A year ago I caught a virus that made me very dizzy, nauseuas and experiencing concentration / memory problems. The virus cleared up after 2 weeks but the concentration problems, dizziness and nausea remained.
I was originally diagnosed with vestibular neuritis by my GP but my ENT doctor disagreed because:
1. I have cognitive problems and he said vestibular neuritis doesn't cause that
2. My dizziness isn't the classic vertigo (room spinning) it's more a constant feeling 'off' or slightly disorientated
3. He said vestibular neuritis dizziness is episodic, whereas mine is continuous.
The dizziness and brainfog have now been put down to my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which I've had for 7 years although I never had dizziness or brainfog as part of my symptoms until catching that virus a year ago.
What do you guys think? Can Vestibular Neuritis ever cause cognitive problems?
