I was dusting the cobwebs off my World of Warcraft characters last night when I got a sudden twinge of dizziness even though I was sitting down. I got another three or four over the course of the next hour, accompanied by a general sense that something wasn't right. when I finally finished and stood up, I realised that my sense of balance had completely gone on my left-hand side. I think it was still working on the right, but it was very hard to tell. I didn't feel dizzy, I just didn't feel at all assured when I was walking: my feet didn't feel right on the ground and I couldn't move at normal speed with any fluency.

I still felt that way when I went to bed, and I did when I woke up at 12:30am. However, when I woke up again at 4:00am, it had gone.

Earlier that day I'd had a bunged-up feeling in my left ear, and I'm hoping it was that which somehow temporarily disrupted my balance. On the other hand, I could just be about to have a stroke.

Can't say I think much of this getting older mularkey...
