Default Why am I dizzy after the cruise.

Hello,
Help. Why am I dizzy after the cruise. I feel like I am still on the boat. The swaying and rocking. I know I partyed way too much but this can;t be a hangover. I know what that feel like and this is not it. What should I take for this. No it is not Norwalk, I don't have any of those symptoms either.

Not at all an unusual occurance I think. I rarely have any problems getting my sea legs. The motion on the ship doesn't seem to bother me.
However on several occassions when returning home it takes me a few days to get my land legs back. I still feel like I'm moving, especially if I have lots of work to do staring at the computer screen.
Not to worry. It does go away in a couple of days.

Regards,
Kuki

don't worry, what you are feeling is totally normal. it usually takes a couple of days for your body to re-adjust to being on land

CabbBeth ...

It's called Land Vertigo. It goes away after a while.

I carry Dramimine with me and take it an hour BEFORE I GET OFF THE BOAT. Works for me.

Coming thru Panama Canal with rain and mist, then hitting the Atlantic/Caribbean with 25 foot waves, we docked in Aruba and I thought I was going to fall to the ground when we disembarked!!!! Found the original Amstel beer made there, had a couple, and it did help. You may also want to try ear plugs, if you do a lot of water sports...and use the swimmer's ear drip, it clears the water up from your ears and prevents any infection.
Bon Voyage!!!

Have been told this is perfectly normal. Not unusual for me, I'm dizzy all the time:-)
