Way back in January, I made a thread about my dizziness symptoms following a minor car accident. The most common response was that this was most likely BPPV, and that I should see an ENT to get it sorted.
Well, I've seen one, and it's not BPPV. Both the ENT and a physiotherapist specializing in vertigo ruled it out. I attempted to return to work back in March, but had to go off sick again after a few weeks when my symptoms beame too severe for me to function.
I'm seeing a neurologist next month, but I'm starting to get desperate. No one can tell me when (or if!) this will go away, and I haven't been able to find any explanation for what exactly is causing the symptoms, beyond that it's something to do with my neck muscles. I'm now using a walking stick so I don't fall over when out in public.
Is there anyone out there who experienced these symptoms after a car crash, who *didn't* have BPPV or some other inner ear problem?
