Well I am truly down in the dumps so i am going to burden you all with it...and maybe someone knows of someone with similar difficulties.
I suffered from permanent deafness in my left ear a few years back when a virus damaged my inner ear. At that time I had a couple of meniers attacks but they subsided and were short lived and manageable. Now sods law being strictly applied in my life in general I have developed an infection in my right ear (I already use an hearing aid in that ear). Now you may be thinking why the hell is this relevant to photography, after all you use your eyes not your lugs. Thats what I thought but this latest bout has left me practically deaf and when I look through the view finder my head spins and I get the irresistible urge to vomit all over my equipment. The doc has given me some pills for the vomiting thing but the giddiness prevails. I see an ENT consultant later this week so I dare say I will get more information then. Its a pain though. I will have to start using live view and a tripod more often if nothing can be done.
If anyone has any suggestions of how I might tackle using the camera at this stage I will be grateful.
