Hi all,

In the middle of the night Saturday/Sunday I woke up to go to the bathroom. I found that I had incredible vertigo and ended up going to the emergency room.

After spending the day there, and having multiple scans including an MRI, CT scan and X-rays, I was found to not have anything major like a stroke, heart attack or brain tumor.

That’s good news,

The other thing is that they’re not conclusive as to what is causing the vertigo,

Presently I’m a home and awaiting a vertigo medicine that will help ear crystals, which is the conclusion they’ve come to. I have to start physical therapy next week. Apparently this is quite common.

I am going to take a few days off writing to process all this.

See you soon!

LA

  1. I’m hearing of increasing numbers suffering from Labyrinthitis – it sounds absolutely awful. I wish you a speedy & full recovery. If you’re not able to read, I hope someone has hooked you up with a supply of audio books to help pass the time.

  2. Have dealt with this as well. Crystals was the diagnosis for me too..had to do ten minute “exercises” three times a day for a few months and then it was fine, thank God! I also felt that (personally) not drinking enough water may have had something to do with it.

      1. Boy, I sure didn’t get rehab..what a rip off!! (Isn’t there that insurance that Joe Namath sells on TV that covers rehab that includes a back massage, pedicure and dinner deliveries..? I’m tellin’ ya, it sounds amazing!😂) Yeah, no–I was sent home by the ENT to sit in my lazy boy chair for a day with one sheet of xeroxed paper with my head exercises on it..HA. I think our insurance must be called “Too bad for U-BLUE” … no paperwork hassles because you pay for everything and get nothing! 🤨 FEEL BETTER! This will pass…I promise!
