I wobble and sometimes stumble when I walk. Weve investigated

Resolved Question:

I wobble and sometimes stumble when I walk. We've investigated neurological causes and have come up with zero answers. Could this result from disfunction of the eyes and inner ear not working in synch?

Dr.Tharun :

hi

Dr.Tharun :

Probably you have done all scans to rule out any tumors or mass in the brain? What medications you have tried ?What was the diagnosis the doctors have been giving you? Any ear infection?

Customer:

Hi, Doctor

Customer:

Have had all the scans. Have done 14 different meds. No diagnosis. No ear infections since a small child...

Customer:

Lots of sinus problems thru my life. Motion sickness as a child.

Customer:

My legs have lots of strength. It seems that I can't control them.

Customer:

The more tired I become as I walk the more the problem is apparent.

Dr.Tharun :

Is it present all the time or sometimes only ?

Dr.Tharun :

does it happen when you get up or move your head ?

Customer:

At the outset it was more of a problem mid morning, mid afternoon and late in the evening. It is now virtually all the time.

Customer:

I can sit and drive or work at my computer, watch t v, etc with no symptoms...when I move the symptoms can range from slight to severe

Dr.Tharun :

have any body diagnosed you with benign positional vertigo?

Customer:

No one has mentioned that. However, I only rarely have what I know to be vertigo.

Customer:

Otherwise, no spinning or dizzyness

Customer:

Sometimes when I sit "suddenly" things seem to be moving vertically for short periods

Dr.Tharun :

Is there any ringing in the ears?

Customer:

No "rining" but an almost electronic sizzle...slight...but all the time

Dr.Tharun :

In that case meniere's disease should be considered as a diagnosis which can present like this.

Customer:

That was mentioned early on but was ruled out thru some tests.

Customer:

I fear I've asked you for a "magical revelation" simply out of hope that "someone" would think of something that the previous docs hadn't considered.

Dr.Tharun :

If it is ruled out then , benign positional vertigo should be considered and treated like wise usually with combination of medications and special exercises.(head exercises)

Customer:

I'll explore that with the docs I'm working with at this time.

Customer:

Thank you for considering this problem.
