Holy Dizziness Batman!

I thought it would pass...But after 2 weeks, I decided it was time to call my Neurologist.

I'm typically the one who toughs it out when it comes to things like this...Heck, when I had mono last year, my hubby practically had to nail the bedroom door shut, to keep me from trying to get up to clean or deal with the family.  

But I have learned this hard lesson...If I don't take care of myself...I could getting sicker...then what?

I made a call to my Neurologist this week, to schedule a check up...which I know will end in being given an MRI to check the status of my hydrocephalus and brain tumor.  I am half nervous and find out the cause of my daily dizziness.  More just anxious for an answer, I guess.

The hydrocephalus I have in short is-Untreatable.  The tumor is called a lipoma, which hasn't grown in 3 yrs.  So I have no idea why I have been having these dizzy spells.

So...Monday, it's off to the Neuro to hopefully get some answers!

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!


  1. Hi! I have NF too. Are you saying the dizziness might be caused by the NF? I've been having on and off dizziness since October. I went to my doctor. She suggested Meclizine (medication) and a visit to a physical therapist for an ocular type treatment called Epley (it seemed to do the trick temporarily but not permanently). If your doctor gives you any suggestions for dizziness with NF I would love to know what they are!

    1. Virtigo is a common complaint with people that have NF. With MY case, the Drs are thinking it has more to do with my hydrocephalus.
      I didn't really have much problems with dizziness until recently....I will probably blog about what I find out on Monday. :)

  2. PS: How can I get a bracelet in the photo? My mom and I both have NF.

  3. I took the link to order down, for now....Because I am in the process of re-ordering. I will let you know when I get more :)
