Does sound like the inner ear infection.. I've had that before with the vertigo!! had some pills for a bit and totally went away and did not return!
Good Luck! Let us know what happens with your follow up appointment and/or tests!
take care and continue to drink lots of (tea) fluids!
Thanks for the well wishes
The Thalassemia is not the problem, it is simply worsening the problem. The problem is also not as simple as an inner ear infection - that could have been sussed out and fixed eons ago. It is a brain issue which is difficult to fix and so surgery won't be a possibility until/unless I become horribly incapacitated by the vertigo effects.
So far the meds are hit and miss. I have gotten to the point where I am taking meds to counter the side effects of other meds - this does NOT make me happy. So, I will be going in for an adjustment soon. The tests will help pinpoint better the effects and prognosis and hopefully help the docs figure out a regime of meds and therapy that will work.
Well, that is as much of an update as there is at the moment. Still at home and bored with no ability to drive, which sucks. I did get the first pass box yesterday so I have tons of tea to sort through
That and laundry and dishes!
See ya 'round!
