So, after 15 years of symptoms, I finally got diagnosed with vestibular migraines. But he also sent me in for VNG and VEMPS testing, because I flunked one of the vestibular tests in his office.
Both of my ears are affected, but my left ear is worse. (Worse pain, worse tinnitus, etc...) I also have left sided pain in my head and entire body during my episodes.
Anyway, when they gave me the vemps test in my left ear, I didn't notice anything unusual. But when the did the VEMPS in my right year, I felt muscle twitching througout my entire body. I know they are measuring myogenic (muscle) potentials in the neck so I am trying to figure out what this means as far as interpreting the results.
The audiologist who did the test said he should be getting the results to the doctor tomorrow, but I always get curious and impatient waiting for test results to come back.
I also had a hearing test (mild hearing loss in high frequencies) and a VNG. During the VNG, I got dizzy/floaty feeling when they leaned me back on the left side (my bad side) and during the calorics test, I got super dizzy on the right side with the cold water, but not as dizzy with the left side. Not so much spinning, but more like rocking back and forth.
Just curious if any of you had the same experience? Trying to figure out if I have Meniere's in addition to MAV.
