Today I have mainly been V2.0


#3599

The last (and only other) time I had it, the doc reckoned it could be down to a minor throat infection. Nothing like that atm though.


#3600

Forgive me if you’ve been asked this before, but don’t travel sickness pills help?


#3601

I think they have pretty much the same effect as the tablets I have. Reduces the sickly feeling but do nowt for the dizzy bit.


#3602

One of my friends gets vertigo sometimes after a cold, his doctor prescribed antihistamine as he thinks he may have narrow tubes in his ear which get blocked easily.


#3603

yes its an addiction its hard to shake off !


#3604

Stemetil (Prochlorperazine) is quite effective. Damps down the spurious signal the nerve ends in your inner ear are sending to your brain. It’s not a cure though. Are you getting increased tinnitus along with the vertigo? Do you think both ears are causing it or just one?


#3605

My wife had dizzy spells a while back and was prescribed anti-psychotic drugs, which was a bit worrying


#3606

That sounds an unusual & odd response. I think I’d be looking for a second opinion from an ENT specialist.


#3607

Having met Adam I think it was a perfectly reasonable response.


#3608

That’s what I’m taking, feel less sick, but no effect on dizziness

Nope

Mainly left lug, less so from the right.


#3609

Apparently ginger is good for seasickness, who knows, may help?


#3610

Yes the vertigo had nothing to do with it, just that the doc thought it a bit extreme to go straight to horse tranqs as a first response.


#3611

Strangely, I never get seasick. Not even on the roughest crossings.


#3612

I do. The trip back from ETF wasn’t fun. :confounded:


#3613

Good grief man, it’s only a 90 minute crossing, isn’t it? You must get it bad.


#3614

5 hours, Le Havre to Portsmouth but I’m sure that was relatively tame compared with what’s involved getting across to Shetland


#3615

Once went to Norway on the ferry. The sea was so bad I swear the ship was completely on its side at times. The whole ship had a scent of sick.


#3616

Ah, ok. I was assuming Dover to Calais. My mistake.

12 hours in this weather is quite an experience


#3617

:tired_face: :face_vomiting:


#3618

I reckon this was rougher, approaching Cape Horn, December 2006. Pic taken from the bridge.
