How do you handle dizzy spells?

I have dizzy spells pretty often. Usually pretty strong and daily. It’s gotten worse in the last year. I can’t tell the difference between dizzy spells attributed to the Fibro getting worse, or from all the medications. I can be fine one moment then I’ll turn my head or stand up and it starts. Everything swims…or wobbles…or bounces. and that can last for minutes… or hours. There are days when I don’t dare drive, sometimes not even walk up the stairs to the bedroom. I can’t tell when, or if, it will hit.  Do others have similar problems? are there ways to reduce the intensity of the attack? are there ways to know when one is going to hit? are there ways to identify what is causing the attacks? I know, lots more questions than answers. or even comments. Let me know what you think!
