Case Study – Vertigo: Carole

disclaimer: results may vary

Carole had suffered from migraine when she was in her teens, and then Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) when she was in her 20’s and now in her 30’s – vertigo.

Carole explained how she had suffered from vertigo twice a year for the last six years.  And then she told me how she had also suffered from migraine and IBS in the past.  The neurological wave had moved into different systems of her body, causing different problems at different times.

When Carole was suffering from vertigo, she couldn’t leave her house because she could hardly stand up.  Even a walking stick could not help her to get about.  At home, she constantly fell into walls and banisters.  Carol felt ill when she was suffering from vertigo; it wasn’t just a case of being dizzy.

Like so many people with similar illnesses, Carole was concerned that her employees might not understand that she was truly ill.    It was difficult to explain this illness. ‘Vertigo’ sounds like it isn’t too bad, but there are often many other symptoms that happen during an attack, in addition to the crazy dizziness.  There can be many other symptoms like feeling dreadfully ill, just like having influenza, depression, nausea, headache, neuralgic pain and odd symptoms, such as not being able to stop crying.  The difficulty is that unlike the common cold, these attacks can last for weeks, in Carole’s case, three weeks at a time.

On each occasion, Carole received a course of antibiotics for a ‘suspected middle ear infection’ from her GP.  Each time, after about three weeks, the condition disappeared.

This was my first experience in dealing with vertigo, and it was the first time I wondered whether vertigo could indeed be caused by a wave of neurological activity.  Carole was very interested in the work I was developing, and she was keen to try out Resolution Magic.  It might work, but if it didn’t, it would certainly do no harm.

As it turned out, Resolution Magic worked really quickly for Carole.  When the next attack came, Carole took time off work, and did the exercises every 1-2 hours when she was awake.  That episode lasted only two weeks, instead of three.  The second attack lasted only a couple of days, and Carole was thrilled to get back to work so quickly.  After that, Carole could send it packing at the first signs, even when the attacks began at work. She simply excused herself for a few moments, and then after a half-a minute of exercises, she was back to work.

Some neurologists have indeed considered vertigo as being a ‘migraine of the ears’, and I think that is exactly what it is.  When it occurs at the same time as a migraine attack, it is so clearly linked.  However, when it occurs on its own, it is commonly regarded as “middle ear infection”.  Middle ear infection can’t be seen from the outside, so the diagnosis can’t be proven or disproven.
