Anybody knowledgable about inner ear stuff?

Postby muy_thaiguy on Fri Dec 07, 2012 5:32 pm

I ask because the doctor thinks I may have Meneire's Disease. Took the tests, but don't see the doc for the results until the 17th.

Basically, been having many cases of light headedness/dizziness, random ringing in my ears, pressure on my ears, ear aches, migraines (rare, thankfully), shaky vision, and occasionally it feels like the world is spinning. Sometimes in 3 directions at once.
I am what I am.

No condition is so terrible that the people in this forum won't find a way to make it worse.

I know, I could saxi disease. The side effects are too horrible to mention. Just look what it did to poor saxitoxin and Army of God.

Rofl, too true. What is little known is that saxi gave the disease to Aog on a weekend tryst. The details of said meeting are also too horrible to mention.
Good luck with it though, hopefully it's nothing permanent.

I know that wax builds up in my inner ear. That's about it.

But don't worry about it because worrying about anything only makes it worse. The truth is that things are never as bad as we imagine them to be. But even if they are there is always a bright side even if we can't see it at the time. And some say that laughter is the best medicine.

That's why I stop pushing the Q-tip in my ear as soon as I feel the slightest bit of resistance.

It works for me.

Cut down on salt. Don't drink too much. Avoid martial arts that result in blows to the head. And if the results are positive this will help stop it getting worse.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

...and good luck. Tinnitus is a bastard, I know. Try to avoid aggravating this condition, try hard.

I have a relative with this condition. Apparently it can be debilitating at times, but his is generally controlled. Suspect your doctor will give you better advise than that there, though ;)
