My ENT questioned me a lot about previous head injuries. I had had one in 2007. I still have the indent in my head from it and most of my doctors tell me I am lucky to be alive.
Anyway my ENT said that I had shook loose the crystals in my ears, and that is what is causing my dizziness -- not fluid in my ears. I learned something new that day as I did not even know that we had crystals in our ears and that they helped us keep our balance.
Which reminds me, in 2007 my neurosurgeon told me that crawling on my knees like a infant would help to bring my balance to my brain. Well it helped but I still have short term memory loss. The act of crawling and the shaking the head back and forth like an infant is how an infant gets balance to learn to walk with out falling over.
Anyway, it is time to rest my brain from all the memories of 2007.
Oh by the way, I was diagnosed with scleroderma in 2008, about one year to the day of the head injury.
