Vertigo dizziness and t

Posted , 6 users are following.


I am 27 years old. I have been suffering from severe dizziness and disturbance in balance for about 6 months. I did not experience an injury to the head or any other organ.

I was at 3 ert doctors - sent me for a hearing test (standard), CT head and ear cuts (normal) and an ENG test I performed today:

The results of the ENG test:

There is RT beating spontaneous nystagmus rocorded in darkness.

Significant directional changing nystagmus was recorded with positional test.

Oculometric tests are normal.

Bithermal caloric test is within the normal limits.

It is important for me to note that it is difficult for me to say if the dizziness is in a certain direction, apart from ringing in both ears, I also have throbbing/pulsating tinnitus in my right ear.

Another thing is that I have almost no nausea from the dizziness.

I do not take any special drugs and my blood tests are completely normal (including b12).

I'm very desperate, it's hard for me to get out of the house. Im really limited in the few thinga i can do. The anxiety is awful and thw depression that comes along. Im isolated to my room.

This vertigo is 24/7 , and most of the time there is ringing in both ears.

Any help/seggestions guys..

Thanx a million smile

P.s.- sry for my bad english.

    Sorry to hear you are suffering. I have had vertigo everyday for a month too but mine is getting better. I get ringing in the ears mainly at night when I lie down. I have an incredibly stiff neck and bad posture and been getting specialist physio treatment for my neck which is helping. If you walk up straight without looking down then it will help too.

    ?I think you should try some VRT (vestibular rehabilitation therapy).  There's a lot of different exercises online at that might be able to help you.  Did your doctors recommend that at all?  They should have.  You wrote "There is RT beating spontaneous nystagmus recorded in darkness".  The vestibular exercises might help lessen that nystagmus.  I wish you the best.
