It's hard to know sometimes if the symptoms you feel are truely as bad as the seem. I've been having a rough coupla of weeks the issues with Jon aside. Friday the week before last I started feeling dizzy. Just a mild sense of numbness and tingling in the ears. The feeling you get when you get up too fast. I felt it again on Saturday, but didn't think much of it, I figured it was lack of sleep. But sunday- woahboy. Driving was torture, I couldn't stand it. Every move HURT my head. It wasn't like a headache, more like a motional pain. It didn't hurt unless I moved. I was with Jon and driving home was a real challenge- what normally takes 3 hours took over 6. Monday, employee health sent me home with Meclazine (like a Dramamine type thing) and said it was a positional vertigo- not much they can do about it. Friday, I was still feeling crappy so I went to my primary care. He gave me Valium, which should help me relax and try and let my inner ear settle. There was not much they can do for an inner ear thing. So I took the Valium, relaxed and started to feel a bit better.
Now of course I can't take the Valium at work, so I have not been, and today I feel like I have been hit by a bus. My head hurts, I'm hyper-sensitive to noise, my eyes hurt, but I don't really have a headache. Each time I try and stand up I fall over. Anyway, I called my Doc back- it has been a week since I saw the doc last.
He is refering me to a Neurologist. That freaks me out more than a little. Am I blowing up a little bit of vertigo? How do I know? All I know is I hate this feeling and want it to go away.
