It turns out that vertigo is actually a form of dizziness - dizziness being when you feel as if your head is spinning, vertigo being when you feel as if the room is spinning. That old saying is right - you learn something new everyday (well i do anyway ).
At least i now have an explanation for the spinning room, the nausea and the walking into door frames (having problems getting through the gap in the middle!). It is a most bizarre feeling!
So what has caused my vertigo? Well (apparently) vertigo can be migraine related (i havent had a full blown migraine for about 5 years but i have had a niggling headache while i have been having these dizzy spells so this is a possibility) or it can also be caused by a viral inner-ear infection, generally after just having a cold (seeing as i had a cold all of last week then this could be a possibility as well). Not really bothered which of these is the cause for me - just as long as it sorts itself out sooner rather than later.
I have to say that this is not a good affliction for a person currently spending half of her day up a ladder trying to wallpaper a bedroom, but i am not going to let it stop me from getting this decorating done. I want the diy finished so i can sell my house and go to oz!! So if the vertigo gets any worse i intend to lash myself to the ladder!!!
