This started out well, as a cable design, but why ruin it with pottery on
the front????

 ok, i admit even i can't find any redeeming features for
those two :)
 what's with those ghastly colors of mohair? are they supposed
to be back in fashion? )please noooooooo!) and why put zig-zag
sleeves on an argyle patterned sweater?

Neither one would ever be on my list of things I'd like to wear, that's for
sure!

Speaking of designs/patterns making one dizzy...  I have found over the last
year or so that looking at some designs/patterns make me dizzy and if I
don't look away I feel as if I'm going to fall.  For instance, there is a
black & white skirt hanging in WalMart with a design something like
houndstooth, when I round the corner and head down that aisle it catches my
eye immediately and I seriously have to look away because it feels like I'm
going to hit the floor if I don't.  Also lately when I'm going down an
escalator I have to make sure *not* to look down at the steps... the lines
of the steps and the movement (I'm assuming) make me feel all wobbly... good
thing I'm holding the rail.

Katherine, does Keith have this problem too?  I read in one of the many
books I have gone through about Fibromyalgia that dizziness having to do
with patterns is one of the many symptoms... but I had never had this
problem until this past 1 1/2 to 2 years.  I'll have to ask a couple of
people I know here in town who have Fibromyalgia if they're having to deal
with that too.   Weird stuff.

Keith doesn't, but I do. I have Mineire's (sp?) syndrome, and that is one of
the symptoms. Sucks, doesn't it?

It sure does!  I used to like some of those types of patterns, and now...
*sigh*    Oh well, there are a lot of beautiful things to look at and
appreciate in the world, I guess I can live without those types of patterns.

Katherine, I just looked up Miniere's Syndrome which led me to Tinnitus
(which I have from time to time... nothing drastic enough that I need
medical treatment for.. just the occasional *high-pitch* squealing that goes
away after a few minutes).   That mentions a possible link to FMS
(Fibromyalgia, to anyone who doesn't know).

So, in light of the Tinnitus (not necessarily the link to FMS) and the fact
that even as a small child I (and my brother... and Matthew too) had a LOT
of ear infections/aches, and a few years ago I got a perferated (sp)
eardrum... I guess the inner ear thing is likely what makes me dizzy.  I
wonder what the connection is to patterns though.   hmmmm    I'll have to
see if there is anything out there about that.

Hey, this searching is keeping me out of trouble... in inside out of the
heat until the pool is ready to swim in.  ;o)

Re: More "lovely" sweater designs


This is interesting - I have constant tinnitus, probably due to having had
lots of ear infections as a child. I also find that certain patterns make me
dizzy, and it can be very difficult to iron stripy shirts, as it makes me
feel as though I'm about to fall over. (well, that's my excuse!) I wonder if
there's a link with the tinnitus?

Gem,  I wonder if you also get problems when you sit behind the computer
for long streches.  The invisible lines (the ones you see on TV when the
shot a computer screen, can be a real problem, even though you do not see
them your eye does)

I definitely get massive headaches from being at the computer for too long,
but then I get headaches at other times too, so I didn't really think about
it before.  Thank you for the idea though... something to think about.  :o)

Hi Gem,

I have benign positional vertigo and can't go down an escalator without
getting dizzy, I can go up them, but not down. I also have problems
when Tom wants me to watch a racing game on the TV or computer, I get
real dizzy so I don't do it.I too used to have terrible earaches when I
was a kid. They stopped when I was around 12 and had a real bad
nosebleed.
 Those sweaters would make anyone dizzy for sure.

Hugs,

Nora

Wow, pretty interesting, Nora.   Yes, my brother and myself used to have
awful earaches when we were little.  The doctor made special eardrops for us
because the stuff at the drugstore didn't help us.  My earaches eventually
faded away to only occasional ones, but I guess I must have passed it on to
Matthew who started having bad ear infections when he was a few months old.

Strangely (this just popped in my mind, but I doubt that it has anything to
do with earaches/infections... although they do say the throat is linked to
the ears) when I was little I also used to get swollen glands at least twice
a year (for sure in the spring and autumn).  Then when I was about 16 the
swollen glands stopped, and were replaced (also at least twice a year) with
strep-throat and laryngitis.  I still get those once in a while, but not
half as often as I used to.

Katherine it is spelled Ménieres.  Dr Ménieres was the man, in France, who
first noticed this disorder.  

Also when I went in to see my Dr two days ago, to renew my prescription of
Serc, a betahistine, he mentioned a new homeopathic drug to help with
dizzyness and nausea  It is called Ventigoheel and you can buy it over the
counter.  The third drug that many Menieres patients use is Tanganil, an
Acetylleucine.  That was prescribed to me, when I went cycling in Holland
in 1984, with Michelle, when she was a youngster.  I got a very bad attack
at that time and the local Dr. had me back on my feet in half a day, with
the Cerc and Tanganil.  The Tanganil, so far I have not been able to get
in Cananda, but my drugist is will ing to try it again for me.  It worked
very well at that time.

That's the one, Els. LOL I was too lazy to look it up. Isn't that pathetic?
I have Cerc, but have not needed it for a long time, thank goodness. I think
that once I stopped diving, I was fine. No more symptoms at all. Do you
still have episodes?

The pottery is a bad pun.  It's in the location of "jugs".
That's no excuse, but it's quite possibly the reason.
