My ears have been bothering me a lot today, mostly because it’s been really windy. It’s a constant reminder I may have permanent hearing loss due to one of the micro strokes. I hope I’m wrong, but I would rather expect the worst and be wrong than get my hopes up and have them dashed.

I suppose the disconcerting thing is I told the doctor what the clinic said and he mostly shrugged it off and repeated that he wants the neurological evaluation as soon as possible. Doesn’t sound promising , but there it is,



I’m not sure what’s going to happen from this point but I doubt life is going to trend upward. I am still having issues with my hearing despite being on meds for the past five days, which was suppose to clear things up which means I’m still effectively deaf in my left ear.

On the other hand…

The doctor found some issues with my MRI and is scheduling an appointment with a neurologist. I do have an appointment with him next week so maybe I’ll get some answers.
