I woke up yesterday and the hearing in my left ear is down, and I felt a bit off-balance. I slept for 4 hours in the middle of the day. Then I felt much better, but still my hearing was off. I went on to have a nice night with my friends.
This morning I woke up and my hearing in my left ear is still diminished quite a bit. When I turn my hearing aids on it plays 5 notes, I could only hear 2 of them in my left ear. So, I’m simply not hearing certain frequencies. Today I took it easy. Still no spinning, but I’ve got the advanced warning signs. Hopefully, it won’t happen…but.
I’m very stressed tonight, and got very upset earlier. I know stress can exacerbate Meniere’s symptoms, but we all know, you just can’t turn off our emotions or what is going on around us.
My friends who were visiting this week left this morning. I will miss them. I wasn’t able to do a lot this week. We went to a very nice party on Monday, but on Tuesday I woke with a sore throat and just didn’t feel well. I thought I was in the sun too much on Monday and didn’t drink enough, but the symptoms continued. I still have a scratchy throat. I don’t know if I have a very, very slight cold, or if I have allergies. My bet is on the allergies, but really I just don’t know.
Wish me luck that my Meniere’s warnings don’t turn into an attack.
