The last few days here in midwest have had extreme heat (85+) and humidity, after we had pleasant weather in prior days (low 70F).  I experienced extreme dizziness (almost blacked out).  Went to ER for vital check.  Doctor verbally told me viral attack on ear fluid.  No details of what type of virus.  Nurse said difficult to identify.  Sent home with meclizine and diazepam.

Reading on web, these medications are not dementia friendly.
