No fun getting old. I have slowed up a lot.Yesterday I finally got back to work on the 32. just don't have the drive I use to have. I seam look forward in laying down to take a nap a couple times a day. I just turn 81 and don't like it. Staying home and no one to talk to don't help also. Use to go early in the morning to get coffee and talk to friends now no more. Coffee shop close up. I hate wearing that mast, flogs up my glasses then can't see where I am going. I think that a bunch of crap anyway. What this world coming to anyway. Well I guess its time for another nap.

Sorry to hear about your illness, keep fighting it. About 20 yrs ago I was diagnosed with atypical Meniere's Disease(my neurologist said the only way to prove it was an autopsy and he said most patients find that unacceptable).
I stay off of carnival rides and try not to do movements that aggravate it. I feel more comfortable standing next to a wall rather than the middle of the room.
I always feel as if the room is slightly revolving, but I think over time my brain has compensated for this feeling and I am able to function normally. Fortunately I have little to no issues when Iím sitting or driving.

Sorry to hear of your illness. Yes we are all getting up there. I had vertigo a few years back and one day I fell off my tractor going down an incline landing on my head and although banged up pretty badly, the vertigo was gone. Not recommending that treatment. I know there are many causes for the condition. Praying for the best for you.

WOW, I'm 86 and other than a little slower, I'm up and at it by 8am every day with something to do. Have garage heater so can work on cars. Right now it's shovel snow every day. We have had 48" so far this year with lots more on way this weekend. Enjoy that nice warm Ca weather.

Don't sell your cars!. This will probably pass. Even if you are not up to driving or even riding in them, sometimes its cathartic just to go out to the garage and admire these old works of art. I seldom drive any of my old cars, traffic conditions and spending most of my life driving has taken a lot of the fun out of it but I still enjoy just waxing or piddling with them.

There are a number of things that can cause vertigo some can be fixed or at least treated. Here's hoping your condition is a simple fix

Balance is controlled by both of your inner ears. There are small loose nodule like things called otoliths (think of it as "rocks in your head) that move around in your inner ear as your position changes and tiny hairs transmit their position to your brain and that is how you maintain your balance. If one side has a problem it can cause your imbalance. These otoliths can get stuck and mess up your balance when side doesn't agree with the other. That is how the positioning exercises can help, by freeing up "stuck" otoliths...
As others said, don't sell your cars yet, it MAY be something simple, I hope so. Good luck!
