A couple of weeks ago I started to feel strange because I kept having swooshing sounds in my ear. Like I could hear my heart beat and blood swooshing around. I have been dizzy, pressure in my head and just all over not feeling well.
I finally decided to go to the doctor who told me I had fluids in my ear and that I should take allergy meds. I went home tried allergy medication and then thought about the fact that they didn’t help, I could breath fine and that it didn’t feel like the past times I had water in my ear.
So I decided to go to an ear specialist who told me there was no fluids in my ear at all which he backed up with some tests. He then diagnosed me with pulsatile tinnitus. He ordered all kinds of test especially since my mom has carotid stenosis and brain aneurism which can be the cause for a pulsatile tinnitus. But the list can go on and on. I told him that I didn’t want to hear the list because it scared me and that I only wanted to do the tests and if he can help me.
It could have to do with pre menopause which now is what I’m hoping for.
It just really stinks having to deal with this 24/7. You can’t pretend it’s not there because you feel so uncomfortable and it’s constantly on your mind. Exercising is uncomfortable and so is pretty much everything else. Especially if you are dizzy. do you have any experience with this?
I will see the doctor again on October 2nd with the results from the tests and hoping for the best.
So I will try my best not to do that!

And on a lighter note I helped a friend pick some art and I came across some of my favorite shops again and their new art. I also discovered some new ones.

I would hang every single one of them in my home and most of them are available as a giclee art prints. Aren’t they lovely.
