My boss called; seems upset that I'm gone another week.
Edited on Tue Dec-21-04 11:47 AM by HypnoToad
I'd like to be there, but it'd be difficult to move computers around when I'm having enough trouble keeping my balance while turning. While I've improved over the last 12 days, the problem still exists and is unpleasant, and brought about by some work-related factors too.

And the doctor did fax a note to him. I am not making this stuff up. I'd gloat except I feel like crap. And would. But even the counselor is in shock that *gasp* it isn't a delusional disorder. :crazy:


But I will be back later next week after the EEG with all the updates I can muster. (I forgot to tell him I bought a cane.)

3. Have you been tested for Meniere's Disease?
I'm sure you have, but I was just curious. It's an inner-ear balance disorder. I have a mild case of it.

Hope you're feeling better very soon. :hug:

7. Much thanks for the name-dropping.
I am keeping that info for my next appt with the neurologist. I have not been tested, but I'm sure he's thought about it and wanted to rule out other issues (like pinched nerves) first.

4. Did the MRI show anything?
I'm sorry you're going through this. It must be very stressful? :hug:

8. A protruding disc causing pinched nerves was one thing he did say.
That's all I know for the moment.

6. I've had that balance thing
although not at severe as yours sounds. It's a major annoyance and I hope you're getting better fast.
