    I'm not diabetic, but have had some issues with blood sugar, mostly overnight. Thanks! I drank coffee on Friday and it made it worse, so I cut it out. Oddly enough, I apparently don't drink coffee regularly enough to cause any withdrawal symptoms! It's been 5 days and nothing really

Are you taking stuff like that or actual RX allergy meds? Still sneezing for days over here, the struggle is real.
    Basically zyrtek and benadryl. Started it back up and I don't think that's the issue - I think lifting is actually the issue! LOL details below

    Nice lifts, and congrats on the PR. I hear you on focus, maybe it's the time of year, but I need a kick in the ass a lot more often when it comes to working out. Preworkouts help with a bit with that energy boost, but it's more of the matter of just getting started. I need louder music. :P
    Ding ding! It is vertigo!

    Bench November 13
    PR's:
    121x1 10/25/17
    110x6 10/9/17

    Paused Bench
    113x3 11/7/17
    121x1 10/25/17


    Flat Bench, Medium Grip
    45x10
    55x6
    65x4
    75x2
    95x1

    Paused
    110x1
    118x1
    123x1 - PR

    Touch and Go
    100x6
    105x6



    Dumbbell Bench Press
    25's x8
    30's x8
    35's x8

    Dumbbell Row
    2x35's x12
    35's x10

    Dumbbell Shrug
    3x50's x12

    Rear Delts
    2x 15's x12

    Hammer Curls
    3x20's x12

    So the verdict is vertigo. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) to be specific. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-...n/con-20028216

    Benching was kind of awful. Every time I got down on the bench it happened. I was able to keep it together for my sets and even a PR, but apparently continuing to get into those positions make it worse. Tuesday I was supposed to squat but I felt unsteady and borderline dizzy all day, enough that I went to the doctor's office and paid the enormous co-pay because I'm on a high deductible plan.

    Basically, we did some voodoo called the Epley Manuever



    The video makes it look less voodoo than it felt. Yes, my eyes apparently looked like that. It seems I have issues in both ears, so I'll probably have to do it again on the other side if I'm not back to normal by end of day tomorrow. No bending over, no laying flat or inverted, have to sleep with extra pillows. With any luck, I should be back to normal by Sunday? If not, then I have to go to physical therapy. Anyway, it wasn't blood sugar, allergy meds or caffeine. I'm still off caffeine incidentally. Maybe I'll take break from it. Anyway, Wade is still shaking his head at my antics.

    Oh crap, vertigo! I'm impressed you're able to lift when that's bothering you. My dad had that happen a few times and he was down and out for the day. Is there something that triggers it or does it just kinda happen sometimes?

    I had a bad case of vertigo that came out of nowhere, when it first hit me, I couldn't get out of bed for several days! After that first episode, it has came and went, and each time it wasn't as bad as the first time. I went to a doc, who did all kinds of tests, then sent me to a therapist. Once that was ruled out my doc said it was allergy related and told me to take Allegra D whenever it came on. Now I still get it off and on, but it is very slight and manageable now, I might feel it in the am, but it goes away.. I can function. But when it first hit me, at around age 50, it was brutal!

    I'm actually pretty impressed myself. And glad I didn't go for 93% of max singles in squat. I think most people get triggered somehow (blow to the head, etc.?) but I don't remember anything specific, except one day I woke up dizzy, and then day tried to do decline which totally threw me into hell. I wasn't pleased to hear this happens more in older people. WTF?

    Weird. Mine is pretty much the mechanics of that crystal bumping into all my brain sensors. Allergy pills didn't make a difference really either way, coffee seemed to exacerbate it but probably because the caffeine added to my anxiety at the world not staying still LOL

    Vertigo. You should watch the Hitchcock film, apparently it's good.

    Probably a wise move not to squat. With benching the worst that happens is you crush yourself a little with the bar (and I don't think 123 would kill you). With squatting, you could break your back or some chit. Congrats on bench pr btw. I would love to hit 123 (or 125... sigh, someday, been stuck at 115 since before my cut).

    You had a Dix-Hallpike test which is used to diagnose BPPV. You'll have a weird horizontal nystagmus (pupils shaking left to right) at the end of the maneuver because your vestibular system (ears and brain, balance system) gets confused and your eyes try to compensate to what the hell is going on.

    The Epley maneuver is used to treat it along with more regular Brandt-Daroff exercises. They happen for no particular reason but the cause is believed to be otoliths (small ear stones) floating around in your semicircular canals in the ear making your brain think you're traveling in different axes than your eyes think you are. If it goes away, which it often does, you should be okay but you might get it again in the future - I'm surprised you actually had a nystagmus though.

    There's some drugs that are sometimes prescribed like cyclizine, betahistine etc. that can help with symptoms but BPPV lasts for seconds so I assume you aren't encountering your symptoms very frequently.

    Neat!
    I didn't know that was a thing (vertigo yes, ear crystals no). I hope doing this for both sides fixes it.

    Came in to see vertigo. Ugh Feel better soon!

    I had it chronically for 4 years. Vertigo is awful. I had several full-blown attacks, where my body went into emergency crisis mode and took power away from my limbs to protect my core, so I'd just collapse on the floor. I had the nystagmus, eyes rolling around uncontrollably, that was loads of fun. Hard core motion sickness and puking. Do not recommend/10. Outside of those couple of major attacks, I spent most of those four years just perpetually on the edge of motion sickness even when sitting still. My brain was utterly fukked up. If I was watching tv and the camera would pan to the left, I'd literally fall out of my seat to the right. If I was out somewhere, like at a grocery store, and the tiles on the floor would change colors, my brain would try to have me step up or down when the color changed, so I spent a lot of time stumbling around like a drunk in public. There were lots of weird things going on, my brain just could not figure out which end was up.

    Anyway. Mine was not BPPV, no crystals, so unfortunately Epley didn't help me in the slightest. Mine was a symptom of my (at the time undiagnosed) celiac disease. The funny thing is, all these years later, if I do accidentally get into gluten, I still get dizziness / instability as one of my symptoms.

    Fun fact: 1 out of every 3 people will get vertigo at some point in their lives. For most people, the cause is a virus that settles in their inner ear, and lasts a matter of days or a few weeks at worst.
