Inner Ear Disorders Board Index


Hello, I'm brand new to the board and won't go into my long eight year complicated story. But recent neurologist diagnosed 'vestibular disorder'. So confident of his diagnosis that swears he'll stake his life on it. What's more I think he just might be right. Thing is I don't get dizzy spells, though I often feel as though I am about too. Very careful how I move my head. Also only one attack of vertigo in eight years. My symptoms are of internal movement, a continual wave-like spasming movement inside my head and right through my gut. All physical movement aggravates this including eating. Though worst possible position is lying down. My ears have now become very blocked up feeling, my neck is stiff & painful and I am very, very sick indeed. Any physical movement of any kind worsens the situation and I am noticeably off-balance so practically immobilized at present. We tried the 'Epley Manouvres' and they made the whole situation even worse, though for neuro seemed to confirm that his diagnosis is correct. I am really ill and very painful and won't see him again until 5th January so feeling quite desperate going into Christmas. Anybody else here with similar unusual symtoms? Anybody else from Sydney Australia? Any other Scots? Any suggestions as to what helps inner ear disorders? Eight years for a diagnosis, anybody else had it take that long?

Can TMJ cause wave-like spasms ?Hi Ninamarie. I am very interested to know how your appointment went in Jan. and if your diagnosis was confirmed as a vestibular disorder. You described your symptoms so well that I immediately joined as a member just to reply to you.For so long I have been trying to describe to people this 'funny' feeling that goes through my head and body.
I am not dizzy, not off-balance and don't get black-outs, but if I move my eyes or head quickly, or sometimes when I sit perfectly still, I get this weird feeling that comes like a wave.As if I had a glass of wine, but my legs are not wobbly yet, just that momentary spaced-out feeling. Sometimes I can have a number of 'them' in quick succession and that leaves me feeling car sick for quite some time ( never vomiting ).This all started the moment I went of Cilift ( a anti-depressant ).At first I thought it was a withdrawal symptom, but its been far to long for that now.I do have Temporomandibular joint disorder wich was quite under control while I was on the Cilift. I wonder if the absence of the Cilift and the TMJ could instigate a vestibular imbalance that could lead to this 'funny' feeling ???
