At home - resetting my head

 Had a very annoying start to the morning, when I realised my balance had gone.

Not completely, I've had that happen before and it's not pretty - no, this was just a mild dose of a condition I have - Benign Positional Vertigo

Basically, I couldn't walk straight and needed to hold on to something - it's a little like suddenly finding yourself on a Luna Park ride that you can't remember paying for and you're sure the operator holds a grudge against you for sneaking on. The upside is, when you close your eyes you see all these great covers for progressive rock bands you've never heard of.

So I need to do some exercises to reset my head (rather my inner ear). I stare straight ahead for 30 seconds, lean to the left for 30 seconds (still maintaining my stare), back up for 30 seconds, to the right for 30 seconds and so forth. I think the postman outside found it more disturbing then I did.

Anyway, the upshot is - one side is fixed, the other is still a little floaty. But at least I've been able to get out of bed.

It sounds kind of scary. I don't enjoy any kind of spinning sensation.

Ooh! I've had that. Was prescribed a different set of movements to cure it.
