Vertigo

I went to the doctor today. Normally I would just let it pass, but I figured I should go get checked out for two reasons. 1) I am getting pretty irritated with the pukey feeling and 2) I'm getting back on a plane on Monday for another trip and am worried about some sort of underlying problem.

Anyway, its what I kind of assumed I had. A virus that appears to have affected my inner ear, giving me a lot of dizzyness and nausea. He thinks the virus should pass soon, but the vertigo might linger. I dont need any sort of medicine, but he prescribed me something for motion sickness to help get through this.

Hopefully you all will not hear me complain any more about this and I can finally get back to business. Next race on my calendar? The Shamrock Shuffle 8K - March 21st ;)
