So for the second time this year I was back at the hospital this week. For months now I’ve been having brief periods of vertigo. Last week it became so bad it I was unable to be upright for a whole day.

After a visit to my doctor he had a suspicion that is was Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

I was sent to the hospital to rule out all the scary stuff and see if they could figure it out.

Many nauseating tests later, the doctors concluded that it was indeed BPPV.

Luckily it wasn’t anything dangerous, and it should be resolved in a couple of weeks.

But this whole incident reminded me again how happy I am to pay my taxes and have a well functioning health system.
