Being a tad tipsy is a relatively rare event in my everyday experiences, since I am essentially a teetotaler.
However, the ear problem mentioned in a previous post seems to be instigating a state of being disoriented, indicating an inner ear disturbance, rather than the more common middle ear infection..
My physician said the ear appeared to be infected. After a "water gun" treatment (her description) did not clear the debris, she gave me an antibiotic-steroid prescription ear drop sample to use for three days and return in one week.
Despite no pain, I have this allusion of being inebriated, dizzy and somewhat nauseous with deafening, persistent "ringing, buzzing sound 24/7. To be inoccuous (I hope), it is driving me CRAZY!
Today my Toyota Highlander needed a routine checkup; I had made an appointment with a dealership in Harrison AR, about 50 miles away. My husband drove as it was about an 100-mile round trip. I didn't need a patrolman to stop me for erratic driving. I'd have a hard time telling the above story.
However, I should pass the Breathalyzer test, but walking a straight line--debatable.
I have several duties on my calendar before my follow-up appointment Sept. 15. Fortunately, all are in my small town where I am well known for being sober...I think.
And to further disturb my day, Luckie snitched a package of Voortman's Sugar Free Peanut Butter Wafers, eating the entire contents of an opened package. My husband thinks there were only 1-3 wafers left.
I've read where some artificial sweeteners are near deadly for dogs. This package had a substance called sorbitol, a sugar alcohol. Sorbitol's side effect in humans is mainly diarrhea. In dogs, I don't know. However, it is 12 hours later, and I haven't noticed anything unusual.
Until I sober up.............yeah, I know what you are thinking...likely story.
