"The Flyin' V" is what I call my new and constant companion, Vertigo. I detest it. I wouldn't wish it on another person, even my worst enemy. But today, Thursday, makes one week that the V and I have been together. I suppose today is an anniversary of sorts. Ha!
I went to the Dr. yesterday and my blood pressure was way too high so I'm on BP and cholesterol medications. She informed me that the Meclizine should help the V but I haven't been taking enough. I chewed four pills today but no improvement yet. However, my eyes do have this lovely gritty feel to them and I have no energy at all. Hopefully the Meclizine will help at some point.
The Dr. didn't seem to think there was a connection between the blood pressure and the V but some things I've read on the web make me wonder if there is. I hope there is and I hope the medication will lower the BP enough to help the V. We'll see.
Honestly, if this doesn't improve a lot and very quickly I can't see any way I can keep my job. I can't drive and although I have short periods where the V seems manageable, its definitely affecting my performance at work.
At any rate, I'm still around but not cooking much as its hard to cook when one can barely stand and I haven't felt like doing much.
Thanks for the emails asking how I am. Now you know. :) And if you're a long time sufferer of Vertigo, you have my utmost respect and deepest sympathy at the same time.
