I Hate When They Say, "It's going to get worse before it gets better."

October has been a crazy ride! After weekly appointments of seeing a physical therapist, a chiropractor, an acupuncturist and a massage therapist, I can say without a doubt that my quality of life has taken a bit of a nosedive. The last couple of weeks have been a real challenge. My balance has been tested to it's limits and once again I am having to be ever aware of my surroundings so I don't knock things over. I have become more sensitive to light and certain noises so now I am back to desensitizing my brain to all this stimuli. I was able to do well on the standard 8 hours of sleep a night but now I am needing on average 10-12 hours (including naps). Yup things have gotten worse. Was it worth it? I will let you know the end of November. I am hoping that by shaking up my system I can reach a higher level of wellness than what I had the beginning of October. It's a long and arduous process that includes so much trial and error. So here I am - back to those baby steps!

Sometimes I notice the change of seasons, barometric pressure can cause a lot of problems. I'm so sorry you have had a rough month. I am doing the same, acupuncture, energetic work, even having my ear 'lasered' to see if that can help. I notice coffee, chocolate and salt will trigger episodes and if I do all in one day, I am sure to be hit upside the head in no time. I gave up alcohol years ago for same reason. Good luck, hope you get better really soon!
