Customer Question
My wife has been suffering...
My wife has been suffering vertigo for many months, she has been to several specialist and it is getting worse. MRIs, MRAs, Blood work, heart echo, 48 hour heart monitor, inner ear testing, several medications, did everything we have been told to do...She was treated for benign positional vertigo, had tubes placed in both ears, and had the steroid perfusion procedure in Dec. This last procedure has made her worse...I'm watching her eyes, the pupils are continually focusing (large to small) while she is fixed on one object, that is what she has been saying for some time, she can actually feel them moving and when she is out in public some stores make her dizzier than others and she keeps saying that it feels like it is in her eyes. Her focus keeps coming and going rapidly. What can and should we try now? Is there a certain eye specialist we should try? I've video taped the eye movement for a reference.
