    So, this is the bit where I ask the audience if any of you mofos or mofettes have ever had this seemingly innocent yet utterly debilitating illness?

    If so, any advice?



    Oh, aikido ukemi for the win this weekend.
    I have been having the same problem I didn't think they had a name for it. Have ou been to the doctor? I haope it doesn't affect my TD participation this weekend.

    Sexually Transmitted, no doubt you dirty bugger.

    Is this a virus which weakened your muscles causing it to tear or were you really coughing that violently?

    Is any of this a side effect of dehyrdation or is it strictly your infection?

    Have they check to make sure none of this is related to meningitis?

    Have you lost any hearing?

    I wonder if any of those accupressure anti-nausea bands would help.

    Yes. However, the floor tends to arrest my progress before any definitive data can be charted.

    Post-missing TD anger + lots of heavy weights at the YMCA + boxing + 23 hr flight + 5 hr drive home after landing = very rundown sochin with a possibly pulled muscle, which turned into a good old fashioned rip with the coughing of DOOM. I'm THAT gay.
    I mean, I hung around a YMCA in Australia looking for some action.

    Viral infection. I'm very well hydrated.

    He did all the tests. Balance, eye movement. There's apparently a characteristic eye movement which is a dead giveaway. I did it. I'm so money.

    Pardon? LOLZ. Nope. All's as it should be.

    I did actually try some accu-pressure massage, but I managed to pressure point knockout myself.

    here's a few facts on what I have, to see if you have similar, or are just really, really drunk:
    Labyrinthitis is an inflammation of a structure in your inner ear called the labyrinth. You have a labyrinth in your inner ears, deep in the bone at the base of your skull. It contains the delicate structures that control your hearing and balance.
    Each labyrinth is a maze of inter-connected channels filled with fluid. These channels are at different angles. When your head moves, the rolling of the fluid tells your brain how far, how fast and in what direction your head is moving. This information allows your body to balance properly. Part of the labyrinth, called the cochlea, also sends information about sounds to your brain. This is how you hear.
    If the organs that control balance of your infected ear are inflamed, then the information they send to your brain will be different from the information sent from your unaffected ear and from your eyes. This difference can make you feel dizzy, or you may feel you are moving when you are still (vertigo). If the hearing portion of the labyrinth is inflamed then your hearing can be affected.
    Labyrinthitis is usually caused by a viral infection. Less commonly, it can be caused by a bacterial infection. It is usually a mild condition that passes within a few weeks, although some cases are more serious and can do permanent damage to your hearing and balance. Labyrinthitis can affect people of any age, but it is rare in children.

    and more:
    The symptoms of labyrinthitis can include:
    • dizziness,
    • a feeling of spinning or moving when you are still (vertigo),
    • loss of balance, especially towards your affected side,
    • feeling sick,
    • vomiting,
    • headache,
    • uncontrollable flickering of your eyes (nystagmus),
    • changes in your hearing such as ringing in your ears (tinnitus), and
    • deafness.
    If your symptoms include dizziness or vertigo, initially these symptoms are likely to be constant, but after a few days you should only feel them when you move your head.
    The symptoms of labyrinthitis can come back once they have gone. This means that you should be careful about driving, working at heights, or operating heavy machinery for at least 1 week from the time your symptoms end.

    Yep.
    Betahistamine dihydrochloride (I think). It's a vestibular suppressant. Which means it suppresses the symptoms. The body fights the virus the normal way like it would a cold.

    You should get checked up in case you have the bacterial version. That can be treated with anti-biotics and it's a much quicker recovery. However, the bacterial version is more likely to leave lasting complications (loss of balance, hearing, tinnitus. Galloping cock-rot. Ok. Joking about the cock-rot).

    Sochin, so sorry to hear you're not feeling 100%.

    Did the doctor say how long it would take for the virus to be cleared up with medication?

    I hope all the fuckers making fun of Sochin get a severe case of viral labryinthitis.
