Hi DizzyMe and friends, Oh, my, I couldn’t even LOOK down, much less bend down!! I was supposed to take an IQ test for insurance (to test for brain fog). The test was on the desk. I told her I couldn’t look down to take it. I could LIE DOWN on the floor and take it, but forget the desk. Then it got so bad that I couldn’t turn my head without feeling as though I was passing out. Not just feeling “like” I was going to pass out. I felt like I lost consciousness for a split second. That sense of doom you described? Boy, do I know that feeling! I had my husband pull the car over to the side of the road because I felt like my brain was suffocating. I told him it was something about the position of the seat. I couldn’t get oxygen to my brain… Then came cervical collars, recommendations for cranio-cervical stability surgery, neck fusions, talk of brain shunts for my son and I. But we were “triggered” by viruses. I felt like they were missing something. Somehow, I was able to refuse surgery for us. It is my fervent hope, that you will respond as we did to treatment (did you try Diamox, BTW? That was a GREAT start!). Now, while listening to music in the car, I find myself throwing my head around to the music –OMG. I used to be afraid to MOVE and now I’ve become super rock-star bobblehead? No symptoms? There is hope for all of us, my friends… 🙂 Diana
