Well, that was a sucky three days. After work on Tuesday, I suffered a dizzy spell. I didn’t pay it much mind, but the spells came more often and were much more serious. The missus had me go to the doctor’s to make sure everything was okay. It wasn’t.
The first doc said I was dehydrated. I thought that an odd diagnosis since I had been working inside an air conditioned building all week, but whatever; I rarely question the doc. He told me to drink plenty of fluids and I should be okay in a day.
Well, Wednesday was a nightmare, filled with dizzy spells, nausea, and violent headaches. Last night was worse, and I only saw about two hours sleep, total. I went to the hospital to get a full workup. They took blood, gave me an EKG, and a CT scan of my melon. All tests came back negative – especially for brain activity, apparently.
After examining the results, the doc came into my room and said I am suffering from benign positional vertigo, caused by fluid in the ears. So my days off have been spent holding myself upright like a drunken Irishman. Erin go bragh!
Thanks much to Dr. Evil for covering for me. Regular posting should resume soon.
