Our DIL was telling us tonight that she has been having spells of a weird type of vertigo where she feels like her head is rocking back and forth from side to side, followed by a headache which lasts about 10-15 minutes, then it goes away. She is also unusually tired. She is the one who is married to our son who was recently diagnosed as infertile but they did a pregnancy test anyway and it was negative. They have checked her ears and sinuses and done a few other simple tests. She is having lab work run on Thursday. In the meantime has anyone ever had or heard of anything like this?

It doesn't really sound like it, but maybe look up mal de debarquement. It is a feeling of seasickness that usually follows a trip at sea but not always.

My older coworker had this in his 60s...& it led to some hearing loss.

I also have a sorority sister who was in her mid 20s when she got vertigo....just about same thing as my coworker but it didn't cause hearing loss. She still gets spells of it.

Maybe DIL should see a doctor& one who knows what they are doing

Migraine?

It could be a migraine. Dizziness is a common symptom, and the headaches don't always last a long time. If she's getting these short headaches frequently, it could also be cluster headaches.
