Well, it seems I do NOT have milk fever. The treatment has not resolved the symptoms. I most likely have labyrinthitis that was triggered by an upper respiratory infection I had 2 weeks ago. I can try an antihistamine, like Claritin safely with breastfeeding, but I should keep an eye on baby, and my milk supply. Unfortunately, this may be an end to breastfeeding my baby boy. I'd try to suffer through it, but it could take up to 3 months before I recover on the meds and I could possibly NOT recover if I don't treat it. Also, because of the dizziness, I should not drive. We'll see.
