    I'm using a balance ball and trying to wobble my head about more as I move arround.

    My vertigo seems linked to migraines though, and came on very suddenly. Not sure if this is as likely to respond to graded wobble-cise.

    Cranial osteopathy (a physical therapy) has been treating this kind of thing for decades. It's not a new discovery, it's just new to the medical establishment. It can be triggered by almost any kind of trauma - physical (including surgery), chemical (including anaesthetic and other pharmaceuticals), biological, emotional, you name it, hits the central nervous system, and via the meninges and the fasciae it can affect the entire body. It seems to be the critical process in my fibro and it's clear to me that it's the underlying problem in some percentage of CFS/fibro cases, but until the research is integrated who knows whether that figure is 5% or 80%...
