Vertigo

Post by Witness »

That was an interesting sub-thread in "Kitten pics". As I'm very prone to that special dizziness, let's say it's cathartic…

Very "nice" Gram, simply sitting is suddenly difficult!

Well, it's purported to be a sort of hot place, with shaggy demonesses. Woulden't be surprised if heavy drinking, smoking & hollering around was going on.

So let's cool down:

Why the fuck do people do shit like this? You wouldn't get me up there in the first place, let alone persuade me to jump off.

So I've been told I have rogue crystals in my semicircular canals.
Bleah.
No Tums for a few days, let the things reabsorb and go away so they don't crash around and make the universe into a merry-go-round at random times.
Gotta risk osteoporosis to avoid losing my balance.
Fun.

Welcome to the club. I had that kind of problem some years ago, being awfully "sea"-sick for nearly three days (and thinking it was food poisoning). Symptoms disappeared, but from then on, when I lift my head too fast, I get a bit dizzy – so clearly human ears aren't made for bouncing around otoliths.

On the good side, it could have been Ménière's disease, which is terrible.

On the bad side, as my grandmother used to say, "Starast' nie radast'" ~ no happiness in being an old fart.

You have my sympathy.

When I first saw that one, it looked like a giant flying saucer was overhead. It was on my mobile, so it was scaled down considerably. Took me a few seconds to process what I was seeing.
