Ohio attorney general says vertigo has struck before

COLUMBUS: Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said he has had other bouts of vertigo before the one that landed him in the hospital last week.

DeWine, who returned to work this week, told WBNS-TV in Columbus that he doesn’t expect it to affect his re-election campaign this year.

He was hospitalized overnight Friday in Cincinnati after an onset of vertigo prevented him from delivering a luncheon speech.

“I hadn’t started speaking yet, but I could tell it was coming on and I told them, ‘Look, I just can’t do this.’ I can gut out most anything with a speech; I’ve done it before no matter how bad I feel, but when you can’t stand up, you just can’t give a speech,” DeWine said.

The 67-year-old Ohio public figure said he has had vertigo several times. Vertigo causes a dizzy feeling that your surroundings are spinning but usually isn’t considered a serious medical problem.

DeWine said his doctor thinks his bouts are related to recurring migraine headaches.

“For me, it usually lasts around five hours and I’m out of it,” DeWine said. “By 6 o’clock Friday night, I was fine and I wanted to go home.”

But DeWine said his wife, Fran, and his doctors wanted him to remain overnight.

DeWine said he got medical treatment a year ago when he felt severe nausea while he and family were riding the rapids through the Grand Canyon.

“I’ve had it several times and it comes on fairly quickly,” DeWine said. “Fortunately, it gives you enough warning that you can sit down. It comes on quickly and there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason that I can figure out. A lot of people have a vertigo story, and it’s never fun.”
