Q. I am in excellent health, but most of the day I lie on my bed praying for death. Why? I am dizzy all day long. My brain feels like it's sloshing in a bucket of water, and every move sends waves of dizziness over me. Ten months ago, I was driving and living independently. Now I've had to give up my car and have moved from my apartment to assisted living. I've had all kinds of scans and diagnostic studies, and none has shown anything abnormal. I've seen specialists who have prescribed a ridiculously long list of drugs for high blood pressure, high blood sugar and glaucoma.

A carbon monoxide incident closed an annex at Baltimore City's Main Post Office Monday and sent two people to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Fire crews responded at about 8:30 a.m. to the one-story annex at Colvin and Lexington streets, near the main building in the 900 block of East Fayette Street. They found one person who had suffered a head injury from a fall and several other employees complaining of dizziness. A hazmat unit conducted air monitoring and determined that there were 38 parts per million of carbon monoxide inside the 35,000-square-foot building.

It is only about a 45-minute ride from Brian Roberts' house in Sarasota to Tropicana Field, but the trip represented yet another difficult hurdle in the veteran second baseman's return from a concussion. "It was a huge step for me to get in the car," said Roberts, whose voice cracked several times Friday as he talked with reporters while seated next to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. The 33-year-old was around some of his teammates for one of the first times since he last played May 16. "I don't mean that in a negative way. I mean that because I take a lot of pride in wanting to be here, doing what I'm supposed to be doing, and [Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos]

I recently weaned myself off Zoloft after taking it for six years for depression. Although I reduced the dose very slowly, I became extremely dizzy, to the point of being bedridden. Then I remembered having similar vertigo on a cruise ship. Although the Zoloft vertigo was much worse than seasickness, the acupressure wristbands worked. We are glad the wristbands helped conquer your dizziness. This side effect can be troublesome when people stop antidepressants like Effexor, Paxil or Zoloft.

New technology helps diagnose dizzinessSeverna park audiologists have a new technology to battle dizziness.It's called ENG MASTR, a computer-based instrument that helps speed diagnoses of the causes of dizziness, and eventually, its treatment.Unexplained dizzy feelings or other balance disorders afflict up to 40 percent of the population at some time in their lives, said Kimberly L. McGeady, an audiologist at the Chesapeake Hearing Center. And most of the causes of dizziness can be readily treated after they are diagnosed, she added.

Parents, headaches don't bypass the young. By the time most children -- 75 percent, by some estimates -- reach 15 years of age they've experienced all sorts of headaches. Experts say young people's headaches should not be dismissed ("You're too young to have headaches") or dramatized ("My God, a brain tumor!"). Parents need to be alert to symptoms that might accompany headaches -- pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness -- but understand that for the most part, headaches are a fact of young life.

Maybe it was nothing more than the height of his game that left Bernard King dizzy two days ago.Whatever it was that sidelined the Washington Bullets' All-Star forward during Sunday's game in Boston apparently vanished as quickly as it appeared. King was forced to leave the 119-101 loss to the Celtics shortly after the start of the third quarter and his quick exit fueled numerous rumors.King complained of dizziness and shortness of breath and had what was described as "an erratic heartbeat."

William Cook, 75, a northern Anne Arundel County retiree, felt he could no longer live "this way."He never knew when he would start reeling, everything would go topsy-turvy and he would fall to the ground. He was afraid to get behind the wheel of his car or venture out. His independence was slipping away.Once, after a sudden attack of spinning dizziness, he found himself flat on his face in a supermarket parking lot in Glen Burnie. The worst part was that "nobody even stopped to see if they could help," he said.

Let's play a game. It's called "The Dozens. " Usually it's played by elementary or middle school children, but adults can play too. It's about being clever, witty and harsh and ultimately winning — although what you win is often nothing more than fleeting satisfaction. The rules: You call me a name and then I hurl an insult back at you. Things escalate until one of us wins. It's definitely not based on evidence, but it can be fun — or end in a fistfight. Most of all, the goal is to play the game in front of a bunch of other people — in this case foundations and education policy shapers and makers.

It was a sad summer in Remington. Dizzy Issie's closed, and, for at least a moment, its fans weren't sure it was coming back. But it has, rechristened The Dizz, and it is totally spruced up. Regulars will take note of the new windows in the front bar and a thorough cleansing, painting and renovation of the downstairs dining room, which mostly just feels more orderly. Some of the more fundamental improvements are either behind the scenes (new kitchen equipment, new heating and air-conditioning equipment)

The Orioles' shortstop carousel took another spin yesterday, with Alex Cintron going on the disabled list and Freddie Bynum returning to the team a week after being designated for assignment. Where it stops, no one knows. The club remains in the market for a shortstop and has engaged in talks with the Washington Nationals regarding Felipe Lopez. The Orioles have also been scouting the Chicago White Sox's Juan Uribe. Lopez and Uribe play second base, but both have extensive experience at shortstop.

For the past 2 1/2 years, we've tried to help Dizzy forget his past. The 50-pound, black-and-tan mutt survived Hurricane Katrina's devastation of the Gulf Coast in 2005 and was brought to Baltimore by the Maryland SPCA. He has mainly become a fit and friendly pooch since landing in our living room as a foster dog and later being adopted by us, but the city's noises and crowds still seem to gnaw at his fragile psyche. We decided he needed a vacation. One late April weekend, my husband, Doug, and I packed up and headed to the small and historic resort town of Lewes, Del., which is about five miles north of Rehoboth Beach and about 15 miles north of Ocean City.

If the NFL's job-search merry-go-round got any more counterintuitive, the league might have to expand the Rooney Rule to include the top coaching talent from other sports. Let's see. The latest strange revelation came yesterday, when unnamed sources, citing executive privilege, leaked to unspecified news outlets that Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator Mike Smith would soon be announced as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons. The only thing missing was a player to be incarcerated later.

Maybe it's the streets that go in circles. It took me multiple trips to Annapolis to figure out State Circle and its adjacent little sibling, Church Circle. 'Round and 'round she goes, I used to think as I made my second or fifth pass around one of them, where she'll stop, nobody knows. Funny, that thought has been going through my head as I've followed the very special session that the General Assembly has been having lo these three weeks now. This week, the House has been churning over slots.

Dear Dr. Solomon: My hands always seem to be chapped when the weather gets cold. I've tried washing them more often so that they wouldn't be so dry, but this hasn't helped. Do you have any advice? -- Lee, TowsonDear Lee: My first bit of advice would be to stop washing your hands so often. What you are doing by washing so often is removing the natural oils, and this will only make your skin more dry. The idea is to replace the natural oils, and this can be accomplished by using petroleum jelly or a moisturizing cream.

Q: Although I am only 29, the hearing in my right ear has been getting slowly worse over the past two years. This problem is particularly worrisome because my father became deaf in both ears when he was in his late 50s.A: My advice is that you have your hearing tested, because it sounds like your concern is reasonable and that you are in the early stages of a hearing disorder that runs in families. Although several diseases that cause hearing problems are familial, the most common is otosclerosis, estimated to affect one out of every 200 people, and is especially prevalent among Caucasians and women.

Today's column is about an important subject that is not really on everyone's mind: the never-ending choices in women's underwear. There was a time when, if I needed underwear, I only needed about 30 seconds to shop for it. It was hanging in a plastic three-pack on a rack in the back of the women's department. My choice was limited to: size. That's because "color" was the ever-unflattering brilliant white. This type of underwear had an elastic waistband that, as its name indicates, came up to the waist, and two similarly, boringly appointed leg holes.
