Coping with Vertigo--the one in extreme pain

This time I am really hit hard.. It started all early in the morning. It wasn't all that bad yet, just feeling a tad lightheaded. I head back to bed..and woke up at about 10am and the spinning has escalated to a different level. Imagine the room moving and you losing control of your steps. Or a prolong motion sickness .. that's how I am feeling right now.

It has been more than 10 hours. Most of the time I was lying down.. sleeping. I tried eating lunch, barely managed a few mouthful. The stomach has turn topsy turvy because of the imbalance.

My mouth is dry( I did drink water) and the tinniest bit of movement makes me queasy. The pain may not be the kind of * oh someone just stabbed me with a knife *pain, but nevertheless..a pain. My routine has been thrown out of bound, I can't totally function and I hate it.

I need to lie down now..

Edited--it's 11.30 now been sleeping earlier.. feeling a little better after taking doc's medication...but still having the dizzy feeling...just that it wasn't as bad as during the day. Am quite upset that I can't go out in this state.. and also feeling lousy that I have been taking my body for granted. Am gonna rest now.. good nite
