Hello, I am experiencing a positional vertigo. When I go

Hello, I am experiencing a positional vertigo. When I go to sleep when I turn on my right side, everything is spinning around me. During the day, I am OK, no dizzy feeling. Since I am sleeping in an armchair sitting in the last 2 days, I would like to have a little rest over the weekend. I never had such an episode before. I am 63 year-old woman. Can you advise me some medication over the counter I can take to have a good night sleep?

I have positioning vertigo; however, I have been able to handle this for over 22 years. My question is that I’m now experiencing dizzy spells more frequently when I get up after sitting for more than 30 minutes or using my computer to read long documents in my business. Why??

I had my first horrendous bout with vertigo last week when visiting my mother in CA (I live in NC). She took me to urgent care where the doctor said I have positional vertigo. Since then, I feel like I m at the end of a flu episode with low energy and frequently tired. I am careful that I don t bend my head down towards the floor or back much. Every morning so far (it has been only a week) after I get up, I don t feel good and go back to bed for several hours, then get up for the day. I lose 1/2 a day each day. Is this normal? By the way, I m 66, generally good health.

I am a regular blood donor (every 8 weeks). After a donation this morning I felt fine immediately after the donation but within approx. 15 minutes I experienced severe dizziness and light-headedness along with sweating and a clammy feeling. I failed to eat before the donation, and worked-out at a gym before donating and likely was dehydrated. Before the Blood Bank would allow me to drive home I had a small amount of orange juice and about an ounce of raisins. I recovered enough to drive home however 6 hours later my BP is 90/50. I m medicated for hypertension (heredity--I work out regularly, am 5 4 tall weighing 124 lbs and am a vegetarian) and my normal medicated BP is around 110/60. I can t seem to get the blood pressure back up closer to normal and am still experiencing positional vertigo (when I stand from a sitting or bending over position). Should I be concerned?
