Vertigo...

I have had a sinus and inner ear infection for five days. On day four (yesterday) I went to the doctor and got an antibiotic. I also got a tetanus/pertussis vaccination booster and a flu shot because the last time I went to the doctor for myself was a year ago. Needless to say I have been pretty miserable for the past two days. The worst  part has been the dizziness. I don't know if it's because of the inner ear, or the sinus pressure, or the medication, or all three, but I have just been dizzy for three days. It's yucky. I kept waking up last night feeling like I was falling out of the bed. Caite was a lifesaver today, she picked up my kids from school and made dinner for us all. I am very grateful, because I don't think driving would have been a good idea for me today. And now I'll be done posting because the letters are starting to spin around on the screen...

Chrissy, if this persists go immediately to someone who knows how to do the Epley Maneuver. I had an ongoing case of vertigo a few years ago and my ENT performed this simple head maneuver on me and it cleared right up. It seems like voodoo but it really works. Don't suffer too long.

Oh yuck! I hope you're feeling better today!
