Customer Question

I got the shingles Sept 14th...they weren't a bad case but my first. Two weeks later, I got up out of bed and felt lie a ton was pulling me on both side, I could not keep my balance and landed on the floor. EMS had to come get me, hospital said I had Vertigo, gave me 2 viles for dehydration and sent me home for rest. I did ok until 10 days ago when I got out of bed again and felt the same symptons with some clogged ears. I have been to 2 hospitals now and Urgent Care in one week and was given medicine for dizziness which do not help at all. I am not able to work, cant even take a shower! or do my daily housework. Itvhas got me so down and also so scared now not being able to find help. I have had a Catscan, EKG, bloodwork and urinalysis. It has gotten so bad not eing able to live a normal life, I feel its time to quit fighting this and die. PLEASE HELP

At this point, you need to see an ENT and get hooked up with physical therapy for vertigo.

Have you done this?
