Ayrton, Ayrton - 01/14/2014

sounds familiar to me ecexpt I never went through all the doctor trouble you did. I lost a huge chunk of my hearing in my right ear when I was about 35. I woke up with the full feeling in my right ear and couldn't walk, the room was spinning, my eyes twitched repeatedly (nystigmous..spelling?) vomiting, sweating .I had my wife take me to the ER. I was given meclizine through an IV and it calmed down after several hours. When I have severe episodes it goes away overnight and takes about a week or two to feel 100%.I am in the midst of recovery of an episode that I had 5 days ago. I was fine just watching tv in my chair and looking down at my ipad. I got the familiar dizzy thing going on..I walked over to my phone on the kitchen counter and it hit me. I dropped to the floor and just laid there. I didn't want to move. The sweat pooled underneath my arms on the linoleum floor. As I laid still my entire head was sweating and it dripped continually down my face and neck. My back was sweaty and my shirt was sticking to my body. I attempted to crawl and fell over into the wall immediately. I just wanted to get upstairs to bed.I finally got a hold of my wife via texting and told her to get home immediately. I could not take care of my two year old if he woke up. I made a crawling, run for it to the upstairs bathroom and vomited about ten times. I just laid on the floor next to the toilet for about an hour. I managed to get my pants off and just laid on the cool floor as I continued to sweat and lie still. I managed to get into bed where I could just lie down for a few hours until the worst had passed. I have been very fortunate that these only hit me hard 1-2 times a year. People that have never had this happen to have no idea how incapacitating it is. The closest I can describe it is that when you drink a lot of alcohol and you start getting the spins and then you throw up..that is what it feels like ecexpt throwing up doesn't make the spins go away and it takes a long time to feel normal again.I take meclizine but don't know if it helps. I don't pay particular attention to my diet either.
