Watched Free Solo last night.
Astonishing achievement - must be up there with the best individual sport or physical achievement in human history.

It is a fantastic documentary and an incredible athletic achievement but anyone who suffers from vertigo will want to look away at particular points in the doc.

In a similar vein, The Dawn Wall on Netflix is worth a look.

Common misconception. Vertigo = fear of heights.

Vertigo is a balance issue in your inner ear that makes you feel dizy and sick.

In fairness that is not going to be helpful in combination with heights but not related.

Fear of heights is more a fear of an urge to jump.

As someone who's had bouts of vertigo I know well what it is.

Anyone know of a cure for Vertigo, the balance/ear version, or even a treatment that works for it or even eases it.

All depends on what is causing the problem in the first place.

But, a good place to start....
