Dear Well Wishers,
It has been an amazing year. There were only a few flaws but that won’t bring me down
Can’t believe this year has passed so quickly. I know we are going to have so many new advancements and wonders deep in the future!!
Will like to share an incident of 2018 end , where I felt adversities have made me value my family and friends all the more…
It started when I was in my official visit to China, I woke up with uneasy sensation in my head that was getting worse by the minute. Felt weak, dizzy and as though felt that I was not getting proper food.
Tried to go at my job, but the woozy feeling of my head kept worsening that didn’t allow me to walk or drive and finally I planned to pack my luggage and go to the airport – but it was too early call as departure was at midnight, nine hours more to go but finally decided it’s better to proceed as not able to freeze any other plan
The moment I arrived at the airport “That’s when my world went completely out of control,” ” I found everything a blur. I felt as though I was on a roller coaster, continuously vomiting and being thrown off my seat. My head weighed a tonne and I could not balance it or coordinate my arms to reach for any support “
I wanted to scream for help but only a gurgle escaped my mouth. I had no clue what was happening and began to wonder if I was going to die.”
It was my luck at that moment, Priya called on my cell which was answered by supporting airport staff and they told her that we are proceeding to the airport hospital, she managed call and request help from her local office team and informed Bipan whom I was associated since I started my professional career as he is always concern about my family
In Hospital duty doctor administered medication and I slept “When I woke up after few hours, things were better and I felt as though I had survived a cyclone.”
I took a deep breath when I saw my colleague and requested, to take back along with him as it was still one hour to board a flight
He carried me back on my request, in spite doctor not recommended and I was also too weak to stand ” but excited that soon I will see my children sitting next to me along with my parents and wife
Back home, on the recommendation of my friend’s we consulted a doctor who seemed to have answers to almost all my questions. and he declared its ‘VERTIGO’ which means, “a feeling of motion when one is stationary”, it is a condition in which the external world seems to revolve around the individual or where the individual experiences a feeling of revolving in space,” says the doctor.
Days Later, my friend referred me to Dr Vishal at Aster Medical Center – International City , who specialised in Vertigo where he conducted two tests i.e.
1, VNG ( Video Nystagmography ) for eyes and brain equation
2.VEMP ( Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials ) for brain muscle
Dr Vishal further supported me with medicines to overcome the current issues and informed, Vertigo is a symptom, not a diagnosis. These symptoms are due to damage or dysfunction of the labyrinth in the inner ear (responsible for balance and hearing), vestibular nerve, or that part of the brain responsible for receiving information from the inner ear. It is often associated with nausea and vomiting, as well as difficulty in standing and walking.
Further explained by a video of BMW CEO, who faints on stage during the sudden attack of vertigo
Keywords by Doctor “Be aware of your condition. Stay on a salt-free diet and do adaptive exercises regularly”
“Dealing with vertigo isn’t easy but once you know that it’s there you need to learn to take control of it instead of it taking control of your life,”
Today, I committed myself for daily morning exercise and recovering fast!!
Big Thank to Dr Vishal, my relatives, friends, and colleagues who visited and kept in touch with me and to all those who have silently prayed for me. You will always be in my prayers.
I have a wonderful family means that GOD has given you a sign that you really matter and I don’t want to give that all up
Wish you a lovely life and a Happy New Year 2019!!
Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
Luv your Life
