This Is The Worst Vestibular Cold EVER!!! Being With Out Colds My Days Are Ever Slightly Off Balance, Some Visuals, And Just Blah, And Occasional Wooziness.....A Scary Symptom Or Dizziness Sneaks In Occasionally....Well Since I Got This Cold Last Saturday I Have.....Lost 75% Of My Hearing In My Left Year Doesnt Really Feel Full But Maybe Just Like Some Light Cotton In There Or Something But No Popping Feeling Or Pain Except For Pain Sat Night (thoought might have had ear infection but it stopped hurting) When I Wake Up For The Past Three Days I Feel Exhausted (after sleeping 8 hours)And Like I Just Got Off The Gravitron Or Tilt R Whirl I Am Stumbling Around And Into Stuff And Feel Like I Am Going To Fall Over.....Then I Am Continually Dizzy For The Rest Of The Day.....Mostly When I Get Colds I Feel A Little "Off" But This One Really Had Me Going Through The Wringer.....The Cold Started With Slight Sore Throat and Constantly Running Nose Then On Second Day It Went Right To My Chest And I Have Been Hacking Ever Since (which leaves me spinning
)...It Feels Like It Is GOing Away And As Far As Colds Go It Wasnt That Bad....My Daughter Still Has The Cough Occasionally And It Has Been AT Least Three Weeks....I Am Thinking I Feel So Bad Vestibularly Cause My Ear MUST Be Blocked I Mean I Cant Hear Right And I Couldnt Have Just Gone Deaf Overnight?? I Have Tried To Get It To Drain So I Can Hear And Maybe Have Some Dizzy Relief (so I can stop taking Valium everyday) I Tried Cleaning My Ear Really Well With QTips, I Tried A Warm Wet Cloth, I Have Tried Vicks On My Chest Every Night Hoping To Break It Up, I Hve Even Tried Laying My Ear On A Hot Water Bottle For Hours.....I Was Debating On Going To My Dr To Make Sure My Ears Were Clogged And I Am Not Really Deaf But Medically There Isnt Much She Can Do For Me And As Far As The Dizziness Goes She Doesnt Understand At All....Any Ideas Guys?? Is This All The Cold?? Any Way To Drain My Ear?? Is It Uncommon For It Not To Be Painful And Feel Really Full If I Lost Hearing Due To Cold Or Could I Really Be Deaf ANd My Bablance System Compromised For Life???
Sorry For The Vent This Is Just Kicking My Butt And Breaking THe Little Spirit I Had LEFT
