When I first woke up it was both. I would say now it is the spinning sensation.
Yes I am feeling very nauseated and are experiencing the beginnings of what feels like a tension headache (feel my pulse beating with kind of sharp like pains). Certain sounds are very sharp and very annoying, like chalk on a chalkboard. I have experienced these symptoms before with migranes, even auras, the thing that concerned me was the feeling that I might pass out and the vertigo kicking in at the same time as the migrane symptoms.
I see I missed a couple of questions. To answer the question as to whether i feel like I am being pulled to one direction the answer is yes, like my body is being pulled to the left but the spinning goes around me from left to right. As to the speech the answer is again yes. I feel like what I am trying to say just doesn't come out right and I will actually slur my words. This is something that also happens to me quite a bit. It seems worse when my neck is really bothering me and the constant pain day after day somehow attributes to it or brings it on. Another note - I am 53 years old and menopausal. This probably doesn't change your answer but I thought I would let you know anyway.
