Went to the doctor today and asked if it was possible that I had vestibular neuritis instead of the BPPV that the ENT diagnosed me with, as my symptoms didnt match exactly. ( earlier post help nausea, dizziness for 3 months). My GP told me that Bppv, Vestibular Neuritis, and Lab are all the same thing and that they are all just names for a problem with the inner ear that they cant diagnose. I asked him about sending me for Calorics and he said that test is unreliable and a waste of time. he also said you can have BPPV and not respond the hal pike manouver and the emply manouver. Is this true is there no test that will truely work or should I find a new doctor. I left my last GP as he would not send me for any testing and just gave me a bottle of betahistine. Now this GP says because I had a clear MRI come back that there is nothing sinister and that I will just have to live with it. Refuses to send me to any other specialist or testing.
