    vertigo, SCI connection?

    I have a c4/5 complete injury. Lately, I've experienced severe vertigo when I'm turned on my side for dressing. Does this have a sci connection? I haven't changed meds or had any other aliments.

    Can you describe it? Is the room spinning or do you feel like you are spinning?

    This is called objective vertigo. It is unlikely to be related to your spinal cord injury. Wikapedia has a pretty good article about this:

    You should see an ENT for a vestibular evaluation.
