Well, to tell the truth I am scared. It came so out of the blue. I was feeling perfectly fine and then it was not only sudden but so severe. My first thought was that I was having a stroke. I look back over it and can't think of anything I could do differently to prevent it happening again.

So in that way I'm scared. But as I move around with no problem, I gain (false) confidence. And there's nothing I can do about it. I didn't cause it, as far as I can tell, and can't prevent it.

I tend to be less frightened by things that are totally beyond my control. We joke that if they were to tell me that an asteroid was coming our way, I'd first panic and come to the conclusion that somehow I'd caused it. Once I decided it wasn't my fault, I'd probably shrug and say "Oh well."

What was vertigo like for you? How did it send you in a spiral? Is it ongoing or a one off deal? Last time it was ongoing, and lasted about as long as the doctor said it would take for my brain to adjust to the new normal in my damaged inner ear. The fact that I knew it was time limited helped a lot. But I can see how a lack of that assurance could cause a lot of problems.
