my world is spinnnnnning

Hey Everyone- So I know I promised I was back, and well...I haven't posted in awhile.

The thing is- I was diagnosed with vertigo and a double ear infection yesterday...and it sucks! I have never in my life experience anything as shitty as this vertigo thing. For those of you who don't know what it is, its a type of dizziness where you feel like the room is constantly spinning- much like as when you are wasted and get the 'spins'. My Dr. said it was most likely brought on by my ear infections, so its good to know I'm not going crazy! She put me on antibiotics and some crazy dizzy medicine that knocks me out. I have been home sick for the past 2 days and haven't been doing much of anything. I haven't had any dizzy spells yet today though, so I'm hoping I can get back to work tomorrow, and then get on with the week to finally enjoy my 4th of July weekend back home in Maine.

As for my band I have an appointment Thursday @ 9am for a checkup. I am going to have them run a complete blood work up on me to check my cholesterol, thyroid, vitamin levels...all that good stuff. Let's hope everything comes back OK. The good news is, with all this crazy dizziness I haven't felt much like eating and am down 3 lbs! wahooo!

I hope everyone is having a good week, and has an awesome 4th of July. I will let you know how my appt goes Thursday! xxoo


  1. Oh, I am SO SORRY - I have vertigo - haven't had an episode in a few years, but it SUCKS! Have they adjusted you yet? There is a completely non-invasive proceedure that just involves tipping you upside down and helping the crystals go back into place... I never got the antibiotics but then again, didn't have the ear infections... So sorry! That is worse than anything... Hang in there!

  2. I'm sorry about the ear infections and vertigo. :( I hope you are feeling back to normal tomorrow. And I hope your appointment goes well!

  3. I had the same thing 2 winters ago, and I was 7mos pregnant. Not fun at ALL. I hope you get to feeling better really quickly, that vertigo shit is no joke

  4. I know all about vertigo. I need an adenoidectomy badly and because of them it causes me to have fluid in my ears which leads to migraines in my eardrum and vertigo. I have been dealing with it on and off for several years and I feel for you! I hope you feel betters soon.

  5. I hope you're feeling better now! I had that happen earlier this year and it's the worst feeling!!!

  6. Feel better quick's a holiday weekend.
