I woke up the morning of New Year's Eve with terrible, incapacitating vertigo, which I've never had before. Has anyone else ever experienced this? I couldn't move my head more than a couple of inches without the room spinning and getting sick to my stomach, and I spent the entire day and evening in bed. Since New Year's Eve, dramamine (for motion sickness) has helped immeasurably and enabled me to be both ambulatory and somewhat functional, but it's a treatment for the symptom, not the problem.
On Friday, the doctor said many times a cause for vertigo is not known, but usually it goes away on its own. It may also recur at any time or not for 10 years or never. Hardly what I wanted to hear, and I'll be very happy if it will just go away now. The doctor has scheduled a cat scan to rule out other possibilities.
I am supposed to return to work on Monday morning; and even though the doctor has said I can drive while taking dramamine, it's not a prospect I'm really looking forward to.
Hope everyone else rang in the New Year in style. I've been catching up on blog reading today, and lots of bloggers seem to be very focused on either cleaning and reorganizing or contemplating goals for the new year. Either way, everyone seems to be looking forward to a fresh start, and that includes me too.
Along those lines, Amanda has already signed up for two challenges, one for Pay it Forward and the other for One Project a Month. The latter has more appeal for me, and the idea is to finish at least one project a month, whether it's a UFO (the original idea) or something new. I have a thousand and one UFOs, so that will be one of my goals this year.
