Oh no, are you ill? Or hung over?
Ménière's disease is a wonderful thing. For those who don't have it.
I had to look it up; it sounds awful. I hope you can at least manage the symptoms.
And sorry to derail Quack's thread.
(from Quack's birthday thread, so as not to derail).
The only way so far I've found to cope with the symptoms is taking some antiemetics and stay laying down in a dark room, with as few visual and auditory stimuli as possible.
The annoying part for me (ie, with regard to my professional life) is the temporary lateral deafness. A few weeks ago, I was a guest singer at a gig in Nice, and was totally deaf in my left ear. As my stage monitor was to my left, I had almost no feedback and hilarious out-of-key singing ensued.
But really, pucking about 15 times a day is not all it's cracked up to be. Taking a shot of vodka around noon, however, kind of reduces the dizziness and vertigo. I'd like to get the surgery to resolve the problem, but there's a 50/50 chance that I'll lose my hearing in one or both ears, so I'm not taking that risk yet (bread and butter, mixing new album's demo, yadayada...)
Ugh, my father has it, and I'm showing early signs.
Much love, brother.
