Re: Strangely enough
Hi Peter. I've been living with this since the mid Seventies. It started when I stupidly spent a day on the shooting range with no hearing protection. Boy, did I pay for that. And I've had vertigo. A couple of times it was so bad I had to go to the ER. Once it hit me at work. I had to pull my police car into a parking lot and they had to send an ambulance for me. It's been years since I had it but is is definitely NOT a pleasant experience, that's for sure.
Sorry about your tinnitus problem. That's ringing in the ears (and/or other noises) which affects hearing. Not a good situation, especially for someone who loves music. Hopefully, there's meds out there which can help you out.
I, for one, suffer from "vertigo" which causes dizziness; and at times it's like the room is spinning out of control. Scary stuff! It's got something to do with the inner ear which affects my balance. Doctors give me pills and some neck exercises to do but nothing works.
That's the reason I'd visit X-Roads & Folk USA, then disappear for awhile. I'm not trying to play hard to get. It's this damn dizziness!
Joni Mitchell wrote a song called "Circle Game" and I can really relate to these words:
"Round and Round and Round and Round and Round and Round..."
No worm today. Just the tinnitus.
