GAS 169 Posted September 25, 2010 Share Posted September 25, 2010 Hey everyone, I hope some of you may be able to offer me a recommendation or point me in the right direction. I am in the States right now but do not have health insurance at the moment being self employed, I can afford to pay out of pocket to a point...will not get far here, so I want to try and get some help when I am back in BKK in a a few weeks. I woke up last Sunday night with sweats, the room spinning and then about 12 hours of throwing up. I chalk this up to food poisoning but I am not sure. This is the third time in about 5 years I have experienced this. The last episode was about 2 1/2 years ago. My problem is I am experiencing severe vertigo, well it starts severe, and then tapers off...I get a little better each day, now nearly 7 days after I am much better but still nowhere near 100%. Last time this happened in 2008 I went to a doctor after I was well enought to get out of bed and they said it may not have been food poisoning but a viral infection. I was prescribed Meclazine 25mg to help with the dizziness. Three nights ago I did see an ER doc here in the US who said I need to see and ear, nose and throat doc to find out what is going on...and rule out Meniers disease. This doc also prescribed Meclazine 25mg 3x day and it has little to no effect, it just seems it takes time to clear up. My thinking is a little "hazy" and if I move my head quickly in any direction I tend to lose my positional awareness and balance. The first couple days after being able to get out of bed I walked around like I was drunk! Finally, in this episode, during the last few days I have also experienced very minor Tinnitus in my left ear and a numbness in my face, mainly around my mouth and lips. I am an otherwise healthy 35 yo male. Can you guys give me any suggestions as to who I might seek out in BKK to figure out what is going on with me? Any ideas what I might be experiencing? Any help is greatly appreciated...am a bit worried about this and it is surely no fun trying to work and get things done being a dizzy fog all day!! THANKS!!
