I get a weird sensation that im falling whist laying in bed. Does this sound like vertigo?

Vertigo: Vertigo is a perception of moving, often associated with change in position or more constant but usually the latter resolves over time. If you have a constant sense of moving while you lie still in bed, it might be vertigo, but could be other things. The sudden sense of falling as you get to sleep is not vertigo, but a variation of something called myoclonus, benign. See your doctor or ent. ...Read more

Vertigo: There are many causes of vertigo that can be related to your central nervous system, your balance system, and even migraines. Without more information regarding the timing, duration, and onset of the symptoms, it is difficult to asses your question. If your symptoms persist, I recommend you see your primary physician or an urgent care physician to ensure your symptoms are better evaluated. ...Read more

Normal for vertigo? Off balance, throbbing head with no pain, stiff neck, blurry vision off and on and I get a swaying sensation When I walk.

Normal for vertigo? Off balance, throbbing head with no pain, stiff neck, blurry vision off and on and I get a swaying sensation When I walk.

Most of the symptoms: are "normal" for vertigo, but Vertigo itself isn't "normal'. I don't usually find "stiff neck" as a symptom unless it's your body's natural attempt to lessen the symptoms. My general rule of thumb is that it should lessen in 3 days and be gone in a week or so. Meds help ease the symptoms. If you get nausea or vomiting, are falling or have numbness, tingling or weakness anywhere, get help! ...Read more
