It was like laying in my rack on the boat. Caught a few 'Zs' in the process.
Should get more info on Thursday when I follow up with the ENT Doc.
fully understand. my own doctor is going to schedule and MRI for me after he gets the results back from my blood work they took today.
for about six months or more i have had bouts of blurred vision, lack of the ability to sometimes focus my eyes, dizziness, and losing my balance. at first i thought it was my blood pressure being too high and they increased my BP medication dosage, but the problem is still happening. sometimes it may last a few minutes to sometimes for several hours. a couple of times it has even lasted for a couple of days.
he wants to test for a chemical imbalance in my thyroid and some other things first. my last MRI was done in 2008 and he thinks we may need a more current one to see if there are any problems.
hang in there Doc. i'm in the same boat with ya!
