Well, my vertigo, dizziness, unbalance, etc. has been diagnosed. Its a form of Meneieres Disease.
Through my research I've found, it affects people usually between the ages of 40-60 ~ I am at the closer to 60 end of that spectrum. Usually one ear at a time ~ mine is the right. But in about 1/2 the folks, could go to other ear also. They don't know what causes it but its an inbalance of a special fluid in a canal in the inner ear.
It could come and go ~ it could come, worsen, and cause permanent damage. Symptoms ~ vertigo, unbalance, ringing in ears, and heaviness in ear. I've had all at different times since this started ~ the heaviness feels really weird, kinda like your ear is full of water.
There is medication to help with the dizziness and a water pill to take to maybe help with the fluid inbalance. I have both. There isn't a cure. Its a learn to live and deal with it type issue.
I've read of things you can do to possibly help ~
No fizzy drinks (goodbye diet coke & diet sprite)
No caffeine (thrilled they make decaf tea, yeah it has a tiny bit but...)
No alcohol or smoking (that was easy, since its a non issue)
Cutting back on salt could help
So, I am praying the worst is what I've experienced so far. It was getting better and bam, it hit again yesterday. So its going to be very unpredictable.
I am thankful that I can still cross stitch. My glasses bother me, so I may need to go back to eye dr. if that continues.
Its funny to be walking from point A to point B and suddenly swerve. Kinda like walking on a boat or a bus. Definite unbalance.
Theres a lot of info people have put on pinterest too ~ I found some funny cartoons ~
