I've been having all these little attacks of dizziness lately. I'm not really appreciating them. Some of them even make me seriously lose my balance. I'm terrified near stairs now. I'm not enjoying this. Jexy thinks that I messed with my inner ear when I fell. I think maybe I have another ear infection. Or maybe I have the plague. Hmmmmm.

Do you, by chance, have Fibromyalgia?

I have Fibromyalgia and I have randomly attacking dizzy spells that also have hot flashes, nausea and short of breath with them....apparently those symptoms can occur with fibromyalgia. I can't even lift my arms past my bust line anymore without feeling dizzy.

I understand how you feel.

I sometimes suffer from labyrinthitis; I've had it so bad that I can't walk without leaning on a wall.

Your doctor might be able to prescribe something to help - for my recent bout of labyrinthitis** I had Motilium, which did in fact help me (it gave me headaches, but I can deal with those). He prefers to use Stemetil but I get some side effects from that.

** (now i know what it is, unless it's a mild dose, I generally get off to the family GP pretty quick - generally a day or so because he's very popular)

I'm like one of those old ladies who always plays the exact same lottery numbers. Sooner or later, they're due to come up!

You should vote for Parkinson's

Sooner or later, everyone gets Parkinson's. Brain tumor, maybe, but Parkinson's, absolutely.
