Sep 3, 2011 · Constant dizziness/imbalance in Brain & Nervous System

I’m a 59 year old female and have had the same issues since March 2011. Started with sinus infection. I’ve had no-spinning, but dizzy and balance. CT Scan, heart, angiogram, EKG, EEG all good. Ear,Nose & Throat (ENT) Specialist diagnosed me with Vestibular Optic Reflex. My eyes feel like they are trying to cross, nausea, blur vision and sounds drive me crazy. Life changing for me. I’ve seen every doc imagineable…can’t find a cure. I’m working with Physical Therapist for the balance which is better. The other, no. My neurologist agreed with the ENT diagnosis. I’m just not so sure. My ears have ringing sensation, my eyes feel like they are trying to focus, but can’t. The PT and ENT continue to reassure me that the inner ear hairs are getting a wrong signal – telling my brain that I’m moving, when I’m not, which cause my eyes to google around too. It’s just been horrible, so I can empathize with you. Recommended Zofran for nausea. Meccalizine for motion. 2mg Xanax for nervousness. I even had a tooth extracted that I thought could be causing the problem with the 8th Cranial Nerve….nope. I sure hope we find answers. Good luck to you, I hope you learn something new to help you.

Sep 3, 2011 · Vestibular Optic Reflex - I have been dizzy since March 2011. Sinus in Just Want to Talk

Vestibular Optic Reflex – I have been dizzy since March 2011. Sinus infection with rounds of antibotics turned into balance problem for me. Ear, Nose, & Throat (ENT) recommended Physical Therapy for balance issues and Gaze exercises, because my eyes feel crossed or my vision is blurry. The balance, with PT, has improved – stopped bumping into things, I wake up with this dizzy, nausea and go to bed dizzy with nausea. I’ve had CT Scan, Heart, Angiogram, EEG, EKG and nothing is showing up major, but it’s been life changing for me. I have difficult with driving and/or riding in a car. My nervous system is out of whack. Diagnosis from ENT – Vestibular Optic Relfex. I’m looking for answers. I also have Fibromuscular Dysplacia which means my arteries look like a sting of pearl beads. I’ve had several strokes and two aneurysms, which I had stent and coil placement procedures in 2000 and 20001. HELP!!! HELP!!!! I would like to find out if there is anything out there that can help me with this issue. Meds for nausea, meds for sleep, meds for nerves……tired of bandaid situation and no fix. Can Mayo help me?
