I woke up in the night and had to pee, and about fell off the toilet seat because I was unbalanced. I figured it was because I was half asleep and went back to bed...but not to sleep.
I have vertigo. Not dizziness or lightheadedness, but vertio - a very distinct sense of motion where there is none. It's there all the time to a degree (I haven't felt 'right' since last night) but sometimes it gets worse and makes me vomit. I have a hard time walking straight and turning my head right or left seems to make it worse.
I haven't had any cold symptoms, tinnitus, or hearing loss. I can make my ears pop when I try Valsalva's Maneuver and there's no pain. My BP is 120/72, my pulse is in the 90's, respers at 18. My left pupil is larger than the right (I can't measure accurately) and is slower to respond to light. Urbaner says I have nystagmus (he's trained to administer field sobriety tests and know what nystagmus looks like).
I don't know if I have labrynthitis or what the fuck is going on. I do know that I'm seeing my doc at 0920 this morning, because this aint right.
Anyone got any ideas?
