Interesting, I did. I had them at least every 2 weeks. Often enough that they wanted to put tubes in my ears.
I have always had a dizzy sensation from looking up. This violent spinning sensation just started.

Do you have medication for it? I keep my pills right beside my bed within reach. And I keep a few with me when I leave home. I never know when it is going to strike. It is not a fun problem to have. Sometimes I have to ignore the directions and take a second pill within 20 minutes.

Right now I am on medication for my angina that makes me dizzy when I lay down. Crazy at it sounds, that is one of the side effects. Sometimes it is so severe that I have passed out. It is a good thing I am on my bed laying down and not standing. Right now between the vertigo and the effect from the pills for angiina, I feel I am living in slow motion. No fast moves for me.

When I first went in to see her she gave me meclizine, and transderm patches. I never took any of it. I hate medicines that make me drowsy. I will see what the MRI shows on Wednesday and go from there. I'm not expecting much but one can always hope for the magic cure!

Several years ago I woke up at 6:30am with vertigo. I barely made it to the bathroom to throw up. I spent the next hour and a half on the bathroom floor because every time I opened my eyes or tried to move I had to throw up. Ten minutes before I was supposed to be at work I finally made it to the phone to call in sick. Fortunately I had a very good para who could take my class. When the doctor's office opened he told me over the phone that I had a virus that was going around & there wasn't really anything to do but wait it out. I spent a week in bed with my eyes closed. If I opened them the room would spin. I went back to work the next week but it was months before I stopped having moments of spinning and nausea.

A friend suffers from vertigo, which she generally experiences before a migraine. The doctors have never been able to figure out the cause or how to treat it. She has learned to live with both.
