Ugh! Sorry to hear this! I've been there, and I'm not even 30!

I had what was formally diagnosed as labrynthitis. An infection of the inner ear, but the type of infection that doesn't respond to antibiotics. My circumstance put me in the ER where they did a head CT, etc. Everything came back normal. Wound up essentially laid up for a month doing absolutely nothing. No work (thank goodness for short term disability), no nothing. Couldn't drive either. Mass quantities of meclezine (sp?) were consumed to try to counter act the nausea, etc. When I went back to work, I would say I was maybe 80 to 90% back to normal.

Keep us posted. Thoughts and prayers are with you and hubby.

I wish I could texasgirl, but I'm supposed to be cleaning my mom's house & then I have to go get my TB test done to take to the School District Office before TC & Savannah get out of school.

Well, no big awful disease as I was fearing.
Seams that as far as the dizziness, he may have a pinched nerve in his shoulder, which will also cause the numbness and weakness.

BUT, they are now watching his liver function test on the blood smears.
Seams that his ALT is a little high. Not too high to be immediately concerned with at this time. Though, DH does not drink and doesn't do drugs, the one thing he DOES do that can cause liver problems.....TYLENOL!!
He pretty much takes it as he can, every 4-6 hours for the pains in his body from working himself to death. He can't take ibufrofen for the fact that he has ulsers and a Hiatel Hernia. So, he is to take the Tylenol only when he absolutely needs it for the next month and then they are going to redo the blood work and see if that is what is elevating it, if not, I guess we'll get more tests. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!!


Oh yeah, BigDog, I feel for you. DH was going nuts with the vertigo, or what they said was vertigo. People don't realize how bad the stuff is until they are having the symptoms.
