How to cure delayed recognition in the movement of brain?

My son has a problem. He gets ill because he has a delayed recognition of movement by the brain. He describes his illness as moving his head to thr left or right and the brain senses this movement in a delayed way. This is causing him to a bit like motion sikness but it is not motion sickness but a very real delayed recognition of movement.

Neurologist 's  Response

There are several things that come to mind that could fit his description of symptoms. One is positional vertigo which is a sense of unusual bodily movement that can come with symptoms of nausea (perhaps even vomiting if persistent).

The other is something referred to perceptual POSTURAL POSITIONAL DIZZINESS (PPPD) and in this disorder a person is always feeling a little off kilter. Either a ENT specialist interested in vertiginous disorders or neuro-otologist would be best to evaluate his symptoms for the best diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have read your query and here is my advice.

In my opinion, an evaluation by a Neurologist and an MRI of brain including its junction with spinal cord is necessary.

These steps are necessary to evaluate correctly any problems such as Chiari malformation, that may cause issues with the equilibrium apparatus and the involved neural structures.

Discuss with the Neurologist for these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
