Re: Inner ear virus
I think I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank god, I might not be going crazy. I left work early one day completely off balance and confused- couldn't hold a thought in my head, and two months later, I can't say that it is much better. My gyno had prescribed effexor for anxiety shortly before that, and I thought perhaps my decision to discontinue it a week prior had something to do with this brain fog. He said he doubted it, but that two women from his office had gone home early with the same symptoms. He said it may be something viral. This was a little comfort to me, but the anxiety that this has caused has been terrible. I find myself saying off the wall things, having flashes of "Where am I?" FOLLOWED BY THE ANXIETY THAT i'M LOSING MY MIND!!! I can't remember things-EASY THINGS, and its hard to have a conversation, do homework, or read.
I am just now making the connection that this might be inner ear related. I have been experiencing a deep insatiable itch in my right ear for about 2 months, and the cell phone seems to iritate, even burn that ear a little. I thank Jesus for an ear infection- I thought I was brain dead! I haven't seen a doctor about this yet, (other than my gyno), but I will. I couldn't believe this might have something to do with my ear. Sound familiar to anyone?
