Rough Week, but I am fighting to get back where I want too!

Saturday, July 13, 2013

I have been really sick all week. I started having these terrible dizzy spells. It made it very hard to do anything. Meds aren't doing much. I decide this morning that I wasn't going to let this thing keep me down. Even with the pain, I will do my best. I have been eating healthy planning my meals, checking it to make sure it is well balance. I didn't lose any weight this week for my weigh in. So this morning when I woke up, to dizzy to raise my head from my pillow, I was determined to beat it. I would raise slowly up and sit until the dizziness left me, then I would do an exercise on my bed. I kept it up for 90 minutes. This time didn't include my having to stop and get over each dizzy spell. I did some walking with the aid of my walker with a seat. I took my time and tried not to look up or down. I still had dizziness as I walked. Hubbie stayed close by and helped me stay upright. lol I am tired this evening. I do feel like I did accomplish something good today. I have to beat this dizziness. The doctors haven't found the cause. Say a prayer for me to get better. It is hard to stay up and cook and move in general. emoticon

    Bravo! I hope you solve this mystery soon. Searching the Web (NIH, WebMD, Mayo Clinic, etc.) might help lead to some ideas. Shame on the doctors for not sticking to it until they did! You should keep pestering them about it until they do something.

    I hope the doctors find the reason for your dizziness very soon. Take it easy and don't push yourself, soon enough you will be back to it.

Keep up the good work and much success on your journey!

    So very sorry to hear this.
I woke up one day with dizziness. No explanation why. I saw a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist and he diagnosed Meneire's Disease. But the medication didn't work :( But someone gave me a great tip -to go to a dizziness clinic. They put this helmet on my head and started manipulating my head. She said the way my eyes moved told her that these crystals in my middle ear were out of place, causing me dizziness and balance problems. These crystals in the middle ear and critical for your balance and positioning in space. So with manipulations of my head, which made me sick almost to the point of throwing up, but when she was done, I had no more symptoms!! She said to keep my head elevated for two days to make sure the crystals stay put. If I still had some symptoms, I could come for another treatment. It was expensive, but so worth it. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo was what I had. If you google that, it will lead you to a great article on it.
For sure you need to see someone on this. It sounds like you have what I did.
Take care of yourself, feel better soon!
