Encyclopedia: V

V is for Vertigo

No, not the genus of snail, and not the movie by Alfred Hitchcock. I suffer from the medical condition.

About once a month, sometimes more often, I become dizzy and feel as if the room is spinning. I generally have to sit or lie down for about 15 minutes, until the buzzing sensation in my head is gone. I have never thrown up from vertigo, but have felt slightly noxious on several occasions.

What is your weird medical quirk?

i get dizzy sometimes, too. not nearly as regularly as you do, but every once in a while the room will be spinning and i will have to lay down. i can't wait to see what you come up with for x and z.
