Oy vey. Still have ringing ears, occasional dizziness, and now have developed some sort of blockage in my right ear – I get dizzy when it pops or when I blow my nose. But it’s manageable – I figured out some triggers and have been trying my best to prevent any serious vertigo episodes.. only had one and two halves (I did not throw up those two times so that counts as half each) since then!
Back when my allergies were worse than ever in the spring of 2018, I got referred to an allergist to see if I developed any new ones. The ones here are quite busy and my appointment was set for mid-November 2018. Fast forward to September, I saw the doctor again due to vertigo issues and he suspected it’s to do with my allergies; a possibility it’s due to chronic sinusitis DUE to allergies. Joy. He prescribed me dizziness medication (it’s helping a bit) and decided to also refer me to an ENT as well to get all bases covered. There’s only one ENT doctor here in Victoria and I was booked for March 2019. I was really hoping the allergist could help somewhat with all this crap I’m going through so I don’t have to tolerate it until March. Finally in November, I saw the allergist and no new allergies. Still allergic to grass. (Grass season is only through June and July. So why do I have allergy symptoms throughout most of the year? ) She prescribed me nasal spray until the ENT appointment. It has been very helpful so far but quite expensive so hopefully it’s not something I have to live on!
My attempt at becoming vegan was a fail. I somehow developed a sensitivity to beans, I do not like most nuts, and I’m very picky with vegetables & fruits so it was a struggle to keep myself healthy and full. I’m right now mostly vegetarian, I can have eggs which has been helpful. I rarely have dairy (some cheese here and there) but have already been like that for three years now. I eat meat maybe two times a week. I will be taking some time to really learn what I can enjoy eating as a vegan before I actually become one.
On a positive note, I finally started BodyBoss this week… had to put it off due to getting dizziness several times then got sick over the holidays. So far, my body is tolerating it so hopefully I can actually complete the program this time!
