My visit to the Neurology department

As i mentioned in my last post, i had an appointment today with a Neurology consultant at my local hospital.

She was a lovely lady who examined me and told me the dizziness and fainting is nothing to do with any brain damage, which is good as a junior doctor in my local surgery who referred me had said he thought it was to do with a brain problem! ( He thinks i’m nutty, how very dare he)

I’m been referred to the ENT department and have also had some blood taken to check i have sufficient Vitamin B in my body as apparantly Chemotherapy can mess with ones immune system and can make one vitamin B deficient.


The Consultant mentioned my inner ear and  how a fault caused by the chemotherapy can affect the nerves in my inner ear so affecting my balance.

I now have to wait to hear from my own doctor for further tests and the blood results.


  1. Glad to hear that it isn't a brain injury! I think John takes a B6 vitamin every day.

  2. Don't you wish inner ears could be moved to the outside, for easy sorting? I do ! LOL
