I have it, but mine is caused by meniere disease.  I take water pills and that seams to help quite a bit, but no glass elevators for me.

Mine actually occurs when I’m lying down, which is weird.  It makes me sick to my stomach, and I can’t even lay down to make myself feel better.  Knock on wood, I haven’t had an attack in quite a while, so let’s hope it stays that way!

I get occasional episodes. For a while, it was occuring so often that I got over my dislike of doctors and saw a specialist who deals specifically with patients who struggle with dizziness. I went through all sorts of testing, and they still have no idea what’s wrong with me. They ruled out the biggies (brain tumor, auditory problems, etc), but my test results weren’t conclusive for anything. There was a study done in patients for whom a definitive diagnosis could not be obtained that involved using low-dose Zoloft (25-37.5 mg/day, whereas an antidepressant dose is closer to 200mg), and 85% of patients responded. My doctor tried it, and my episodes definitely became less severe and didn’t occur as often. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about it.

I get it randomly, for what seems like no reason. But, I also have inner ear issues, so that’s what causes mine

@HappilyEverAfter54: I’ve been on 3, and have had no issues whatsoever. But, I’ve been on boats all my life, and have sea legs. I am one of the few people who don’t have issues when going from boat to dry land, like a lot of people do. As long as you can get in the rhythm of the boat. you should be fine and not really feel the effects of it. Where are you leaving from?

@HappilyEverAfter54: Oh um….prepare yourself. I really hope that you got a room that is central in the boat, because unless you can deal with sleeping in a rocking boat, then you won’t be happy. Also, the second and sometimes third day is really rough, until you actually get out into the Atlantic.  So, like I said, prepare yourself. Make sure you stock up on those dramine dots that you put behind your ear. Also, make sure you eat like every 2 hours, don’t EVER let your stomach get empty.

i’m not trying to scare you, but I have seem so many people get sick out of Baltimore. I have been on 2 so far from Baltimore, and I don’t think I would go again.

I just wanted to chime in, I had similiar issues and after a couple years found out I had thyroid problems and started meds and feel better.  Make sure your doctors check your thyroids, ladies! It’s a very common disease and it is under diagnosed.

@HappilyEverAfter54: yeah, our first cruise we were low in the front and it sucked ass. I would really try to get as close to the center as possible. Is this for your honeymoon? TELL THEM THAT!! They should be able to get you guys something close.  And definitely the higher the better.
