Thanks for responding! I was beginning to think no one would! I guess there is an awful lot to read on these boards!

BPV is benign positional vertigo....basically severe dizziness that usually is caused by taking an antibiotic and it affects the balance in your inner ear..the neurologist that "fixed" this problem didn't seem concerned about the short, severe head pain that I had with it and I can't seem to find anything on the internet about head pain going with it.

After my family doctor (after two visits) told me to go home and take ibuprofen because I had arthritis (neck and arm pain & was totally body numbness), I went ahead and made an appointment on my own with a orthopedic neck specialist...4 weeks of worse...he sent me to the neurosurgeon.

Almost 3 months out...still with numbness and some pretty bad headaches and now some pain on the left side (none pre-op), the neurosurgeon sent me to a neurologist (not the one I had originally seen for the BPV)

The "new" neurologist ordered a lumbar mri--even though I said I only had moderate back pain and he ordered an EMG (right side-where most of my numbness is now).. I go back in two weeks for the results.

I guess I'd better make a list of questions....once I'm in there, I usually always forget...

Thanks so much for your help
