Yeah, I understand that. I guess I’m just leery of side effects and having to endure that initial dizzy for a bit phase.
AS AN UPDATE,
Sunday 3/25/2018 was very strange.
At night it got very scary. A weather front came in and the barometer pressure spiked .6 in a matter of hours. It made my left ear become full to the point of almost overfull (it’s weird how I can sense it like a fuel gauge as to where it’s currently at). It made me dizzy, ground started rocking back and forth and it made my heart start racing. I felt as if I was going to get full vertigo, so I went for a 2 hour drive. With the drive I didn’t notice symptoms unless I was at a stop light. Where it felt like the car was moving a bit forward.
Got home, felt better but after an hour in bed it started to increase again… I started to get a little off again but then after 5 mins or so it went back down.
Woke up at 3 am dizzy… Then back asleep til 630 am with half inner ear fullness which went away after 30 mins or so (no, I’m working yet haha) and I’ve been awake since. Was thinking a nap today would be nice.
Other than that, the imbalance and all that weird stuff has reduced a lot since 3 weeks ago now. Still not baseline tho. Weirdly, when I was using the bathroom last night standing up, I was in the dark and I felt like I was shrinking and if I teetered forward I felt like I was growing in height. Very very strange! THAT to me was Alice in Wonderland.
As a note the past couple days I’ve felt pretty imbalanced and off, so I believe that Sunday issue created a lapse. Yesterday was really bad during the day and it didn’t even rain. I was on my couch for most of the day and that sets it off if I’m not moving much, but it was especially off. Eyes were having trouble focusing sometimes too.
However, today, not to be pre-emptive, but I’m feeling a bit better, so I counted and Sunday-Wed is roughly a 3-4 day reset. I’m not to close baseline by any means, but it’s better than yesterday and the days before from Sunday. I was doing well before Sunday too since 3/22/2018… It took roughly 2 weeks and about a day or 2 to recover from that antibiotic ear issue… So I was thinking roughly a week for this one from the Sunday lapse. I think it occurred because my ear wasn’t fully healed yet from the antibiotic lapse and my ear was vulnerable to the weather… and sinuses… caught it just right! My sinuses the past couple days made me nervous about a sinus infection so I’ve been chugging water… Had 200 oz of water on Tuesday. My feet were getting cold and couldn’t get them warm until a matter of time and 2 blankets + my slippers. Socks weren’t helping weird enough. I’m feeling a bit better today tho, not all nasally, however the past couple days since Sunday my left ear has once again been fluctuating up and down in pressure, not as bad as the antibiotic lapse, but enough to go up but barely feel the leaking sensation when it reduces. I’m thinking possibly another 4-5 days for it to regulate again. The fluxing up and down I’m sure did not help my dizziness issue at all. Where’s the summer weather where it’s a bit more consistent with clear days?
As a note, since Sunday, sleeping on my right side now makes my right ear feel clogged when I wake up – irritating. It goes down after 20-30 mins or so. I’m hoping when my left ear regulates again, this will subside once again.
On a high note!!! I’m down to 214 lbs. I use the WeightGurus weight scale and the app tracks your progress with a wonderful chart. I was 250 lbs in July and now 214… Goal is roughly 190ish. Possibly more to the likes of 175-180 which I haven’t been since my military days back in 2009.
Also, my tinnitus has come to a very low minimum. I feel like sometimes I can’t even hear it.
