I have this several times. Unfortunately I usually panic which makes me immediately want to take xanax and I don't allow myself to push through and compensate so I am not much help on what to do in that situation. The only time I pushed through, I did yes have a full blown vertigo attack which I suppose caused me to avoid furthering the learned situation. MAV is frustrating!!
I have tried to push through, it usually for me happens in situations where I'm around a lot of people and can't just flee the area or I'll stand out like a sore thumb. Lol. I definitely feel for ya, it's a weird sensation that's hard to put your finger on why your brain is doing that. Happens when I'm about to fall asleep sometimes too. Hang in there!
