Get up and go
« on: January 14, 2010, 12:54:30 pm »
I have been doing so good for like the past month. Hardly any balance problems to the point where I almost forgot how wonky head felt. Then the past week, it's come back. I'm working and going along ok, but last night I felt so discouraged. I came home from work and my 19 year old started in on me about the computer and blah blah blah. I just plunked down on the couch unable to do another thing. She looked at me and asked what was wrong and I just started crying. Now, I'm a mom who never cries in front of her kids...never. I told her I was dizzy all day and she put her arms around me and let me cry on her shoulder. She kept telling me it was going to be ok. That was better medicine than any doctor could have given me. I was going to sit there on the couch and cry all night, but after that, I got up, went to the YMCA (ok do the dance) and walked the track for 30 min. I felt better and feel better today.

Why does the dizziness wax and wane? Does it mean the tumor is growing?

I don't have an answere to you question but I had a similar problem this morning.  I was sitting in a chair blowing the excess water out of a hose.  Next thing I knew was I was super dizzy & almost threw up#@*^  Good thing I was sitting down!  Took me a while to get over it & have not been quite right all day.  Every once in a while I have these bad days.  Glad your daughter was there for you.
