      Just got diagnosed with stage 3 lymes. While I am not happy about it, the positives are that st least I have a diagnosis.

        Yes there is some treatment - mainly antibiotics, and there are some herbal concotions that help. It might take a while but I am looking forward to a decent recovery - there are some issues with stage 3 where odd illnesses endure even though the tests for the bacteria are negative.

        Nobody knows what causes that, but I am focusing on just the next step in front of me,not worrying about the many of possibilities way out in to the future.

      Past 5 days I have developed balance and dizziness. Had vertigo twice in the middle of night. Menieres is looking likely.

        Not really - there is an operation that can be had, but thats worse case.

        Hope things have settled down a bit for you. Ménière's isn't easy to manage. Keep going

        Hey @vermillion could it be that its bearable because you are slowly but surely habituating? For me the more tolerance came from more acceptance. I forget mine all the time now. Hang in there, and enjoy your vacation man.

        @Mettafort I don't know. The sounds are louder and more intrusive post 8 months. Sure thing is that i have pass the panic attacks' stage. What i feel i cannot habituate to are the life changes.

        That said, I met one of the top ear specialists who was quite negative about the whole thing, and stated it was most likely Menieres. I am going to be doing the tests for Menieres specifically.

      It was not a raving success. Awake for hours, then on and off sleep till I eventually got up. Need another plan.

        Soon, you will be able to sleep without valium help, it takes about 3-4 months to habituate, youll see

        I have been doing ok with 5mg of V, which didnt seem like a high dose. It is only 5 weeks for me so I will keep an eye on the 3month window; thanks.

        I would love to find a safe sleeping aid that would provide me uninterrupted sleep. Sometimes i imagine myself popping a whole batch of benzos and sleep for 4 days. Or maybe a coma. Then i get back to reality. Hehe!

      Interrupted sleep, but a nap helped; now feeling pretty good. Tapering prednisone I think is helping my mood too.

        I can appreciate, from a different angle, that that is tough. I dont see you whining either; far from it.

      Hardest problem now is coping with not being able to listen to the music I love.

        @Markku I feel for you. Few weeks before T invasion, i started studying Beethoven on the piano. I used to listen to the sonatas all night long. Few days ago i tried to listen the 'moonlight sonata' while in bed. Next moment i was all in tears... Tinnitus is a cruel thief.

        @vermillion I feel for you. Not too long ago I discovered a Bon Iver track (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWcyIpul8OE) that connected me deeply with the father I never met. This track, in one ear, just doesnt have the same emotional experience it did when I first discovered it sadly.

        I do not want to sound pessimistic but not having the joy of music is a serious loss. It would be impossible for T-free people to understand this. Btw great song @Mettafort ! Thanx
