What causes dizziness upon closing eyes and stiffness of muscles in body?

Yes, last nite early morning I was laying down in bed because it felt like my eyes were ready to roll back in my head with a shape spinning in my head at the same time. This accursed at least five or more times as I was laying there. It scared me to close my eyes and go to sleep. When it became around 6:00 am in the morning I felt it had slowed down to shout my eyes to try to sleep. My head had a major spinning that felt like it was heavy on my head. Then, the scary part, I couldnt move my body, and I tried to speak out help to my husband and couldn t get any words out. I took it felt like many minutes to struggle to move, and finally I could move and cry out to him. Around 1 hour later it happened again. I have been dizzy all day, getting rushes of dizziness. What is happening to me? please let me know. Thank you, Kathleen

Hi,

You have symptoms of vertigo. It needs investigations, Stay in bed only in a comfortable position. Drink sufficient amounts of water and have light food / a liquid form of it suits. Take a pill of Avomin after eating for some relief. Need to get examined and investigated by an ENT / EYE doctor to find exact cause followed by a suitable treatment plan.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
