2008.08.14天旋地转

即便是那么轻微的移动,身边的一景一物仍是随之旋动。
像是撑着小艇在一片汪洋中载浮载沉,只是天气再坏,都不应该是这样严重的晃动不安。
数十次秒针悄悄地越过分针,分开,再重逢。从睁开双眼的那一刻开始,我的世界像是失衡的天平摇晃浮沉,把眼皮重重地合上,期望中的那个平静并未随之而来。在眼皮与眼球的狭缝里,那片黑暗仍是令人不舒服地旋转摆动。胸口仿佛负载着千斤压力,难受得让人有濒临死亡的感觉。
像是打败仗的小兵,意志力并无足够能力将我的身躯撑起来。我慌乱地举起。。。纤细的手指,即便是那样微弱的挥舞,烙印在我的脑海里的影像却像是放大了几万倍的震荡着。。。
那是从来没有过的经验,身边的物体仿佛失去了重力引响,这种令人发毛的陌生感着实令人害怕。咽喉部一股令人难过的冲击感,倾吐的却是青涩的胆内容物,苦。
那种从来没有的无力感,我的理性随着失衡。课堂上传授的理论知识在我最虚弱的时候选择将我唾弃,我在我的软弱中崩溃,软趴趴地。像个孩子般在你的怀抱中缓缓倒下。
耳镜检查后医生告诉我,我的耳水不平衡。你说睡眠不能治疗病痛。努力地把巧克力奶服下,却在准备吞服药丸的当儿,学着兔子反刍的本事将刚过食道的巧克力奶原封不动地倾吐。
晕。
一点小知识。。
頭暈或搭車時「暈浪」是都市人常見的毛病,很多人都誤以為是「耳水不平衡」所致,原來耳水不平衡的徵狀在華人並非不常見,惟名稱卻被市民廣泛「濫用」。耳鼻喉科專家指出真正的耳水不平衡會令人有「天旋地轉式」的暈眩,甚至嘔吐大作,更可影響日常生活和工作,延誤治療更可能導致一邊耳朵失聰。
耳水藏於內耳中,並隨着身體郁動而向腦部發放訊息,保持身體平衡。若左耳和右耳的水壓不平衡,即使身體在靜止不動,腦部仍會誤收到郁動的訊息,產生錯誤感覺,令人感嚴重暈眩等不適,至於為何兩邊耳水會不平衡,醫學界仍未找到原因。
耳鼻喉科專科醫生黃漢威指出,耳水不平衡的徵狀十分獨特。但很多人將頭暈籠統地當作耳水不平衡,但其實大部分頭暈原因也與耳水無關。他解釋耳水不平衡引起的暈眩屬天旋地轉式,並非普通的「頭暈暈」,患者甚至會嘔吐大作,無法正常工作及學習。若病人經常復發,聽力更可能會逐漸衰退,最終一邊耳朵甚至會失聰。
Ménière’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance. It is characterized by recurrent,spontaneus attacks of rotary vertigo ,progressive hearing loss,tinnitus and a sensation of fullness or pressure in one or both ears.Vertigo is severe, incapacitating, and unpredictable. Some patients experience vertigo for hours or days.and this combines with an increase in volume of tinnitus and fluctuating, progressive, unilateral (in one ear) or bilateral (in both ears) hearing loss, often initially in the lower frequency ranges. Hearing may improve after an attack, but often becomes progressively worse. Nausea, vomiting, and sweating sometimes accompany vertigo.
Some sufferers experience what are informally known as "drop attacks" — a sudden, severe attack of dizziness or vertigo that causes the sufferer, if not seated, to fall. Patients may also experience the feeling of being pushed or pulled (Pulsion). Some patients may find it impossible to get up for some time, until the attack passes or medication takes effect.
In addition to hearing loss, sounds can seem tinny or distorted, and patients can experience unusual sensitivity to noises (hyperacusis). Some sufferers also experience nystagmus, or uncontrollable rhythmical and jerky eye movements, usually in the horizontal plane, reflecting the essential role of non-visual balance in coordinating eye movements.
The exact cause of Ménière’s disease is not known, but it is believed to be related to endolymphatic hydrops or excess fluid in the inner ear.
Treatments aimed at lowering the pressure within the inner ear include antihistamines, anticholinergics, steroids, and diuretics. Devices that provide transtympanic micropressure pulses (such as the Meniett) are now showing some promise and is becoming more widely used as a treatment for Ménière’s. The Meniett, specifically, is proven to be a safe method for reducing vertigo frequency for a majority of users.
Surgery may be recommended if medical management does not control vertigo
