Posted on Wed, 10 Jun 2015 in General Health
Question: Hello Dr,
For a week I am feeling like i am moving slow while driving (not every time). I become normal if I stop my car.. it happens like old video games where all the background moves.. Its weird feeling,, checked my vision and all normal... It happen even if i am at passenger seat..

Let me explain the complete situation. I did a LASIK an year ago. This episode started after couple of months from there... This happens only at driving, I feel like I am either moving slow or not moving at all, where as all the object move towards me... Previously it happend once in a while(once in three months). If I stop my car I will become normal. And i never took that as an issue..last week I had a mild head ache due to stress(still I have it-very mild), At the same time I got the slow moving feel while driving then I started reading about this slow moving episode in some forum and started getting every time I drive(just this week)..I checked my vision and it was good I went to my primary physician she said there is an inflamation in my right ears and gave medication for it... I started that today.. All my blood works are good... I feel like passing out but never did. My BP wa 127/85 ...

Brief Answer:
cerebellar lesion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite suggestive of a possible viral cerebellar lesion.
in this the virus affects the cerebellar area.
The cerebellar areas that are primarily the seat of balance become abnormal.
Your antibiotics should help you.
I would however also suggest an Mri of the brain just to be safe.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal

Detailed Answer:
Hi
thanks for your response. The
the ear infection may be related.
It may be a source if infection.
so it should be treated.
And cerebellar lesions can become serious.
It is better to take it seriously.
and as I suggested before , meet a neurologist and get a mri.

The craniocervical junction is unremarkable. The corpus callosum is unremarkable.

There is no evidence of stroke or demyelinating process. There is no intracranial mass identified.

is cerebellar lesion can be seen in MRI?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Saumya Mittal 3 hours later
Brief Answer:
read the report

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the response.
I have read your report.
Structural Cerebellar lesion is seen on mri.
Cerebellitis due to viral infection may sometimes not be seen on mri.
This in a way adds to the fact that it may be viral infection of the cerebellum.
I would have liked to examine you.
Since thats obviously not possible, I asked you to visit a neurologist also who could examine you.
What were their comments on examination?
Please do let me know so we can help you further.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal
