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?
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)
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?

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.
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)
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
Those sweaters would make anyone dizzy for sure.
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?
