Well, just before Thanksgiving my computer died.  The good news is I got it back today!  Me, well, that is a different story.  Been dealing with being dizzy for a while now.  Since about the beginning of OCT is started to get worse and now real bad.  Went to the doc the beginning of Nov.  BP was crazy.  Got meds and after a couple of weeks and adding a new med it is normal.  Still very dizzy though.  Not all the time, just when I try to do anything.  Doc decided that we should do a MRI.  Went to get it done, everything was fine until they put my it in and I had a claustrophopic attack!  So, yesterday I went back and had one while knocked out.  They found nothing.  Well, I did have a brain, but nothing out of the ordinary.  I had a horrible recovery.  Took 3 hours for me to even be able to sit up.  So, I am still dizzy and I still have no answers.  I have to wait until Monday to call the doc.  Maybe something showed up with the blood work.  I know, I am grateful that I don't have a tumor or something, but I do need to figure out what is going on so I can actually function again!  Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.  I did!  Laura

Hi Laura,

Any news on what may be going on? Have they run any further tests?

Nothing still, we are trying to figure out how I can go see a ear nose and throat guy. I have no insurance. Hopefully I will get an appointment soon. A few days before Christmas I got relief from being dizzy. Went back on the first bp med. It is also for mountain sickness, so something in it makes me feel OK. Just can't over do it. bp still good. Now I am just trying to catch up and hoping that the med will continue to make me feel ok. :) Laura
