but that's what happens to me if I stand too long especially when I try too hard to stand STILL. My stroke left me with permanent vertigo. I was directed to sit down as soon as I recognize the symptoms coming on... uh huh. WHERE? ...wth do you sit down in grocery stores, etc.? ...just flop down on the floor..?
That's why I have to travel with a seated walker. it only takes a few minutes for the dizziness to pass.. but during that time falling from even just a standing position can break bones if you can't "catch yourself". Walking (crossing streets and such -- even negotiating the 13 stairs to get into my 2nd floor apartment has become a challenge.
Poor Girl... it's all so embarrassing since most people don't understand.
