Water park woes!

I had a little bit of an embarrassing moment today, my boyfriend thought it was just hilarious. I went down a twisty water slide today ( big mistake!) not only did it bring up major dizziness and nausea it also caused me to end up upside down in 3 feet of water extremely confused and @&$ backward. After I managed to with a combined effort from my boyfriend to upright myself out of the water with no help from the 3 life guards surrounding me I was happy. I have now opted out of any future water slide excursions dizziness and Ms combined has retired me I'll stick to the kiddy pools.

We all live and learn, @sonia1984 . If we don't try these things, we'll never know what we can and can't do. The lifeguards probably saw you glide through the water like a mermaid. :wink:


But it may not have been the MS. I had something similar in a Pilates class - instant nausea and dizziness. It turned out to be Benign Positional Vertigo. Apparently very common and distinguishable from other forms of vertigo by the fact that it's set off by a specific movement. The crystals in the ear are disturbed, causing sudden dizziness and nausea. xx
