Head Impulse Test

Posted , 6 users are following.

I recently had an appointment with a neurologist. He performed several tests one i believe to be a head impulse test. I started feeling dizzy, by the time I got home I was suffering with dizzy/vertigo and headache, which ive had for about a week. Can the head impulse test cause this or is it or is it coincidental?

    What did the exercise consist of, was it the Epley Manouvre ? As others have stated, it would help if you could specify why you were being treated.

    I have read quite a few forums on here about that, apparantly i believe that there are exercises that you can do with your head that make you so dizzy but eventually they do work
