    I had vertigo BPPV for about 6 years, had an epley treatment somewhere along the way, it came back, did at home brandt doroff ex's for years - knew how and when it would happen and luckily there for a while it would stop spinning and I could go on - driving was ok because my head was still - typing was ok, but walking was not, etc, if you're reading this you know. I had a good Epley about 2.5 yrs ago and praise God it was gone for 2 years, with only 2 different 12 hr episodes in that time. I think it came back gradually this time because I'd been switched to Zanaflex for my back pain and subsequent muscles locking up - and I started to get that "floaty" feeling as I call it...for several months but no actual left sided spinning episodes, so I never thought about the vertigo. Was foggy, eye problems, and headaches - thought i twas the medicine and it was but then one day bam So, Had a professional epley, w spine issues sleeping sitting up is very painful esp the next day but it lasted almost a week - I was so mad it came back and I didn't even do anything to set it off - so I did a set myself and slept half the night upright - was gone about 4 days but that was four days w no ear ringing, no spinning, clear head and ah...just relief. Did it again, fixed it again, back today just trying to lay flat on the bed to do my back exercises which I've been avoiding so I wouldn't spin but my back has been hurting alot because of that - I can't afford to pay the PT every time it comes back unless it's gonna stay gone. ANYway....do you think it came back cause of the Zanaflex? I had a brain MRI so guess nothing showed up other than I have one? LOL Determined NOT to let this run my life like I did last time. Thanks for the group!

    I'm 69 yrs old. I've suffered from fatigued for many years without knowing the cause. I know that I've got thin blood but the fatigue could be caused by other things. Any questions that could help me? I'm quite fit. Eat healthy. Addicted to chocolate. Is there a natural way of combatting thin blood? I suspect that thin blood has prevented heart attacks (family trait to have them).

    Vertigo came on suddenly @ PT. Had cortisone ER visit months before because of not breathing properly and intense hot and sweating. I want to find a more holistic way because allopaths just want to soak it up... Or so it seems. Let me know.
    Thanks so much
