Have been suffering from vertigo for a week. Primary care did not want to see me; said I should call the neurosurgeon who had inserted the device into my brain to take care of hydrocephalis. Had a visit with the PA for the neurosurgeon, who said there was no sign of contamination or need for a revision–also said the acoustic neuroma had shrunk. However, she attributed my vertigo to a UTI. When I contacted my primary care she reluctantly gave me macrobid for the UTI. Has anyone heard of a UTI causing vertigo?
