A new oldie
« on: Jul 23 2011, 10:22 PM »
On a more serious note, Hello to everyone, I have had diagnosed MD for10 years but it took the docs 10 years to say it ,it started with an infection and just got worse, with drop attacks, weeks in bed ,dehydration and so on scans, grommets, drain tubes, and tablets.  Raging Tinnitus, deaf in both ears, two hearing aids, very unsteady on my feet i use my eyes and a gritty determination to get buy ,but at 60 its getting the better of me slowly, i have had to give up work i am a self employed carpenter/joiner and it was getting dangerous ,but i will remain positive and i go and see another specialist in September a different one, anyway good night all 8)

Hi Tony

Welcome to the site.  Sorry things are really bad for you but keep pushing to try and find the right treatment.  Have you looked into having gent?  A lot of people on this site have had it with good results so look through all the posts on here and do your research and be ready and armed for when you see the specialist and don't leave the room until you are satisfied.

Lots of lovely people on here and feel free to ask anything no matter how stupid you think it maybe because I do it all the time! Lol.

Never give into it and stay strong.
