Mystery Illness...

The mystery remains. Just as I was starting to feel better, I got hit with dizziness on Thursday evening. It progressed into a nasty spell of vertigo causing me to vomit at work on Friday morning (that was fun!) and leave early because I felt so nauseous that there was no way that I could stare at the computer screen a second longer. My mom was a lifesaver and took me to the ER. I didn't know what else to do... it's been six weeks now. An EKG, cat scan and blood work yielded no results. I don't understand... this is so not normal. Our family doctor and the ENT specialist couldn't figure it out. I'm going to the eye doctor on Wednesday... just another thing to check off the list of possible culprits of this awfulness. If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them... I'm up for trying damn near anything at this point.

The two things that are helping me to maintain my sanity...

wow 6 weeks?! i really hope they find out what's wrong with you. you poor thing, i can't imagine.
i was sick for like 3 weeks (with nausea, upset stomach, indigestion), but i think it was just stress from the wedding.
Have you had any earaches? I had a case of vertigo and nausea due to an inner ear infection and had to go to the ER.
