Anyone had it?
also called or is a type of minear diaease.
It is no joke.
I got mine back in 2007, tied in with heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Lost all my fluids when it hit me - meaning I sweated everything out - soaked 3 couch cushions.
Was never so scared in all my life.
Everything spinning out of control if my eyes were open, but I was fine with them closed.
Extreme nausia too... real bad.
Had to get to the hospital - lucky for me - I was still in the all volunteer fire dept out here, so everyone showed up.
A captain of my former company showed up, and he said he never seen anything like it - the way my eyes were ping ponging back and forth..........
About 5 - 6 hours later, they were finally able to establish an IV through the back of my hand.
All my veins completely collapsed.
I did get sent home later at night, saw an ear nose and throat specialist a day or two later.
I still don't know what triggered it - I believe he felt I had some kind of inner ear infection or something but I know this I never want to ever experience anything like that ever again.
I was out of work for two, although my mother claims three weeks.
I walked like a drunk for a long time - six months maybe ??
Only time I felt ok was when out kayaking.
Oddly enough, it is very common in these parts.
I knew a woman who got it real bad, she never came back to the plant - she got a disability thing out of it - but what a price to pay
I believe mine was also caused by stress.
Thank God I've only had a couple of sensations but I popped the sea sick pills and I'd be then ok.
Thank God, I have not had to do that in a few years now.
It is something that truly scares me.
If you are suffering with this condition, my heart really goes out to you.
