I wonder if any of you have gone thru this. I saw the ENT about 2 months ago and did the VNG test, well I got thru most of the test and when it got to the end where they put the air into each ear, my dizziness got so bad they stopped the test and I had only done one ear, well tried to do that ear. So after this he started me on VRT, which I've been doing for about 3 weeks. Well I went to see the ENT today and I wanted to know exactly what the diagnoses was, and he started going thru my chart and said well, you couldn't finish the VNG so we can't tell if it the inner ear, but since your having headache with dizziness I want to start you on topamax, and if it works then we will no its vestibular migraine. If not then I suppose he'll try another med if I can't take the topamax. So I basically left there with no real reason why the dizzy rocking/swaying crap is happening. I asked him about the other symptoms of lightheadness, headaches, falling and leaning sensations, anxiety, feeling like i"m walking on marshmello's, floor moving and bouncing, floating feeling, feeling like i'm on a boat when I'm sitting, standing, walking, laying down, feel like i'm being pushed forward when i'm walking, if all this was normal for vestibular, he said yes.
So my question remains, what do I have and what is causing it? I'm curious about this VNG test, are suppose to have dizziness when they do it, if so. then what does that tell them, if your not dizzy what does that tell them.
I'm starting to think all this dizzy crap, is exactly that, they have no idea, so they try all this medication and the VRT in the hopes that something gets better. How in the heck are you suppose to find out what this is. If anyone can explain, please do. I am so mad right now, because he is treating me but has no reason for what is happening. I understand I couldn't finish the test, but I would think if I got dizzy within 30 seconds then that must tell them something.
Please if anyone can help I would be so grateful.
