    Thanks for having this site and for bringing it back. I don't post often but do read often. This has be a great help to me.

    Things seem to be calm right now. I'm enjoying every minute of it because I know it will come again and probably soon. I had a drop attack a week and a half ago--that came on the heels of the best two days I've had in months. GO figure!

    Again--welcome back!

    Hi Willie Marie,

    "Calm" is GOOD, no? Enjoy.

    Yes, it is certainly good to have this website back.

    Calm is DEFINITELY good. This disease has made me really appreciate any good health that I have. I no longer look at the life in front of me--I just take it day at a time. But I'm very thankful to the Lord for the calm.

    Well, I knew it would have to come to an end sometime. I have felt the symptoms coming back for the last couple of hours. I've tried to just relax but it is still coming.

    Do any of the rest of you ever have it like that? I mean sometimes it just hits out of the blue--and others like today--it starts gradually and no matter what you do it comes back-(in another couple of hours I know that I'll not be able to do much at all)-Seems to me that when they come on gradually they tend to last longer.

    My vertigo attacks always hit out of the blue. The other symptoms would build gradually.

    Yes, I agree with you when I feel it comming on I say oh no its starting again time to go and sit down. It is worse when it starts faint and then goes full blown it seems to last for hours sometimes all day.
    I hope you feel better soon,

    Thanks to both Linda and MC Spinner. It helps some how to know that I'm not the only one that has the problems. I really do tend to doubt my own sanity sometimes.

    I really appreciate all of you.

    I too have the attacks come from out of the blue.. I was doing just fine for 3 months up until this past tuesday and i woke up... got out of bed and BAMMM.. down I went.. room spinning, had to sit for awhile.. got up thinking i would be fine, started to get ready for work and realized it was going to be impossible.. called in sick and of course called my ENT in a panic. Got a ride there and was told that I needed to see the Neurotologist which is a 4 1/2 hour ride for me... sucks I know but he feels that after the last gent injection that he did that there was really nothing more he could do for me and wants me to see the original doctor that did my other two gent injections to discuss the possibility of other sugery such as... VNS or shunt surgery. I see that doctor this Monday and I can only hope they will have some suggestions for me.

    You are not alone.... have you had any treatments?? ie: gent injections.. Physical therapy... or surgery?? take care.

    No injections or surgery--but did have physical therapy which made a world of difference.

    This morning things aren't bad enough for me not to go to work--but they are just all "off". It is one of those days when I know I many have to come home early--but I'll give it a shot anyway.

    Thanks again to all
    Willie Marie
