All in a spin – Saturday 4 July 2020

Last Monday evening it was rough but the allure was too strong and after a lovely 20 minutes playing in the waves I felt a little heady which was worse Tuesday morning but again, the addiction was too much. I was spun by a wave and WOW, my head spun so much that I had to be accompanied to my car and then sat there feeling as if I had drunk a bottle of whisky. I haven’t been swimming since but I have been reading and researching. I am pretty convinced I have something called Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) as the symptoms are identical to an article I found online. I thought it might be helpful for others to have a read.

I am seeing a chiropractor on Monday – fingers crossed! Oh and the full article can be seen here, it is 2 pages but I can only seem to show one here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4009091/pdf/ASJSM-5-071.pdf
