What it is …

November 23, 2009

…is apparently Cochlear Meniere’s syndrome.

Brought on by an overload of salt in my diet.

And will be eliminated by steroids and a low-salt diet.

Or at least that’s what young Dr. Kildare thinks it is. Because old Dr. Marcus Welby is home sick with fever. (I sure hope he santized before examining me Friday.)

Do we believe him? Will my hearing go back to normal?

We shall see.

About a week, he says.

There is nothing that suggests middle ear bones are screwed up enough to cause this. Or that I have a tumor. Which is good news.

If only I could hear properly.
