Balance Disorder

I'd suffered from balance disorder since Sunday. The whole world seems to spin once I lie down. Looking at the computer screen for around 5 minutes was enough to make me giddy and puke. My doctor suspected that it's related to my recent sinusitis, where the middle ear got inflammation.

My situation worsen this morning, to the extend that I can't stand upright for long, and unable to drive to work. On medication and MC today.

To tell u all the truth, I'm terrified with this experience. It's my first time and it's certainly uncomfortable. I felt sucks.

middle ear contains the semi-circular canal... a liquid filled structure that controls human balance.. if that is infected, you will lose balance, keep taking ur medication and look up the internet on the health of ur semi-circular canal oke.

yeah it is true what Rizal said.. you should be lucky to have so many doctor friends that u can consult anytime... but seriously if it persists , probably brain imaging will be helpful.. any cranial nerves lesion ?? i had avery rare case during my training where sinusitis led to cavernous sinus thrombosis.. yerrr a sinister.

Josh said...

[Bud] Getting better. Thanks.
Luckily u didn;t ask me to howl. haha

[Inah] Thanks dear. I'm getting better.

[Rizal] Terima kasih cikgu. I'm under medication now. Oh ya, my science teacher did a good job, I remember the structures and functions of my middle even until today. That organ is cochlea.

[Chen] thanks chen-chen.

Josh said...

[Syukur] You're scaring me! No, my symptom does not persist, I'm getting better now, really. And no, I don't think there's any cranial nerve lesions, nor thrombosis in my sinus cavities. But I'm glad I have doc friends like u to watch over my shoulder. hehee

[danial] erm... speechless.. u got me... But anyway, I DID rest for the whole day yesterday, and i DID taken my medication for the past few days you know. I'm not always that stubborn, not as stubborn as u, i think. hehehe... I'm feeling much better now, at least my 'world' is not spinning now.
I'll be perfectly fit to welcome u home and belanja u until u can't eat anymore. Don't worry.

[Azizi] Thanks bro.

[Putu] Thanks putu. Erm.. I wish she's pregnant now, tapi bukan ler, Josh yg pregnant. Perut dah buncit sebab dua minggu x gi gym. Huwaaa.....

Josh said...

[Pinky] Thanks pinky. Dah semakin sihat.

[Axim] Thanks brother. Saya sendiri pun terkejut.

[Bud] keep your finger cross.

PUTUBAMBU said...

Josh said...

[Putu] Yup, I'm very lucky, and blessed. Thanks kawan-kawan.

Tropical Banana said...

Ooh, hope you DO get better soon. As in very soon.

(Because my birthday is in two days. Kidding!)

And I hope you feel better too. It doesn't sound like you're having much fun. Though it sounds like fun itself :D

Cheers!

Oh no Oh no....sakit apa tu... macam pelik sangat, bagi orang yg rajin wat meditasi, tu masa masa the force masuk kat badan tapi ini susahlah nak cakap... takper Josh rehat rehat yer.... penuhkan masa dengan berblogging atau berenang atau gi gym atau main masak masak... pokoknya buat terapi apa aja

Josh said...

[Banana] Thank you my dear niece. It's fun, really. (gosh... I'm lying without blinking)

[Beruang madu] Tenkiu abg bear. Terapi Josh tido je. Tu penyakit sementara, sebab koklea bengkak. Sekarang dah ok dah bang.
