Had a good doctor visit yesterday. It turns out my vertigo is caused by a problem with my right ear and not leukemia, a tumor, or some other horrid thing. She has given me a prescription for a very low dose of Valium. I won’t be taking it often – only if I feel a major spell coming on. Apparently the Valium fiddles with the spot in my brain that handles stability so I can go on with my day. And she said the dosage is so low it won’t make me drowsy.
My only question is, why didn’t they figure this out sooner?
I still have the leukemia and the cause of the vertigo is not fixed, but I can actually get on with my life without tipping over!
