Greetings, unholyroller! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Aug. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
The second VNG set that was done the goggles leaked light giving me an artificial horizon negating nystagmus - they don't know how to test, so an MRI was ordered.
I had to be sedated for the MRI because I can’t lay down without feeling like a parachutist out of control. All I really needed was to be put into a twilight sleep. The otologist didn't know how to order that, so I had to call the previous doctor and get the name of the medicine they used. This time I was put entirely out as though it was for an operation. I was unconscious for over an hour and a half. While I was waiting in ACU someone stroked out across the room in the post medical unit. Here it is four days later and the metallic taste of the anastasia is just getting out of my mouth.
If doctors cared about quality control they would allow the patient's to read the medical reports to help make corrections, but I suppose that's another story.
I finally decided to hire a lawyer after after writing a doctor asking her to correct hospital admission paperwork she generated saying I had been sick since 1983. The first time I saw a doctor for my inner ear problem was 2004. She refused to correct the paperwork saying she isn't my workman's compensation doctor. Her error is the reason workman's comp didn't pay for the two surgeries and seven days in the hospital.
Thanks Unholy Roller. I do better when I'm not active. Now that it's winter I'm not as active so I don't vomit as much. I'm thinking of having my sinus' reamed out so I have better aeration of my sinus' and thus my inner ears.
Two cats named Marcus? Surely the fabric of the universe will rip. Actually, Marcus is named for a character in a series of mysteries set in ancient Rome, Marcus Didius Falco. A bit of a rogue, but a nice guy.
My next attempt is to take mega doses of fish oil to help the cells heal without undesirable mutations. I'm hoping that one day I'll be able to get stem cell implants into both of my vestibular systems. My headaches are better since doing the Eply maneuver to get rid of some BPPV I had, but I know I have scarring of the vestibular system and that will only be helped through stem cell therapy. I hope one day that will be available.
quite all right. Actually it was a bit humorous to have what I was talking about occur right there for all to see. I guess ppl like that are blind to how they are behaving, if that's the right word. And who is felch?
Dang! That sucks the big one! Demand adequate pain relief. If your body id constantly fighting the stress of pain, it doesn't have enough energy to heal properly. Hoping you finally get rid of all this crap. Best.
Thanks. The pain I have does suck all of my energy out of me. All I can do is sit around or lay in bed. Hopefully the pain management doctor, or neurologist I've been refereed to will find the right medicinal cocktail. I talked with a friend today who said he watched a TV show on PBS called mysterious diagnosis where they said botox injections into the head works permanently. It isn't approved by the FDA so my insurance probably won't cover it, but I'm going to ask them about it and am willing to give it a try.
Thanks. Hopefully the Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) leak is sealed now and that will stop my headaches. When I go back to the doctor for a refill on antibiotics, what I'm taking isn't working, I'm going to ask for a referral to a pain management specialist a frend recommended.
