Hello; This is the first posting
Iíve ever made through this website. I found a link to this group when I was looking for information on the Cook Islands
If you donít want to rely, no worries. I just want to know if anyone has experienced what I did.
In the mid 90ís I spent 3 weeks in Rarotonga. It was in February and the temps. never were below 105 degrees!
Brutal! The islanders were fantastic & even though it was very hot, I enjoyed it. The day I was suppose to fly out I went snorkeling and later on in the early evening I became violently ill! I had vomiting, shakiness, sweats, cramps, and could not walk due to my body bent over in cramps. The hotel
mgr. took me to the hospital where I was given a couple of shots & told to get me home ASAP. I have never been so sick.
I returned home feeling very bad but better than the onset.
However, one morning I went to get up & rolled over to do so & I had terrible dizziness. Eventually I got a bit better.
Now, 20 years later Iím still dealing with dizziness. It comes & goes. I have been to so many doctors but nothing to help alleviate the dizziness. I take meclazine when the dizziness is terrible. The dizziness is only when I move my head
but it can be in bed
& wakes me up. My right ear has always felt full & sometimes I can clear it a little bit but I can tell I donít hear as well on that side as I do on the left.
A dr. told me that it appears I either got bit or contracted a virus that settled in my vestibular nerve.
Has anyone ever heard of a virus or sickness that gives the person residual dizziness? Iím thankful the dizziness isnít everyday. Itís when it returns that itís lasting longer or so it seems.
Again, if this isnít a forum to discuss this, I apologize profusely. Thank you for listening.
