I have vertigo.
After feeling increasingly more and more dizzy for a couple of weeks, I finally got myself to the doctor on Friday. (I’d been going through some medication changes, which can have dizziness as a symptom, so waiting wasn’t as silly as it might sound.) The doctor, seeing nothing wrong with my ears, nose, and throat (my usual suspects) and after asking a few questions about the nature of my dizziness, said I have vertigo. He suspects the vertigo is the result of a virus that just needs to run its course.
So he gave me a prescription for something that’s supposed to help with the dizziness. For the attendant headaches, I’m taking ibuprofen.
Except today I’m more dizzy than I was yesterday or the day before. Erg.
I called in to work sick and have spent all but about 2.5 hours since 5 p.m. yesterday in bed asleep.
I still feel really dizzy, so I’ll probably head back to bed soon. I’m hoping a day at home doing nothing BUT resting will make working possible.
If I’m still feeling dizzy tomorrow, Ed’s going to drive me to work. It’s important I work, because we have less than three weeks before we send the biggest issue of the year to the printer. Thankfully (pardon the pun), because of the Thanksgiving holiday it’s a short week. Still, I’d appreciate any prayers you can send my way. While it’s likely POSSIBLE for me to work feeling the way I do, I know it won’t be altogether pleasant.
