My husband is a very healthy 73 year old who works out. Over the last year and a half he has developed progressive light headedness and has fallen several times. He has been evaluated by ENT- all negative. He has seen vascular neurology at Emory and his Brain MRI, MRA, angiogram, CT angiogram and all blood work is normal. He had an episode where he could not move his hands, could not walk and fell which lasted about 20 seconds. He has episodes of confusion lasting several seconds. His neurologist did not think this was a TIA but felt it was due to reduced blood flow in vertebral arteries- however all scans do not prove this to be a problem. His gait has changed and he now walks with a wide gait He had cervical surgery about 1 year ago with rod placement but this did not help. Wonder if anyone can help and wonder if an appointment at the Mayo clinic would be helpful. We are desperate as this has really affected his quality of life. I know that light headedness is not an uncommon problem in the aging population but I feel we are missing something here. Thank you.
