Thank you all for your prayers and concern. I saw the doctor on Friday, but didn’t get any answers. My ears looked fine, so that doesn’t seem to be the explanation for the dizziness or the headaches. I’m also experiencing some other symptoms that my doctor called “soft neurological symptoms,” and has ordered two tests to determine the cause. One, I will be having a CAT scan on my brain sometime soon – as soon as the insurance company forks over approval. Two, I will be doing a sleep study to see if I have sleep apnea, as lack of oxygen while sleeping can sometimes cause the symptoms I’m having.
If you’re the praying sort, I would appreciate your prayers. Pray not only that the doctors are able to find an answer, and that it’s nothing serious, but that God would grant me peace while I wait. One of my biggest fears, in fact the thing that brought on my anxiety problems during a health scare a couple years ago, is dying and leaving my children. I don’t fear death itself, but I fear leaving my children before they are grown. I’m trying not to completely freak out – and the doctor was kind enough to give me a refill on anxiety meds that I have taken in the past. So far, I haven’t had to take any except at night, when the “what-if” thoughts keep me from sleeping.
I’ll post a further update as soon as I know anything else.
