    I had this same exact thing happen to me in Dec 2006. I woke up feeling like the room was spinning, threw up several hours later, it lessened over 10 hours, then resolved.

    Purdue Nurse...could it be that you have "benign paroxysmal positional vertigo" caused by tiny crystals (otoliths) that have formed in the inner ear and when they start floating around they cause symptoms of vertigo ? See this website or just do a search of "benign paroxysmal positional vertigo" on the internet ->


    My Mom had similar symptoms without any physical indications for anything else and this was her dx. Her Dr taught her how to do the Epley Manuever and she has had pretty good success with it, although sometimes she ends up going back to the Dr to have him help her with getting the positions correct.

    Good Luck...hope you can determine what this is or that with some time it goes away !

    Had a pt. with this several yrs. ago. A young health care professional. It came on suddenly and hit her like a ton of bricks. Took awhile to diagnose and more time to treat. She was off work for about 3 months as I recall.

    I certainly hope you'll soon be feeling better!

    Get a medical check up and quick. Daughters have both been hit by this and are still reeling. Both have to have some surgery after the inflamation clears up. Hope you feel better soon.
