        I think it being predicated on autophagy of damaged tissues you'd likely have to push longer than that for results, but that's just a hunch.

      This study showed how treating palatial myoclonus treated a patient's depression so what did they conclude? (Discussion continued below)

        But essentially, they concluded that Botox must be an anti-depressant because he felt less depressed after treatment. Couldn't possibly be that his symptoms were making him depressed.

        Meniere's was a misdiagnosis (the fact that my vertigo episodes lasted up to 48 hours actually excludes Meniere's but my first ENT didn't know that). But sure, ask away!

        @Forever hopeful , 24 hours is considered the upper limit. I had two episodes longer, with my longest around 48 hours of full rotational vertigo. Edit: post episode dizziness is not included in that.

        My local otologist is useless. Last time I had to travel to another state and that doctor has since retired from clinical practice. I'm resting it because mine appears to be mostly TTTS related and I'm trying to help the muscle relax. After that period, I'm going to slowly reintroduce low level sound. This is my own plan and I'm winging it.

My very distant 3rd guess is Infj because your statuses have this quality where you want to talk about your feelings but kind of don't (which admittedly is just a bad Infj stereotype).

        @FGG oh yes! Reading out loud is definitely my weak point. I can't follow a sentence. I guess I'm an academic (though that sounds pretty pompous) so I'm writing a lot. BUT, I'm incredibly slow at that too. Though it's more to do with concentration rather than anything else. Do you have concentration issues? What do you do for work?

        @Steph1710 , I was a veterinarian. Haven't been able to practice since my hearing issues. Funnily enough, when I was a kid, I dreamed of being a fiction writer. I have actually written probably 100+ short stories and even a novel I was in the process of editing that I just can't focus on now. My dyslexia isn't at all severe, just "annoying" but reading out loud is seriously the worst of it.

        I have so many conclusions different from the authors. I think it's possible that the cats are so much smarter that they sensed the whole thing being an act. My cat senses everything. If I'm even a little sad, she stares at me intently. She's very attached to me and treats me like her biological mother (I'm also attached).
