Default Habituation Exercises for Dizziness

Hi there. I'm fairly new to this board but I will pitch in and say what my experience is regarding nausea and PCS. My initial nausea was due to dizziness or a sense of lightheadedness after my fall, especially when I was moving in a vehicle. The worst of it gradually went away, but even now, 3 months post fall, I do still experience lightheadedness and sometimes nausea.

What's helping me now with this is a set of "Habituation Exercises" I got from a physiotherapist specializing in balance and dizziness. These are like exercises figure skaters do in order to be able to spin without getting dizzy. The exercises seem a bit silly, but they are really working for me. It's like I retraining my brain to orient itself after moving and I'm feeling better.

I had a setback a couple of weeks ago and stopped the exercises and the dizziness returned. Since starting up again, I can definitely say they are helping.

Good luck
MargN

I use probably some of the same type for dizziness.

I also do some things that I would never think I could again thanks to
Physical Therapy. So they are some of the best things that have
happened to me.

I had horrible nausea & vomitting after my TBI last year. I couldn't eat or even drink . I took RX meds -- Compazine suppositories & a few injections.
this went in cycles--of very bad few days after TBI & in following weeks to days of feeling a bit better when I'd try to eat, drink. then feeling really sick w/ nausea for while.
I still get episodes of Nausea & vomiting .

GINGER is helpful --if you can get it down. there are other things that can help too.

I was extremely nauseous for the first month and a half after my accident. I lost about 15 lbs. The doctors perscribed me a nausea medication that they persribed to chemo patients but it did absolutely nothing. During that time I basically filled up on Jamba Juice so that I could get something in my system. Eventually the nausea started going away about three weeks ago. Im on month three now and occassionally get bouts of minor nausea but nothing compared to how it was. Hang in there.
