I would like to thank you for posting this , my son recently joined the military and was sent to basic training, he started having problems with dizziness and was sent to the medical wing, they have been doing nothing but running tests and giving him the run around, they have gone from the problem being a tumor in his inner ear to an infection to water in the ear and now to minear disease which tells us nothing and since this is his first time away from home , he is naturally scared, so I am trying to find out what this is , since they dont feel the need to tell him and will not discuss it with me, ( go figure this is my child and our government doesnt feel the need to tell me about his health, even though they will not do anything since they claim that it started before he entered basic training, they just need to rule out the chance that it is not being caused by them before they will send him home so that I can take him to a doctor here to find out what to do to help him) so I guess what I am asking is If there is anyone out there who has any information on this subject, can you please send it to me @ I thank you in advance for any help that you can give me..... A concerned mother.
