Monday I had to have continued testing to verify the Vertigo diagnosis. First I was tested in my hearing but that’s remained about the same– 30% ability to hear anything in my right ear or a 70% loss, depending on whether your glass is half full or half empty.
Then we went on to the Electronystagmogram (ENG) testing. Lovely. Really.
In addition to some exercises involving a light bar and laying down, there is the inducement of 4 separate and distinct episodes of Vertigo. Lovely. Really. I flunked miserably, of course (I do have Vertigo, we know), and managed to not be functional for the rest of the day. I called in sick, took my Antivert and promptly checked out for the day.
I kept thinking: “I’ll go downstairs and sew in a minute.” Thankfully, I never got around to that minute– my concentration and functionality was pretty much wrecked for the rest of the day.
