I saw Indigo Children mentioned in this thread somewhere...never gave it much thought until yesterday when I mentioned the term to my teenager who did some reserch...

I dunno if there's anything to it or not, kinda like a horoscope...but everything fits me. Perfectly. She also found a reference to Crystal Childen. That fits her perfectly...But, like I said, I don't put too much stock into stuff like that. Fun and interesting, but...that's about it.

I've seen them. Nothing to be done. Just has to pass :-) Didn't know if anybody else with all the auditory testing ended up with the same problems?

Yep. Docs ended up calling it sub-clinical Meniere's. Or, in other words, Meniere's that isn't Meniere's. Vertigo sensitivity increased as I got older where even a carousel can make me vomit. The docs suggested taking meclazine (ingredient in dramamine)to help control it. It works but check with your doctors first, yadda yadda yadda.

I have been thinking mine was Meniere's but doesn't exactly fit with Meniere's...Good information! Thanks a ton!!! I took Antivert at one point, bleh. I'll go back to the doc when I have insurance and check on meclazine. Again, thanks!!!! :-)

Yep, that was pretty much what my ENT said. He was a good doctor. Actually saw me as a human. He even went so far as to run a caloric stimulation test on me, which came back normal. Was part of what was puzzling him. I get an intense amount of pressure behind my right ear and a kind of wind tunnel sound when I get the vertigo. He couldn't figure out the cause.

I'm back after more than a year of absence. Still getting caught up. But it seems there are some pretenders who have taken up residence here and have really managed to get things off track at times with a lot of meaningless jabber.

I had hearing issues as a small child that was taken care of with a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. I don't believe the auditory testing had anything to do with the mgm program but was rather a school wide policy with school wide testing.
I do however, have questions about the scoliosis issue, was anyone else told that they had a slightly sideways s in their spine?

 Quoting: Lisafishes 28828277


I was pulled out of class to do "scoliosis" exercises with one other girl, for 2 years. Twice a week, we were given a list of exercises to do, left alone in a room with some mats to do the exercises. That's all that happened, as I remember it. We didn't mind, cause we got to leave class for an hour or so.

My daughter - same thing. Our family doctor told me the school was full of it - no sign of scoliosis. ?

Neither of us wound up with any health issues from it, though. No back problems whatsoever. What the heck was this "scoliosis" thing all about?

Um, more along the lines of: "8 year old with 25lbs of paper in their backpack x 8 hours of school = compression and vertebral subluxation."

we were being tested to discover what "intellect" is and how it develops in children more-so than anything else (if it was even that.)

The way things have been going with the teachers saying "just teach yourself" and putting on a movie... makes it hard to believe that the gate classes would be much different. Sure, you'd get IQ tests in addition to the standardized tests, but valuable life skills? Training? Ha!

When I was in school I don't remember such heavy backpacks. That was in the 70's. But now for my kids (I started late) ...

Yeah they have had huge heavy backpacks even in elementary school.


And no they aren't told "teach yourself", that is just a poor school district I guess. But they are given too much work that seems beside the point, like social studies assignments that require extensive and detailed coloring and drawing. That's in sixth grade, where the academics are starting to get intense, but still they are coloring! It isn't art class!
