I was feeling sick the other day and the world kept spinning around so I went to the doctor. He asked me questions including whether I had any numbness. Eventually he advised it was probably just a virus that was also affecting my inner ear but that if I started to feel any numbness in my face or arms that I needed to return as it might be a stroke. So, in one visit a GP considered the possiblity of dizziness being related to a stroke while as far as we can tell Danny's expensive neurologist in Melbourne never seemed to once consider the possibility in several months. Grrr.
It amuses me that Danny the ex-drover and meat worker who has worked with blood and waded hip deep in shit gets grossed out by the sight of Lex with his food spread all over his face. Danny "I've waded through liquid shit" Oz just goes "Ewwwwww!"
I've had the inner ear thing earlier this year. It sucks. Numbness was not suggested as a problem to me, possibly because I could walk on my toes and heels without falling over.
Hope you feel better soon. Did you get given anything for it?
I must admit I hadn't thought of Danny's food issues as coming up in baby food feeding, but now that I do, I guess it would.
I had the spinning thing towards the end of my pregnancy (although not the feeling sick part). I eventually managed to complete all the tests they wanted me to do. CAT scan came back fine (yay, got to have a brain scan!). Then they did this thing where they put something on my forehead and then played various pitched sounds in each ear. Turns out I have an imbalance in my left ear in the fluid - something to do with the salt levels, and he told me to have a low salt diet.
