Please pray for me - Tests are being done
« on: January 20, 2011, 11:34:06 PM »
Dear Fathers and members,

Please pray for me as I must undergo multiple tests: two MRIs, a BAER, and an ENG for dizziness and double-vision.
The dizziness and double-vision have increased so that I am nauseated most of the time.
The doctor thinks that I may have had one or more mini-strokes as the left side is weaker.

Thank you.

In Christ,

Maria

Thanks

I am starting to feel better. The doctor gave me some eye and positional exercises to do. These exercises have temporarily increased my vertigo.

I just completed the four tests yesterday and today.

Please keep me in your prayers. I am so dizzy. The tests aggravated the vertigo.

Please continue to pray for me.

The doctor recommended major surgery, but I am going to wait.

He said that I have a mild extended/expanded (dolichoectasia) vertebrobasilar artery (impacting the VII and VIII CN bundles) along with peripheral vestibular disorder that are causing vertigo and double vision.

Please pray for me.

Thank you very much for your prayers.

I have to get a second opinion. If anyone knows a good neuro-vascular surgeon, please PM me.

In the meantime, I am praying and trying to remain focused on the Lord and His mercy.
