Dinah, I was doing very well mentally, in my life, and one morning at 4, I awoke, rolled to my left, and bam, vertigo. My eyes were jumping, couldnt see, dont know how long it went on. I had a bad panic attack, threw up, was off the rest of the day.And, btw, this was on a Friday, the 13th! So I didnt have another attack until exactly 1 month later. I had just gotten my anxiety about it under control, thought it was a one time thing. Exact same thing happened, 4am 1 month later. I really lost it, and my anxiety got so out of control. I kept feeling like I was gonna spin out at any time. I saw an ent specialist who explained things to me about benign positional vertigo, and that I had fluid in one ear too. I just felt so out of control. But what's really weird is it has never happened again. I refused all meds back then and sunk into a deep depression because I didnt treat my extreme anxiety. It was a real dark time in my life. But if I'd been like you and just accepted it, I would never had gone thru that. I cannot stand to think I dont have control of something, and vertigo was one thing that really got to me.
