He doesn't seem to be getting any better. He has been waking up every hour and he thinks he has lukimia or a brian tumor, we have heard the the stress of being ill and not knowing properly what is wrong with him is causing this. it feels like he is stuck in a rut.
The doctor has now prescibed anti-depressents and he has been very reluctent to take them, but with alot of persuasion he started taking them last night.
Any advice will be very welcome.
Unfortunately--a to familiar story.....
U begin by going here:
It is the Northwestern Univ web site for:
DIZZINESS, IMBALANCE AND HEARING DISORDERS
Timothy C. Hain, MD
It is also contained in the "sticky" first post on board...
I would start with the page of what the Doc says he's got:
"Vestibular Neuritis and Labyrinthitis"
