Thank you all for the well wishes. I'm sorry that you've been down this road before, A, but thank you for sharing your experience with me. Did you by chance also have issues with severe headaches, right above, and behind the ear and wrapping around the back of your head? I'll try pushing some NSIDS, and see if that helps them.
Right now for me these headaches are the most debilitating symptom. While still fighting a little dizziness, that part is currently manageable. But with that said, I've decided it's best to put the chainsaw up for the season, and no hiking up to mountain lakes before snow this year.
Every thing else you describe sounds like a checked 'yes' box on my tally sheet. Hearing loss/tinnitus (thanks Caterpillar, and Detroit Diesel), arthritis/degenerative disk disease, spinal deformation with straightening of the neck...., even the part about being surprised about the clean bill of health on a head scan, lol.
I feel this recent event has taken more out of me, or maybe away from me, then I have been able to comprehend yet. But screw it, what am I going to do? Someone still has to split, and stack the fire wood, winterize the truck, harvest the garden..... I'm sure you understand. I'll tell you though, it's not getting done quite as fast this year as it has gotten done in the past.
On a brighter side, it has made me cut back on my drinking. One or two beers, or maybe a mixed drink is about all I can handle with out becoming way dizzy. It's weird, it's not like feeling drunk, but my balance is completely shot.
