    Apologize for bringing this up. It is reason for announcing break. I know there is nothing no one can do or say to help the situation. My health care people don't know either. I won't be posting unless I have something good to say. When I feel up to it I will look in. Later gators.

    Hoping that your doctors can get a handle on this, @Bill Boggs , and you start feeling better again soon ! Please at least drop by when you feel up to writing , to let us know that you are doing okay, and more when you are able to write posts without being too dizzy.
    Have they checked for an ear problem ?
    Sometimes, just an imbalance in the ears can make a person feel dizzy and light-headed when you move suddenly, like standing up after sitting or lying down.

    Monday is a bad day to call the VA. Going to call tomorrow or the next day to report my ups and downs during November
    and maybe request a little stonger medication for one of my pills.
    Starting using that wheelchair this morning. Was so light-headed after breakfast was afraid I'd fall and to break a hip or
    most any bone at my age is going to be problematic. I'm not as woozy sitting as standing and sometime sitting not woozy
    at all. Using a wheelchair in my little house is somewhat akin to the bull in the china closet and what I find most troublesome
    is that long oxygen tubing. But all things considered, that's only an inconvience.

    Forgive me for being a bossy old nag, Bill, but I really wish you would see a doctor in person. I don't think he can diagnose your problem over the phone.

    @Bill Boggs Oh dear Bill! First of all our inner ear mechanism begins to malfunction from years of use as we grow older. Nothing can be done about this. Dizziness is an inner ear problem. There are so many factors to consider as to what is causing it. Most times it is from a surge of endolymph fluid that may be caused by disease, medication, diet, etc. This didn't bother us as much when we were younger because of sac containing the fluid was stronger. It is now weaker and will not keep the + charged potassium of the endolymph fluid from reacting to the surrounding - charged sodium which causes dizziness. All you can do is keep your blood sugar levels as constant as possible and this applies even if one is NOT diabetic. Yes, the doctors are right that your inner ear is getting a restricted blood flow. Things to avoid are aspirin. alcohol, smoking, and refined SUGAR. Balance your protein, carbs, and fats every meal. Eat 5 or more meals a day. Unless we can find the fountain of youth and restore our worn inner ear, we go forward realizing our balance is not what it used to be. We figure out a way to live with it best we can.
