    dizziness? What gives? I don't have fever, though my temp is low--96.8--which kind of tells me that I will have a fever, a very high fever.

    This started late last night, I thought I was just tired, but that's not it. Last night it was so bad, it was making me feel nauseous, this morning, it's not as bad yet.

    I feel very heavy, and kind of 'swimmy'. The dizziness is not as bad as it was, but earlier this morning I had woken up, and as soon as I sat up in bed, the dizziness and nausea started in. That was about 5:30.

    I do have a bit of a cough, but I smoke, so that's probably the reason for that.

    So what would cause a sudden onset of severe dizziness, so bad that it causes nausea?

    also inner ear infection - would cause the fever and the dizziness

    I had that two weeks ago, inner ear infection, sinus infection and brochitis.

    Go to your nearest express care if you can not get a hold of your family doctor.

    Quote:The back of my neck/head feels 'swollen', but I don't notice any swollen glands back there. I'm not so much dizzy now, but I feel like I'm in a fog I guess. I guess it is still kind of dizziness, but not as bad as it was.

    I just don't feel 'right', that's my problem! [​IMG]

    Are you kidding? They close the whole town down on Friday at 4 pm, there's nothing open around here. And of course it's a holiday weekend, I don't know if the holiday will affect the dr. office or not.

    All you can do is to call or go to the ER.
