I had 2 bouts of vertigo where the room was spinning and it

Customer Question

I had 2 long bouts of vertigo where the room was spinning and it would stop only if I laid propped up on several pillows and wouldn't move my head. I had whole body sweating at these times and nausea. Then I had a terrible headache for two is mostly gone now. I have a doctor appointment on 12/1. Can I wait until then to have it checked or should I try to get worked in now? My symptoms are gone for now.

Hi. I think it would be best for you to be checked out now

While this may just have been benign vertigo it may have been a transient ischemic attack--a threatened stroke--so I'd advise you to see your doctor now

Let me know if you need any more information please
