Doctor :  
Are you with me?
User :   yes
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
Rather than lyme's disease
Doctor :  
I am more in favor
Doctor :  
of an intracranial lesion
Doctor :  
or just a functional vestibular issue
User :   what really is that ? A muscle disorder?
Doctor :   No

Doctor :  
It is a part in the inner ear
Doctor :  
which controls postural variations
Doctor :  
if the blood supply to that area is impaired
Doctor :  
it results in such blackouts
Doctor :  
and the other one , intracranial lesion, you are aware I guess
User :   Is there a special test done to detect this?(vestibular issue)
Doctor :   a CT scan

Doctor :  
and a clinical examination is fine enough
