So early last night I was doing research for a project and I guess I had never wiki-ed lupus before (oddly enough). And not that I’m suggesting that Wikipedia is the end all, be all of information, but…

Well, well, well.

I was looking at the symptoms they listed for lupus and…


Autoimmune inner ear disease (AIED).

What the heck is that, you ask? That’s what I wondered too…



Okay, I guess that’s not much clearer.

Well, it’s the very thing that I was told caused my episode of vertigo nearly two years ago.

Now the pieces are starting to fit together.

Apparently, AIED is very, very rare, as in an incidence rate of less than 1%.

But nothing about this experience has been typical. Then again, it never is.

I know I’ve been obsessed with this, but I knew that it was related somehow.

So, what to do with this information? I guess it’s mine for posterities sake!

I, the ever-defiant detective, solves the mystery… again!

  1. I was diagnosed recently with labyrinthitis, I have also been diagnosed with lupus, fibromyalgia, and 1/2 dozen other things. Can't find if these last ones are related somehow. If you know, I'd love the answers. Oh, tinitus is a blast too! Anyone with info can mail me at the address given : now my family calls me Dizzy T.
    Good luck to all out there!
