Hello everyone. I used to have bad attacks of spinning & sickness,this stopped some years ago, now I get short spins of 10 seconds which strike out of blue,then I’m ok. Makes me nervous to go anywhere.Could end up on floor.

    Hi @jennyjenkins! Welcome to the scope community :) How are you doing today?

    I think I remember how you must feel. When I had major blood pressure issues just standing up would send my head into a spin. I collapsed once or twice and often had to steady myself even if I didn't. I'm glad it's better now but I still totally understand the worry and nervousness! 

    Have you seen a specialist for it at all? 
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
    Online Community Specialist
