I giggle.

Oh yes I do. Because while trying to figure out other causes of random weird medical foo that has been happening to me recently, I came across the following description:

"Ear disorder...characterized by inflammation...which causes dizziness." (major symptom lately)
"Occurs following an upper respiratory infection." (I had a nasty one for a month prior to recent dizziness and breathing fun.)

The diagnosis? Labyrinthitis.

I kid you not.

(Those of you who know me or have seen my web page will understand the giggling.)
