Labyrinthitis (swelling of the fluid-filled tubes and sacs in the ears). I have had hearing loss and slight ringing/static in left ear for several days now. Yesterday I woke up with extreme vertigo. I couldn't even sit up without triggering severe nausea. I was able to see my doctor in the afternoon and got some meds prescribed, although the appointment was very unpleasant. Ears and nose did not look infected. No other symptoms like fever or congestion.
Most of the time I am okay if I am flat on my back,
but I have been able to tolerate sitting for very short periods. Just
walking to bathroom and back is very hard. And even on meds, worst of the symptoms can last a
week on average, slowly improving after that.
So based on all that, I've decided to take a short break from blogging. Once I can reliably sit and stand, I'll gladly get back to it.
