What causes motion sickness and dizziness upon movement of eyes?

I had 2 surgeries to repair CSF leaks...during the 2nd surgery they found a tumor and removed my semi-circular canals......I m terribly dizzy and vestibular rehab could only do so much. Will this get even worse over time? I have terrible motion sickness and severe dizziness looking up/down with my eyes and following left/right with my eyes.

Hi dear ,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you are suffering from motion sickness and dizziness upon movement of eyes . The symptoms you mention in query occur due to wide range of reasons like migraines , head injury , certain medications , ear infection , condition like meniere's disease and due to cervical spondylosis . So i would suggest you to consult ENT specialist to get examination with the help of tests like rotatory chair test , prong test , examination with otoscope . Doctor may prescribe antiemetic drug along with anti inflammatory , antibiotics and recommend vestibular therapy .For now i would like to suggest you some home remedies drink green tea with ginger thrice a day and drink lots of fluids like juices and water . Avoid caffeine product and avoid bending forward . Doctor may refer you to ophthalmologist for eye problem.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
