Dizzyness after a cruise
Hey everyone I came back from a 3 day cruise with RC Monarch of the Seas. It is day 9 that i have come back from the cruise. I still have this swaying sensation and pulling/pushing sensation all the time. This was my first cruise.. ugh and may be the last since this feeling isnt so pleasant. :(

I went to the doctors and they prescribed the vertigo drug Beta-Histine and I have been taking it for five days and really hasn't done much. Also, i started feeling better on monday and all of a sudden i'm feeling dizzy againn!

Any help would be great :)

Not much help anyone can offer you about this. It is something that affects a very small amount of cruisers and it can take a while to go away. It is a medical condition.

.... not fun!
Its been about 2 weeks and 2 days and its still here!!!

I tried exercising and it takes away the dizziness for sometime but eventually comes back. I decided to stop taking SERC and see if that helps. Anyone got any other suggestions???

Sorry to hear you're still experiencing this. It might be something unrelated, or perhaps a different prescribed medication is needed. I strongly suggest that you see your doctor again, if you haven't already. Please let us know how it turns out -- and I hope you're feeling better soon.

I also suffer from this issue. Try taking a decongestant like sudafed or claritin. This decreases the pressure in your ears. Also drink lots of water. You are probably dehydrated from the combinaion of heat. salt and alcohol. I hope you feel better. My house is rocking even as we speak. I find that the problem is intensified if I have to fly home from the port.

Have you consulted your doctor again? I don't mean to scare you, yet it could be something else. Happened to me, and a new medication took care of it.

I have to agree. If it's been3weeks, it's no longer related to your cruise.
