Went to the ENT in Lincoln, NE yesterday afternoon with different ear symptoms since late January, and after having bronchitis. I had pulsing in my right ear that was driving me a little crazy, it interfered with sleeping, but it has improved the past 10 days.
Seems I have a tear in a membrane in my right ear. When I would cough, sneeze, or blow my nose, the room would jerk about 30 to 45 degrees. I quickly learned to grab ahold of something or sit down.
Since the pulsing is improving (almost gone), it means the tear is healing itself.
Trivia – seems weight lifters get this type of injury and need surgery to repair it. Mine came from really awful coughing with the bronchitis, my rib cage ached for days.
Trust me no weight lifting or bench pressing going on here, just fabric pressing. 🙂
Other good news, had an ear test and my hearing is normal.
If the pulsing noise in my right ear returns (it is almost gone), he will refer me to an Ear doctor for surgery.
Weird stuff that disrupts life and work. Happy the tear is mending itself and the symptoms will go away.
Sure been a long haul since October 9th when the inner ear virus struck and began my winter of illness.
Russ is very happy with this news also, since he has been driving me everywhere since Oct 9th. I’m looking forward to driving again, as I didn’t think it would be safe to drive when dizzy and well you know the rest.
Time to get back to the fun stuff we do and the stitching we love.
Can you hear the chorus — ‘happy days are here again’!!!!
