Yes, I have definitely had vertigo. I didn't know what was happening to me. The first time it happened, my daughter was about five years old, and I was tucking her in bed for the night and praying with her, and when I got up, I felt off, like I was way off balance - the room wasn't spinning, it was different from being dizzy. I went to the doctor, and he told me I was experiencing classic vertigo symptoms, and in his opinion, it was caused by my cold and allergies I was suffering at that time.
Now, if it happens occasionally, I don't worry and it usually passes. If you're getting dizzy though, that may not be vertigo, and you may need to see a doctor, because if you're getting dizzy, I would get it checked out.
