    Maybe you just need to have a cold one Since your vision is already acting up a few cold ones should clear it up If not then you won't care anyway Is there any way to get help from the federal level???

    Lol!! I could most definitely use a few cold ones!! I have no idea how to go about going to a federal level. I don't qualify for Medicaid.

    Sheila we are all pulling for you to get a quick resolve to all of this you are having to go through! This might sound crazy but, have you had your thyroid tested? A friend of mine had similar symptoms you've had like sensitivity to bright light, vision disturbances and dizzy spells and it ended up being her thyroid. I don't know much about how fast doctor's are when it comes to determining disability but I imagine it is a pretty long process. Surely with three doctor's agreeing on the same thing it won't be much longer.

    I do believe that they did test my thyroid. I will have to ask. I have had 2 CAT scans, an EEG, EKG and have seen 3 specialists. I just need to know what is going on. When I have an episode, it can last anywhere from 30 minutes to all day. I see multiple images and I have zero balance. I rarely get to leave my house now because they are so random and much more often. It is pretty scary.

    Okay, just wondered because I was going to ask you the other day but it sounds like they have really put you through the tests. That is scary that you don't know when you are going to start feeling that way, plus having little ones to take care of. It's probably best to not venture out without your hubby until all this settles. Thank you for the updates, we are all hoping for the best for you and your family.

    I have had so much going on, I honestly don't remember. I will have to find out. When I have been to the hospital, I am so bad off that I am not sure what is going on. I don't have ringing in my ears and I don't feel like the room is spinning. I have also had this for about 7 years. It has just gotten severe this past year and a half.

    Inner ear issues do not always make things spin... Just take care of yourself and let us know how things are going... We are here!!!
