My Friend is Dizzy

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Suzanne on the first floor ended up at the hospital early this morning beause she got out of bed and fell flat on the floor. She was so dizzy she couldn't walk so she crawled to the door and unlocked it, then called her son. He came right over and called the ambulance. She has an inner ear infection but luckily, she didn't have an earache. I had one before and it was awful. She came home at noon so we all stopped and checked on her. She was sitting in her recliner drinking water, waiting for her son to bring her medication. She'll be better in a couple days.

    I hope she feels better soon and am very glad that she has a support system to help her. I started having episodes like that a few months ago and unfortunately they are happening fairly regularly - it is a major disruption to normal life! The doc thinks it is something called "meniere's disease" (hate anything that has "disease" in the name!) which involves an inner ear imbalance. No one knows what causes it and it is usually managed with medication (a diuretic to remove fluid from the inner ear).

    Life happens, thank God she has someone who could assist her. Good to hear that she's going to be all right.
