My coach introduced me to one-foot spins this week. I did about 10 or so in practice. Plus, before this I'd been doing 3 or 4 2-foot spins each practice (about twice a week lately). Mind you, I'm just starting out on spinning - 3 revolutions is about my max. My last practice was Wed.
I'd heard that one gets used to the feeling of dizziness after the spin - just keep practicing.
However, yesterday I woke up and couldn't walk straight - kept leaning to left & falling over! No balance, felt dizzy. Went away after 15 minutes, but still felt a little dizzy for the next few hours.
Went to doctor, thinking my ever-troublesome sinuses & 6-yr old son's cold had engendered some kind of ear infection in me. But, no ear infection. A hearing test confirmed everything OK there too (phew, I'm a musician!)
Doctor says I should go to get a balance test. I tell him, hah, how bad could my balance be - I go skating regularly & I'm not falling down! Only upon leaving the office with the appointment for the test do I suddently think, hm, could spinning have something to do with this? Being 2 days later, I didn't even think of it, and besides, I really practice spinning very little, I think.
Can anyone share if they've had similar past experiences?
