I have been off the boards for awhile. I had gentamicin drops for 27 days in summer of 2019. After a bit of recovery, I lived a very full life. Minor moments of the familiar whoosh feeling but quickly gone. Ear pressure that was relieved with an ear tube. Fast forward to this November, I got COVID. A few days in I had a day where I was so weak and dizzy I couldn't function. It wasn't vertigo as I knew it, just very dizzy and off balance and like my eyes didn't work. Eventually it wore off but I haven't been right since. Along with other symptoms, the COVID gave me extreme sinus pressure and loss of taste/smell. Plus, my ear tube had fallen out a month or so prior to getting sick. But the weather held out so I wasn't in a rush to get it replaced. Well, since I informed my doctor of what's happening she wants me to do a hearing test and a rotary chair to rule out it coming from my good ear. I AM TERRIFIED! I don't think anyone other than us gets how scary and relentlessly anxiety producing the concept of inducing dizziness is for us. I wish she'd just let me put in the tube and see if that helps and maybe do more gentamicin in my already damaged ear. But I must abide by what she wants so.... Can you please tell me if you have had this? Offer any tips and support? Tell me it isn't as bad as what I'm picturing? That I won't throw up for hours or at all? Thank you, and hugs to all. Happy I found my way back in after a million password and username fails.
