hello doctor, i am 20 years old weighing 90 kgs 6 feet tall...doctor since i gained 15 kgs of wait last year i feel dizzy when i move my head..i often feel lack of energy..when i move my head i feel fully dizzy with vertigo..once doctor did my Xray of my neck side and found BPPV...beside that i feel dizzy more when i am alone or when i move my head.is there any treatment like surgery to completly remove this problem?
I was recently diagnosed with Bppv by my doctor and we performed an epley maneuver. She gave me sheets to follow for home treatment. If the dizziness is gone when I get up quickly, do I still need to perform these maneuvers, which really make the room spin?
I am having a reoccurrance of the BPPV - right ear- that I had in April. I had the Epley and Semont done by the OT/PT a few times, followed by several weeks of Brabdt Daroff at home. Symptoms inproved significantly although left with some residual slight dizziness intermitt. mostly during the day. After a recent URI and trauma to my right check (when hit in the right side of my face by an overhead steel bar on our boat) - I am having BPPV symtoms again - spinning when trying to turn or lle on Right side at night and slight dizziness and slightly off-balance during the day. I resumed the B/D exercise a week ago (3-5 reps TID starting on right side ) and it elicites 5-8 sec burst of spinning on 1st rep of each session - right side only. 2nd and 3rd reps usually cause no symptoms. Would the Epley manuever be better for me? If so what time of day should I do it and how many reps? Do I really have to sleep sitting up for 2 days after epley?
My husband has been diagnosed with epilepsy , frontal lobe seizures - abscence seizures and has been having major bouts of dizziness, vertigo and has a continual buzzing noise in his head. Medication has not helped him with these symptoms and I wondered if there is anything we can do to help him deal with these issues.
I have had Labrynthitis for 10 weeks now. The vertigo/dizziness has been improving with physical therapy but the anxiety has been very high the since the beginning. I had been taking xanax along with meclizine, but my primary and physical therapist decided that prozac would be great for me in the long run. The prozac has actually made my vertigo and dizziness much worse. I just began taking it 3 days ago, but I am questioning whether it is right for me or not. I told my Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor that I began taking prozac and he told me that could make my balance much worse. My primary and physical therapist disagree. The prozac is certainly making me more dizzy right now, but I wasn t sure if that is just a normal side effect as my body is getting used to the medication, or if the ENT is right and I should stop before possibly making my balance from the labrynthitis worse. I really don t know what the correct answer is and I am tired of suffering from this.
I am a female 58 yrs and weigh 70 kgs ,I suffered from labryntitus on 28th june 2011 and am taking serc-8 and cyclizine 50 mg . Previously for about 10 years I did suffer from vertigo , but this time it was worst and was accompanied by a humming machinery sound too.
All of it has gone but I feel tired

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.
