Quick Onset of DizzinessI am a 46 year old female. I have no major health problems. I have four older children: 20, 19, 17, and 15 years old.
I started experiencing dizziness 10 days ago. I first noticed it as I went to bed. Laying down, turning over in bed and sitting up is when it is the worst. I feel slightly disoriented when driving...like I'm not really present and find myself having to really focus on what I'm doing. I keep the radio/music off as I find it distracting. I have also noticed while driving that I turn the air to 'cooler' which is unusual as I typically am cold and have the heat turned all the way up.
For the first couple of days of this dizziness I would say I felt like my head was heavy/foggy as if I had a cold, but no cold symptoms. I wondered if there was sinus congestion in a back sinus that was not effecting my breathing, etc.
I am also aware of some unusual underlying anxiety/nervousness. Anxiety is not something I'm used to feeling.
I'm not sure if it is relevant, but I had been to the spa that day for some body waxing and when she was peeling the wax off my left eyebrow I felt an unusual pain sensation that seemed to go deeper than the surface of the skin...I've received body waxing for more than a year and never felt that discomfort before.
I work as a massage therapist and am often on my feet for 5 hours on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with the rest of the week off. I have had this schedule for a couple of years without any health complaints. When I'm focused on my work I am fine and do not generally experience dizziness. On occassion, when I lean forward I find myself falling toward the client...fortunately the edge of the table stablizes my body and I have not 'fallen' on the client and I am able to continue my work without any problems.
I worked with a holistic person about a week ago. She balances the nervous system and she said my right scapula nerves felt calcified and she felt it was mostly stemming from the C7 nerve.
I don't have much of an appetitie which is not unusual. I am able to work without stopping to eat. When I get done with seeing my clients I get something to eat because I know it's necessary, not because I'm hungry.
I tend to want something salty and/or sweet. In the morning I drink 1/2 cup of hot water with the juice of a whole lemon. An hour later I eat a strawberry/pear smoothie with 2 tabelspoons of ground flaxseed.
I Googled Homeopathy and Dizziness earlier today and came across this post:
**Dizziness throuht out the day From bronte on 2008-06-07
Hi, i am a 18 year old male and feel dizzy through out the whole day ... no matter what i do i have a dizzy sensation stuck in my head ... and increases significantly especially when i am talking with people and trying to understand what they are saying ... also it feels better when i am lying down... its more when i am standing ... please help***
One of the suggestions was carbo veg 30 thrice daily for 7 days. So, I picked some up today and have done two doses (3 pellets each) thus far. I do think the dizziness and anxiety is a little less and it seems like I am more aware of feeling my feet.
I look forward to suggestions from the experts.

Upon going to bed last night I felt a more exaggerated dizzy spell...the most intense yet. It did not last long and I did not notice much dizziness as I turned over during the night. I got up once around 3:00 am and the dizziness was very mild, I took one pellet.
There was only minute dizziness when I got up at 5:30. I felt more comfortable driving this morning, although I still prefer silence to having music. I feel very grounded with just a hint of the unusual anxiety/nervousness.
Most interesting is a mild,chronic, right posterior hip pain I've had for years is completely gone.
My question is: How long should I continue the carbo veg 30 and at what dosage?
