He's been suffering from tinitus (ringing in the ears) and vertigo on and off for months now, and has been on tablets. Well, he's not been able to get up for the past 2 days it's been so bad, and he was sick with it this morning. Mum got the doctor out, and he's told him to get to the hospital this afternoon! My mum's obviously gone with him, but I'm stuck at work. There's not a lot I could do if I was there anyway, but I still feel awful for being at work. My mum's really not good in situations like this, she gets herself worked up and worries too much so i would have liked to have been there for her as well. And I've just made the mistake of looking up causes of vertigo on NHS direct. It says that on rare occasions, and if coupled with tinitus, it could be a brain tumour! Why did I look that up? I'm so much more worried now!!!
