    Has anyone had non stop dizziness for a prolonged period of time?

    Dizziness is usually short term and comes and goes. Have you or anyone you know had dizziness that continues for an extended period of time...such as weeks? I am looking to write a hub on this issue.

    Hello Teacher:

    Personally I haven't experienced dizziness like this. However I do know an individual or two, who have had problems associated with the kind or types of dizziness, you are referring to in your question. There are certain disease, or disease conditions which could cause dizziness for prolonged periods of time...(ie.) days or weeks. Tinnitus, a condition of the inner ear, or infection of the Cochlea, is one I believe. Also vertigo or the constant motion of things moving about you is another. And its causes in turn can be many. Also Low blood pressure could cause someone to experience this type of dizziness on an ongoing basis. Hopefully I helped answer your question somewhat and give you enough info. to get you started on an article topic to write about. Good luck!

    I don't exactly suffer from prolonged dizziness, but I do experience bouts of vertigo that can last an entire day if not treated. During these spells, I have trouble maintaining balance, and at time experience nausea. There is very little I can do about it (outside of prescription medication). Moving around can be hazardous (I nearly fell down a flight of stairs trying to walk it off once). Laying down doesn't help, just creates a spinning sensation that makes thing worse. I've been told by doctors that vertigo is usually triggered by inner ear infections, and usually goes away with time. Other factors that may contribute are, poor diet, lack of sleep and restricted blood flow. I don't know a great deal on the topic, but I do know how it affects me, and what I can do to alleviate it.

    My sister did and she had to take Dramamine to get through the day. The doctors told her it would go away on its own. She had Vertigo. I had it for several days, same thing when I would lay down. So I slept sitting up and in a few days it was gone. My sister and I had nothing seriously wrong. Here is a Web MD link if your interested. The second page is about Vertigo.
