Are you wondering if Covid and dizziness are related? I’ll tell you want happened to me. I got covid in October (2021), and despite being double vaccinated and being genreally very healthy, eating well and taking a high dose of vitamin D, I was very poorly with it. Probably the most ill I’ve been in over 20 years, possibly ever. It was horrid. Everything hurt, from my bones, to my eye balls.
After about 2 or 3 weeks I began to get back to normal, and was back at work and functioning pretty much as normal. Although I did keep getting dizzy spells. I kept leaving it until mid December when I was so dizzy (not all the time) that I regularly felt sick. I spoke to my GP who said it was some kind of vertigo. Nothing much you can do about it.
I kept moaning at home, in the end, my husband told me to get my ears checked, which I did, with a lovely ear specialist in Wilmslow. He looked down my ears and said the outer bit was lovely and clean. But he looked closer, behind my ear drum, and asked, “When did you have Covid?” and I said, “How do you know I’ve had Covid?” and he said behind my eardrums was all blocked up with a kind of mucus thing, and he’s seeing it all the time in post-Covid.
Ah covid, the gift that just keeps on giving ….
He suggested I get some kind of squirt up the nose Sudafed type thing to try to clear it, or he said you can do that old-fashioned thing of putting your head over a bowl of hot water with eucalyptus and put a towel over, and breathe in, to try to clear all those nose/ear passages. So obviously that’s the route I chose.
Eucalyptus is such a magic oil, I love it, and it’s one of the oils that helped me get my sense of smell back on track after I lost that during Covid (Covid, you really a total sh1t!!). Find out more about getting your smell back here.
This helped my dizziness enormously, and it might be something you want to try too. You can read more about eucalyptus here. I did it a few times over the period of a couple of weeks, and the dizziness really really reduced. It does still come back a bit, but nothing like what it was.
If you’d like some great quality eucalyptus oil, I can send you a 5ml bottle for £4.95, enough for a good few steaming sessions. It’s great to drop a few drops into the bottom of your shower too, so that you get a gorgeous, steamy scented shower that helps to unblock you. Message me if you’d like some.
And you can ready more about Covid and dizziness on the NHS website here. Make sure you are super-hydrated, and not ignoring something else that could be causing it, like low iron.
Other ways in which Covid just keeps on giving is hair loss, rubbish sleep (try my sleep spray for this) and a persistent dryness on my lip that comes and goes; I will follow up with more blogs soon. Let me know how it is affecting you, and let’s try to solve all this horrid lasting issues together.
