Oh, and I've had vertigo for about 10 years but that's not uncommon in women over 30, and it rarely interferes with my life. I take meclizine (generic Dramamine Less Drowsy) for it, and that keeps it at bay 99% of the time.
Sure, the joints and bones are less fluid and more creaky and when I fall I don't bounce anymore, I splat and break things, but overall I think I'm still in pretty good shape for an old broad who's been ridden hard and put up wet more times than I can count!
Ahhh, but what you didn't notice while obliviously (oblivious-ly... is that even a word??) having a great time in your 20's and early 30's was all these issues where starting to join forces and plan their attack. See, "they" wait until you are of a more "ahem" sensible age to mount their revenge, but still plotting all along.
Most 20 somethings don't listen at all to their bodies and "they" know that.
Don't believe me?
How many times have you said to yourself, "If only I had done less of "_____" when I was younger."
