Off balance

Vestibular neuritis might sound like rot in the front porch. It’s not. It’s a viral infection that causes inflammation in the inner ear and makes one feel dizzy.

It’s the little sibling of labyrinthitis, a truly horrible condition which at its worst is like motion sickness so violent you can’t lift your head from the pillow, or even move your eyes, without wanting to throw up. I know, I’ve had it. Vestibular neuritis is small fry by comparison. Nevertheless, it’s making me feel off balance and I don’t want to inflict unbalanced ramblings on anyone on a Friday morning. So here’s a post to say I won’t be posting today. See you, perfectly poised as usual, next week.

    Sorry to hear that you are unwell, hope it passes quickly. I remember Grannie had Ménière’s disease towards the end of her life and I hope that there is no genetic predisposition for ear problems. Get well soon.

    Wishing you a very speedy recovery.

  10. I had these symptoms some years back and finally decided to see my doctor after I fell face forward onto the table (I was sitting down!) during a meeting. My doctor told me he was going to send me to ‘the specialist who wrote the book’. Sure enough, when I got o see the specialist, there was the book, on the shelf behind him! I knew I was in good hands. P
