormone fluctuations. I saw online, and it seems to happen to a lot of women during menopause. Who knew? Well, now you do. Prepare. Tell your husbands to prepare. Tell your children to prepare.


  1. So happy to hear your test results were normal. You know, Roger had severe dizziness earlier this year which was also the worst when he went from laying down to sitting up. After visiting our regular doctor, he was sent to a neurologist. The disorder was called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV. It has to do with little crystalline objects in your inner ear that maintain your balance. When these objects get displaced it results in severe dizziness. Roger was given some exercise/movements to do, actually, I had to move his head around in a particular pattern as he lay back on the bed. He also was told to sleep sitting up (in a recliner) and not to lay flat for a couple days. The condition slowly resolved itself, but he felt much better in 2 weeks. Hope this may be helpful. Worth checking out.
