I returned from the Fascination cruise about 10 days ago. Both my wife and I are still experiencing some vertigo from the cruise. I've never had it last this long before. Is there something that can cause prolonged vertigo/sea brain?Never had that problem.

Yes, I did read about mal de debarquement. That nails it exactly. It's like your body/mind is predicting when the ship is going to move, and adjusts for you. Only there's no ship moving!

I'd check out the instructions from several sources, then have someone help/watch you do it to make sure you get it right. Good luck!

My Dr recommended that I switch to Meclizine. To start it a day or so before the cruise, continue the dose every day, and continue for a week after disembarking. This has worked for every cruise since. The same drug is prescribed for patients with Meniere's disease, an inner ear disorder that includes vertigo as a prime symptom. Ask your Dr if this might be right for you.

None of my family has any trouble with seasickness ... and when we stop at an island, we have no problem ... but when we return home, that's when we have this slightly off-kilter feeling, which lasts a few days! It's never been bad enough to really call a "problem" ... but we all feel it for a few days.
Why doesn't it bother us on the islands? Makes no sense!
