Hi all, I am new here. I was hoping to find support for MD, which I was diagnosed with 2 years ago. Not needing any medical advice, just want to hear your experiences. So, I get all the classic symptoms of MD (yet nausea is not one of them?). The room spins (vertically, not horizontally). I can't distinguish an increased incidence of hearing loss or tinnitus during the episode but I certainly notice it in general. Mild right ear hearing loss. Anyways, this has impacted my life to such a degree I am just nearing the end of my rope. I am an ICU nurse and clearly I need to be at my best to be safe/effective. I had to leave work the other day, and have called out the last 2 days because of it. I have FMLA. I called out today because I thought I'd try the HCTZ they gave me and it tanked my pressure. I had to drink 2 liters of water to fix it. I feel like I get judgment from my coworkers, and a total lack of understanding. They don't understand that this goes on for hours at a time and is debilitating. I sense some resentment because absences mess up the staffing, and during COVID that is an issue. I need this job, I need this income. My mental health is in the tank. I just don't know how to do this anymore. Even seeing a therapist, it still seems like I don't have much hope. I'm having PTSD from working the COVID units, and no doubt that is exacerbating the MD. I don't know what to do.
