It's been an interesting week here at the Fortress of Solitude. Yesterday I had a video appt with the nurse practitioner about the bed spins and she explained that there are little crystals in the inner ear (So yes, dad, I do have rocks in my head!) that have something to do with balance. OK, she explained it better but I forget. Anyway, one of these crystals came loose and is rattling around causing the bed spins/dizziness. She said if I'm lucky it will go away on its own in a week or two. I'm not sure what happens if it doesn't go away on its own.
It had been getting better but this morning has been a bit of a bother. I'm having to be careful about turning my head too quickly and bending over is risky. The dizziness is making me nauseous so there's that fun as well. The discomfort is killing any desire to do anything useful. I'm probably not going to make it to the store for gumbo fixins'.
I've had some semi-obnoxious lower back pain for over a week. Yeah, yeah I need to lose...
