Good news, bad news....

The good news is that the MRI came back normal. The bad news is the vertigo came back - again. I was making such good progress on the 1 hr a day quilt, now nothing while they try a new combination of meds to control the dizziness. Bah humbug on this! The bad news is I emailed JudyL on Sunday to see if she was still having problems posting (she was/is), the good news is that since she can't post more steps, I'm not getting further behind on her quilt. (Trying hard for a silver lining here ladies, trying to see the cup half full, etc.) . Its fun to goof off and do nothing when that is your choice, not so fun when you must stay imobile or fall over. Good news-I can use the computer for almost 5 minutes before doing my famous impression of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Hope that the next time I post, I will have photos of PROGRESS on the quilt. The pictures the rest of you have posted are wonderful- same pattern, so many different moods and quilts.

Hope they can soon isolate the problem and hence solve your vertigo. It sounds very dibilitating -- I can't even truly imagine. You're in my thoughts and [prayers.

One of my sisters-in-law had vertigo several years ago. Turned out she had some kind of a virus. I think it started with a cold. Just something to think about.
Hope you're feeling better soon and can get back to your quilting.

Well, at least they didn't find anything awful in you head. Sending positive thoughts that the meds will work out very soon. What an awful way to live!

Come right on over Gail and stitch with me. I will prop you up and we can have chocolate cookies and milk.

That sucks about the dizziness. :(

RYN: Alex always poses for the camera, as soon as he sees the camera come out he starts smiling and reaching for it.

I hope you can get meds under control soon! I'm sending lots of positive energy your way.

You have my sincere sympathies with the vertigo. My DH has had a couple of really nasty attacks over the last number of years - we think (or rather HOPE) that we've gotten to the root the problem. He'd have the majority of his attacks at the same time each year ..... bad seasonal allergies is what was suspected. He now goes for bi-weekly injections and the duration and intensity of the attacks has definitely improved.

I sincerely hope that your medication helps you and so glad that the MRI came back as normal.
