Just had me a nice little wave of vertigo. As in, with no warning, the room went spinny and I felt like I had to hold on to the desk. Only lasted about 5 seconds, but, um, that's fricking weird.

I know it's probably not reassuring, but that happens to me all the time...

Just a captain obvious question... When was the last time you ate? Do you need a snack or a beverage? I get low blood sugar with no warning on account of being a coffee addict, so the spontaneous hunger vertigo without actual hunger symptoms is familiar to me...

I'd just finished my afternoon snack of water, almonds and a pear, so bloodsugar level should have been fine...

How much medication are you taking? a side effect of medication and illness can be sudden vertigo if you move too quickly or twist too quickly.

Not fun, but nothing to actually worry about unless you find yourself on the floor unable to move for the room spinning (and no alcohol was involved :P)

Today's the first day with no cold meds, not caffeine, nothing. Given my weird response to caffeine, it might have been a reaction to the tea yesterday.

full sitting to full standing?

spins acompanied with a ringing or a wooosh sound and or possably tingles?

prolly just a head rush from rapid change in blood presure.

Nope. This happened while I was sitting at my desk, movement was at most a slight right to left turn in my chair.

How does your BP tend? Low at all?

Tends to the high side if I'm not careful, actually.

That happens to me when I do too. Apparently it's not uncommon. I forget the mechanics of it, to be honest, but I remember it making sense... haha

Yeah, I cancelled my planned gym excursion and just came home. Hopefully, early bed tonight.

This has happened to me randomly and without warning at work as well. I have no idea what the cause was but it stopped just as mysteriously as it started.
