Smoked one pack a day for 30 years. haven't touched a cigarette since 4-17-09 and nearly no cravings at all! I owe that to actually "Wanting" to quit a few months before the heart attack. The bed time from the heart attack sealed the deal :-)

Hi Michael, this is doofste, my name is Jacqui. I am impressed with your answer, it is at least something that make sense to me. Other symptoms are hearing my heartbeat in my ear, sometimes I have problems with eye focus, it is as if the objects move up and down, are these also typical symptoms of of Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence? I don't know what this means, I am going to look that up where ever I can, thank you for at least putting me on a track to investigate. I have not consulted a lyrengologist.
Have a lovely day.
OK Michael; now you're gonna make me google SCDS! I learn everyday. I like your comments on Rebecca's and Ed's posts-she does a good job and you have some very good responses. I hope this scds is not vascular related on top of your other concerns.In another past age we'd both be dead...early.My Mom, who was a nurse saw heart patients all the time and little could be done except good old nitro.Cancers were referred to as "consumption"....consuming the body wherever it appeared to break thru, not necessarily the point of origin. Good points. Joan.
