Dizziness for more than 24 hours after return from trip? Anyone experienced this?

Jump to last reply

Please don't chasten me for not consulting a doctor (I have already made an appointment), but I am curious if anyone else experiences dizziness after transcontinental trips.

Ever since we got back (Tuesday night about 10pm Denver time), I have felt somewhat dizzy. As if objects around me (my desk, the walls, etc.) are moving although they are obviously not. My sense of balance also feels "off" and if I stand up straight for very long I start feeling like I might fall over...

I'm 25 and in very good physical condition. I'm wondering, could this be some sort of prolonged jetlag (I slept very poorly on our trip) or perhaps re-adjusting to the high altitude here?

I wasn't able to get an appointment until Saturday afternoon (and I am hoping these symptoms will be gone by then!!), but in the meantime I am a little nervous and hoping that others may have experienced something like this.
