Vertigo? Now You Can Treat It At Home
Vertigo. Have you heard of it?
Maureen was a high diver until the day she experienced the dizziness of vertigo on the platform. While looking down at the pool, she noticed an uneasy spinning feeling and stepped back, sick with vertigo. After a week of rest, she faced the pool again from the platform, but the imbalanced and reeling feeling returned, sending her almost reeling into the pool. Her doctor diagnosed her with vertigo or unsteadiness, and recommended she retire from diving.
Years ago as Carol Foster, MD, an associate professor at the CU School of Medicine, started experiencing episodes of room-rotating dizziness and the accompanying nausea, she was astounded – not because she didn’t know what was taking place, but because the unpleasantness and disorientation her own patients experienced was so much more severe than she had ever imagined.
