As you all know, I’ve been battling with vertigo over the past couple of months. I’ve done numerous medical tests and will finally get all the results on Monday. I’m a bit nervous as to what the results will be. One part of me hopes there’s nothing serious but the other part of me hopes that something was found in my tests and can be fixed. I just hate going through a bunch of tests just to find out that there was nothing in my blood/X-ray or whatever.
The last time I got sick with fever and pain over two years ago, all the tests came back normal and my family doctor ended up telling me that my illness was a result of my depression. Basically, in not so many words, he said it was all in my head and physically there was nothing wrong with me.
Could that possibly be true? I was severely depressed at the time. Could I have been so depressed that my mind made me sick? What if that were the same this time? But I’m not depressed these days. Of course I have an off day here and there, but I’m not (thank goodness) depressed like I was six months ago or a year ago.
I hope it’s not all in my head. Because I don’t know how to stop or cure it. Vertigo is not a nice thing to have and if my own mind is playing games with me and causing this vertigo, then how will I stop it? I hope my test results come back with some indication of something being wrong so that the ENT Specialist can help me resolve whatever’s wrong with my body.
Will check back in on Monday after my doctor’s appointment and let you guys know how it went. Until then, have a great weekend and stay healthy!
