Hey there.. me again...lol

I was wondering what the lighthededness feels like? I have been having lightheadedness that feels like it's coming from my inner ears, but they can't find anything wrong with my ears... Also a buzzing sound in my hears like tinitus.. All I know is that it throws me f and I lose my balance really easily.. It's usually worse in the AM and gradually subsides quite a bit by PM, but not all the way gone..

The weird part is that it gets better as the day wears on.  For me, everything gets worse as the day wears on.  Fatigue is a huge factor for me. 
I have chronic vertigo (the sensation of movement) from three lesions on my cerebellum.  I am dizzy pretty much all of the time.  I have to abstain from driving on a bad day.  Usually it is mild and you do get used to it. 
I have also had my ears checked and rechecked for ear infections and the like.  No such luck.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I will live with no limits.

Dang Gretchen.. it get's worse for you as the day goes on??? You poor thing!! At lest I can be assured (For now anyway) that it will subside mostly by the late afternoon... then by the time I go to bed I feel pretty much ok and get ready for the next episode the next morning.. lol..

When I wake up and first start going is when its the worst.. not devestating, but enough to make me not want to move around much..
Then I FORCE myself to go outside and feed the chickens and horses and clean my chicken coop.. sometimes when I'm through with that it's a little bettter..

Today it lasted pretty much all day.. I even thought I'd go to town and get a couple of new fish for my aquarium and have a little fun.. Well it was OK, but I wasn't having the great time I thought I would because I just felt so darn weird and foggyheaded... I came home, met with a therapist for the first time, came home again from that and been crashing on the couch ever since... lol...

With my vertigo it kinda like constant movement, but not so much when I'm completely still ... but when I'm moving, it's like my movements are exaggerated...... and when I talk, my head feels funny too and sometimes just the talking can make me feel dizzy, even if I'm not moving.. This is the weirdest thing I've ever gone through... Just writing this all down and trying to make sure it makes sense to people is making me loopy.. lol... (just a joke).. hahaha

Ok, it's late and I'm off to bed.. we'll see how I feel in the AM... Gnite everyone!
