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.)
"Symptoms....abnormal sensation of movement, loss of balance....may be severe...severe episodes may be followed by transient episodes." (Check, check, and check.)

The diagnosis? Labyrinthitis.

I kid you not.

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

Apparently so. That's what I get for ignoring him the last few months in favor of Captain Hook things.

I had that like, two months ago! Ugh. It blew; I was overcome with nausea and dizziness every time I moved my head. Had to stay home from werk for about a week, and luckily the Girl was with me at the time to help me out-I couldn't stand or move my head in bed without feeling horrible and feeling like the world was spinning around me. Dramamine or other similar over-the-counter meds help. ^_~

However, when I started to feel better I did not happen to notice David Bowie exiting from my ear. ^_~
