I am wondering if anyone has symptons that are similar to what I've been experiencing. Some background - I have had silent migraines for years - 15+. I have a pain migraine about once a year. Last September I had Vestibular Neuritis and it destroyed 83% of my balance on my right side. I was bedridden for a week, then had to hold onto walls to walk around the hosue, very wobbly for months. My sepcialist did not recognize it as Vistibular Neuritis - he insisted it was a silent migraine. When the side effects continued for months he finally agreed to set up an appointment for Caloric testing. (basically involves having water (warm/cool) injected into the ear with a syringe). The results showed that it was indeed Vestibular neuritis with an 83% loss. I have had months of Vertigo Therapy which has helped tremendously. Now I can pretty well do everything I had before. Unfortunately I suffer from positional vertigo and have to constantly learn what I can and can not do regarding that issue.
Now to my big issue - Although I am not dizzy (except for the positional vertigo) I continue to have problems. The only way I can describe it is that my head is 'wonky'. There seems to be a delay when I move my head - my brain needs to catch up with my vision. I have a hard time concentrating when it's really bad. My specialist doesn't have any answers for this - not sure he even believes me. I am at a loss as to what to do. I do know that if I spend lots of time reading or concentrating on something close it gets worse. If I'm outside, hiking, walking it seems to get better. Does anyone have these same symptons and if so have you discovered anything to help?
