First, the background. I am 46 years old and think I am perimenopausal because I am ovulating much less often and my periods, although still fairly regular, have suddenly become much heavier. However, long before this happened, I started having problems with truly awful ovulation pain for a couple of days each month; I have had a couple of ovarian cysts bu...

Thanks for your reply! Thing is though, lactose-free milk causes exactly the same symptoms, so surely there must be something else going on here?

One year later, the dose was increa...

Good morning! Two years ago, I had a severe bout of vertigo which declined gradually over 2-3 weeks, and which the doctors diagnosed as vestibular neuritis. At the time, they also gave me a hearing test and diagnosed the early stages of presbyacusis . I had already been prone to bouts of vertigo which would start without warning; they would go away after h...

At the time, they also gave me a hearing test and diagnosed the early stages of presbyacusis (age-related high-frequency hearing loss). I had already been prone to bouts of vertigo which would start wit...
