i’m feeling much better without carbs and sugar. i’m hoping to see more weight loss by my official weigh-in on mon.
i’m trying hard to give thanks for where i’m at despite the fact that i’ve missed my major WL goals. i am pre-preg weight of baby #4. i have two more babies to go, 20 lbs. i ran for 2.5 miles today. this my first run since the onset of my vertigo. i felt much better than anticipated. my callouses are fading so my feet were slightly raw and sore.
thanks for giving me a tip on the vertigo. it prompted me to look it up again. i came to the conclusion that my vertigo was triggered by a head injury. i’ve had similar symptoms post pregnancy but nothing like what i recently experienced. my condition started immediately after a soccer game. i headed the ball on 2 occasions. both were high impact and caused some immediate dizziness. i was able to regain my composure and continued with the first half. i became extremely light headed at the start of the second half. i wanted to sit out but thought that my dizziness was due to my lack of fitness and hydration. i continued to play. i lost my vision on my way home while driving. rose and i prayed the whole way. still, i passed it off and thought i was in need of food. i stopped at the nearest fast food, taco bell. i could barely take in 2 bites. i was nauseous. finally i arrived to where dad was and i couldn’t even keep my eyes open. i felt like i just stepped off a roller coaster. i couldn’t even walk without guidance. dad thought i had a concussion. it was worse than labor. ok, maybe not that bad but you know what i mean. i experienced excessive vomiting. i slept for the entire weekend.
the symptoms continued up to the present time. they were much milder and intermittent.
i found this link after your post. i decided to perform the simple exercise that was suggested. i haven’t had any symptoms since.
i’m praying that it’s gone for good. i desperately need to get back to training. also, my family will be embarking on a pilgrimage that requires us to walk 13-15 miles a day for 3 days. we will be camping along the way. i need to be free from the dizziness.
lets keep moving!
