It’s been a rather disheartening week. Last week I was feeling really good, in fact over the weekend, I thought to myself, that if the physical therapist again asked me how much percentage I was feeling better since I first saw him, I would say 95%, maybe even 98%. On Monday I woke up feeling fine, although, weirdly, my shoulder joints were painful to the touch. Midafternoon, I could just feel the dizziness creep back…almost like a scalp crawl of a feeling. It’s as though somebody pulls a shade down in front of me. I kept going but all of a sudden I was making constant mistakes, having to redo things, I completely lost the ability to focus. It’s hard to articulate. I feel like I’m in a thick fog, it’s as though there are weights on my eyes and forehead. The next morning I got up and did my exercises three times…to no avail. Yesterday I saw the physical therapist and he worked a long time on my neck, thinking that could perhaps be tied into it, but nothing made it any better, and so I am being returned to the doctor, asking for a referral to an ENT.
My doctor gave me the referral; I contacted them and they said they would send me to the dizziness clinic. THE DIZZINESS CLINIC? I've been complaining about dizziness for months and just now they mention, oh yeah, we have a dizziness clinic. Of course I can't make an appointment, I have to wait for them to mail me a questionnaire to complete. Then I have to mail it back to them and then they will schedule something. I asked if they could email it. No.
Thanks to Ernie…a bit of garden work is getting done…
