Dizziness

For the last 6 weeks or so, I have been suffering from severe headaches, dizziness and just feeling really woozy at times. I kind of attributed it to my diet because that is the biggest change that I have made. I had also been seeing on the boards that other Kimkins dieters had been experiencing the same thing. So I thought, OK, I just need to add more fat back into my diet and eat more and I will be ok. Well, I did that but it never really went away. It actually seemed to be getting worse. When I went to New Smyrna on Monday for the mystery Shop, my friend Chantelle drove. During that drive, I got dizzy three times. I had not gotten dizzy while I was driving, so I thought this is weird. Well, I struggled with it for a couple more days all the while the headache was getting worse. It made me think that I had some of these symptoms before when I had sinus infections. Well, to make a long story short, I went to a Quick Care Clinic on Thursday morning and guess what? I do have a sinus infection! It's not my diet, woo hoo!! I started taking anitbiotics and I am already feeling better. I slept 10 1/2 hours last night and it was awesome. Moral of the story. Listen to your body and don't make conclusion. See a Doctor, right away if you are experiencing any issue with your health. I don't have insurance other than AmeriPlan, so I didn't want to spend the money. I actually made it worse by dragging it out for as long as I did and I could have been better weeks ago if I just listened to my body..

If the drugs don't start working right away don't worry that it is not a sinus infection after all. I had some weird kind one time and I ended up going to 6 different doctors, yes 6! And it was because they had been a-either prescribing the wrong meds or b-they were giving it to me for 7 days when for sinus infections it should be at least 14 days or something. It was awful! And ewwww
