Vertigo

Isn't that the name of a U2 song? Well, I have it...no, not the song, the illness. Last night after playing poker, I stood up, the world tilted and I fell on my a**. I have been dizzy and nauseous since. No appetite, and just burning up. My face is flushed, my eyes look like I'm on something and my brain is very fuzzy. I feel confused, but I don't know what I'm confused about! I finally went to the doc this afternoon at the insistance of my mum and they say I have Vertigo. In the middle of the exam, I went into a full blown panic attack. I haven't had one of those in close to 5 years. I think it was more scary to me than the dizziness and stuff. So, I'm taking dramimine and "resting". This sucks.
I need to mow the yard, weed the herb bed and the vegetable garden and I HAVE to make my wreaths! I'm going to rest for a little while and then pull out my supplies and get to work. I saw that HBO has "Skeleton Key" on tonight. I think I'll have to watch that. :-)
Well, I'm off to try to 'rest'. Maybe more later after I get some work done on my wreaths.
Blessings

I hope you feel better soon... I know about being dizzy and feeling off, mine though is from being pregnant...

Holy cow! That sucks. What is the treatment for this?

Witchy, thanks for the kind thoughts...and congrats on the new baby!
Queen, doc said to take dramamine (SP?) and that it should go away in 3-5 days. I'm on day 4 and am keeping all fingers and toes crossed that it is gone soon. :-)
