    Yes, I was stricken with neuropathy in my feet the same time I contracted the vertigo, which was almost a year ago. I have told all my doctors this and they don’t seem to have an answer. Do you have any issues with your neck?

      I have many problems .. I’m learning about the other aspects of vestibular disorder.. no pain in neck but trying to get why this happened after my bypass is maddening ... Drs don’t say anything when I mention eighth cranial nerve damage. But in reading I see it all stems from damage to it. How is your neck hurting?  Is your neuropathy from diabetes?   I feel like eyes ears don’t work together , only had vitamin deficiencies B-1& B-12 that bought on neuropathy   Do u walk like your drunk ? I do & rely on walls or things to get places

      That’s interesting about your bypass. I had a stent implanted in my left subclavian artery in December 2016. The vertigo hit me in May of 2017 and has never left. I think my PCP wants to do some tests on my heart, since my cardiologist for some reason is not interested in my vertigo issues. I do not have diabetes. I think the numbness and tingling is due to the herniated disks and stenosis in my cervical spine.

    I have nerve damage in my ears, and internal vertigo. i feel movement inside me. i also feel like im walking on a boat. A few months into my vestibular nightmare I developed numbness and tingling in my feet and hands. Also have crawling and burning sensations in legs and twitching all over my body. I also have weakness in my right leg, and constant head pressure. I also have an internal vibrating sensation. Can these symptoms be vestibular? i have done all the tests, and mri of brain, neck spine.

      same exact symptoms. No MRI though. Just blood work. Doctor say its bad ear/sinus infection but I have this feeling for over a month.

      It feels like a cinderblock is in my head when i lean foward.

      idk whats going, but me checking my symptoms every 5 minutes is probably not good for my body.

      But 1 month of feeling like this can do that to anybody

      for me it has been more than one month. Do you also have pressure in your head, blurry vision and a pulsing feeling in your head? Even my tongue tingles! Doctors are confused. they cannot find whats wrong with me. except for an otoneurologist who found the damage in my ears.

      *the best description is it feels like a vacuum is sucking the top of my head. so much pressure and making me lightheaded.

      like if someone is smoking marijuana and the blood is constricting to the head so its so tight. And no blurry vision, but sometimes my eyes lose their bearing after i wake up and i have to focus to get them good again.

      All this took place after flu-like symptoms. So an ear/sinus infection is a good guess but what else could it possibly be, realistically? i feel so fatigued and drunk, almost like i have low blood sugar
