So, for the last 2 weeks i've had "Labyrinthitis"....
Basically, it's like being physically very drunk but mentally sober, and the more physically drunk I feel, the more sick I feel. My balance mechanism in my ear is screwed.
When I don't move or look around, I have no symptoms other than a general haziness. I've never heard of this. Takes a lot for me to go the Doc but when the symptoms kicked in, I genuinely panicked! It hit me one day but just a little, and I assumed I just needed an early night as I wasn't getting much sleep. Later that night I was coaching people, demonstrated something that involved laying on my back then standing up, and the gym started spinning around me. The next morning could barely lift my head off the pillow. I got these pills that are supposed to stop the dizzyness and sickness and, i'm not saying they don't work but, they knock me out so I don't get a chance to feel the effects.
I train an Ear-Nose-'n'-Throat surgeon, who recommended I look these up - http://www.entkent.com/Cawthorne-Cooksey.html
So i've went from almost getting my +500lbs deadlift and +400lbs squat back, to training eye movement and walking with my eyes closed. Things are improving, not sure if they are just improving because they are improving, or improving because i'm doing my staring exercises.
I deadlifted a few days ago, and I squatted yesterday. I'm still not right but the training never made me feel any worse so i'm assuming I can get away it. I can't lay on my back without the room spinning so benching is out so OH press it is for the foreseeable future.
I don't have a point, i'm just ranting. I miss having a clear head.
