Just been to the gp, not much help but at least he's honest. He admits most doctors don't know what causes it, it's generally thought to be an infection. Another week off work more tablets and if no change by end of next week it's off to the specialists.


Hope the new tabs work!

Hopefully there will be enough difference between them that the decision will be easy.

Oh, and I don't know if this will help, but I've heard of people getting around the "no painting" policy by offering to have the apartment professionally painted white again when they move out and the manager accepted that offer.

Could it be Labrynthitis?
Check here
It says on that webpage it is rare but I know a few people who've had it, including me and my dad, and yeah it is bloody awful! Mine came on incredibly quickly and I couldn't walk at all.
It's generally a 3 week recovery, some people have it for longer, and one woman I knew at work had it for about 10 weeks :-/

I hope you feel better soon

Yes at least he was honest. Another week seems reasonable. Make sure you go to an ENT who deals with vertigo issues, not just an ENT. I was sent to an ENT who was a total jerk and basically told me a lot of people are dizzy and it could be a lot worse. Well, thanks! How helpful! I wanted to send him a note after I had surgery but I refrained. I was too relieved that I felt better.

Thanks Sunny, that sounds as if it may fit. He did also mention the "Labrynth of the Inner Ear" when he was talking about most guys not knowing.

Thanks Anne, I really appreciated his honesty, I felt that the guys at the hospital were either humouring me or just plain guessing, didn't fill me with confidence to say the least. I like my GP for this reason he's always been honest and frank with me. I'll do as he says till next week then I'll insist he refers me to a specialist, In saying that it may not be needed as I'm feeling a little better everyday. Also wore my glasses today which made a difference too (may just be psychological).

Ya, I have heard of this too. I know some people have this in their lease that they will either paint it, or pay the building to have it painted back. One of my friends buildings you are allowed to paint, but they wanted you to keep it to neutrals and had to have the colours approved. You might be able to guess that I'm not big on neutrals! (although there will be some, but also giant pops of colour). But worse case, I have seen a lot of lovely decor lately with white walls and just really awesome arts/furniture/etc

Great News, Hope you get sorted.

You could always go with the minimalist look, I hear that's back in.

Haven't had a chance to check the board in a few days.

Dubz, I hope the pills help and that you feel better soon. I'm sorry that you still feel bad after so many days!

I like that excuse, I like stuff as well but to most here my stuff are dust collectors. The minimalist look is huge in Denmark but I want a home to be a home not like a dentists/doctors waiting room. Sterile look is what I call it
