Since July I have been experiencing some weird dizzy spells. It was really strange and I couldn't figure it out because it comes and goes and it happens in the middle of the night. I usually turn over in the middle of the night and would wake up because of this strange dizziness. It happened again last night at three in the morning and this time it just scared me alot. So I called my doctor first thing this morning because everytime I moved my head I would get lightheaded or dizzy and it turns out I have something called BENIGN PAROXYSMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO. Basically there is debris within a part of my inner ear(this is the easiest way to explain it), the debris is called ear rocks(does this mean I have rocks in my head). The symptoms include dizziness, vertigo, lightheadedness, imbalance and nausea. Activities which bring on symptoms vary but symptoms are almost always precipitated by a change of position of the head. Getting out of bed and rolling over in bed are common problem motions.
It can be helped by a series of head exercises which I am going to start tonight, the exercises have an 80% cure rate which is so encouraging because this dizzy stuff is driving me crazy. I can function without any problems, I just really have to watch it so I don't jerk my head quick or bend to pick something up until this passes. I am so glad I went to the doctor instead of trying to wait for it to pass again and that I listened to my gut feeling. I do not get online and look up medical stuff on the internet because I have always found that is a sure fire way to get yourself all work up about nothing. I just thank the Lord that it can be taken care of.
So anyway this is the start of my weekend. LOL I am getting ready now to go and see Gran Torino with my sweetie. Both Kari and Kat have written how much they liked the movie and since I didn't think I could get my sweetie to see Marley and Me or Bride Wars this will work. LOL He loves a good Clint Eastwood movie. Hey that guy has to be in his 70's by now! Have a great weekend and I guess I won't be watching Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo anytime soon. LOL I'm behind in posting a couple of awards and I will do it soon, just wanted you guys to know I do appreciate them.
