Vertigo

An old and nasty friend is back. For the last few weeks, I’ve been experiencing vertigo, dizziness, lightheadedness, and eye pain. I’m at my wit’s end, frustrated. All the things I’ve learned in the past for managing it are not working. I’ve contacted the doctor who helped me through the worst vertigo of my life from last year, so we’ll see how it works out.
I don’t understand why doctors haven’t put me through testing for the past decade I’ve been complaining of diziness. This site from Vestibular Disorders provides good information.
I’m constantly on the verge of tears because I have to support my family of five between my teleco job and freelance work. Hubby has been out of a job for over a year and I don’t know when he’ll find one. When I feel sick like this, I can’t work. Then as soon as I feel better, I’m playing catch up. Hate it when things are out of my control and Paul is doing everything possible to find a job.

    Man Meryl,
    That’s really tough. I know how you feel. I was in the same position as you and Paul awhile back. I was unemployed and my wife was supporting us (myself and two kids). BTW, does Paul have any background in healthcare and IT ?. You might want to check this link out:

    It’s pretty much what I do for a living.
    Regards,
    Bert

    I have vertigo… and the only solution was to have shunt or clamp on the semi-circular tubes. Works wonders for my twin and me.
