Thanks James. I know that I've been scarce of late....and just knew that I should'nt claim to be better!!!! As punishment for my self satisfaction - yesterday presented me with 2 mini earthquakes! Damn! In all honesty, I have been 99% better since around the end of April .Despite being literally terrified of unwanted consequences, I had a fabulous 10 day break at the end of May/beginning June, during which time I felt absolutely normal!! Trip included a 10 hour road trip each way in a strange car, a lot more driving around once there, coffee, wine, beer (although in moderation). I don't know if it is significant that I went inland - to a higher altitude?
Once home, I returned to 99% good - just 'aware' of not being totally O.K. The last month has seen our temperatures doing those huge fluctuations again - and about 2 weeks ago I had a couple of mini earthquakes on one day....preceded (hindsight being 20/20 vision!!) by a couple of days of depression....which is unusual for me! This past week has also issued it's warnings, I suppose.....upset tummy, agitation, stiff neck, cold sore.....maybe connected - maybe not? Something else I noticed and will try to do a little research on....( Computers not all that friendy at present..) .....I wear a copper bracelet which is normally shiney bright....and from Tuesday it has gone dark and dull - almost tarnished. I have noticed these changes before, but never taken much notice....wondering now if it perhaps indicates some sort of chemical change in the body???
The 'good'(???_ thing about thee flare ups being isolated is that it gives a better chance to analyze what has happened/eaten/done in the preceding days. Unfortunately, I can identify nothing out of the ordinary except the changes in weather pressure!! SO! I have come to the conclusion (definition of a conclusion: "the place where you are tired of thinking!!") that whatever caused my problems is something that is partially blocked or gets inflamed causing some sort of inability to drain/move freely. Maybe damage from the Meniere's?? Maybe scar tissue from the surgery way back then???
Sorry, did'nt mean to hi-jack your post, James! I've been meaning to put all this down for a while......You asked about meds - I have never been on 'actual' meds.....still continue with the supplements, but had stopped the feverfew ( as i really believe that the slight headaches I get are a result of the dizziness - not the other way around..) However - re-started that yesterday - just in case! So far to-day, just that sort of heaviness behind they eyes, so here's hoping that with the weather forecast fairly stable for the rest of the w/end, things will settle down! Going to get on with some nice calming, all consuming glass work now!!
I hope your hearing continues to improve and the tinnitus diminishes!!
