BPPV Update

Wow, what a month. I've had 3 physical therapy treatments. The first one wasn't so bad, some dizziness with the movements designed to move the crystals out of the area where they are causing problems. The 2nd treatment was horrible. The room was spinning at times & one time when she sat me up, I felt like I was falling. The sensations were only supposed to last a few seconds, one lasted quite a few minutes. The 3rd one only resulted in a few episodes that only lasted a few seconds.

I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

She said this could happen again in 6-18 months OR it could never occur again. I'm hoping its beyond the 6 month range since we will be in Illinois for the Feast of Tabernacles at the 6 month mark. Going to the ER while you are at the feast is NO FUN for anyone involved.

Working on a few health topics.

The Sun, sunblock lotion & skin cancer - What is the link?

Our toxic environment

Microwaves - How harmless are they?

My research class I took February thru March has really opened up a new relm of possibilities of topics & deeper research. I look forward to diving into these topics & typing up an article.

Til next time,
