Customer Question
I have had several episodes...
I have had several episodes in the past of vertigo lasting a few hours. I usually sense it in the middle of the night and always wake up with it. It typically lasts through the morning. Sometimes I am better in a couple of hours but almost always by lunch time. I have seen a neurologist before and had a CT scan during one of the episodes. Nothing was abnormal about the scan or my in office neruologvial testing.I also had ear and balance testing with ENT and he my eyes checked. Based on all of these tests being normal, I was diagnosed with atypical migraines.This morning I woke up with vertigo and it felt like the other times. I had sensed it during the night so was not surprised. However it hasn't gotten better and I also have sweaty/clammy hands and feet today, as well as a general pressure in my head.I don't recall having these during the previous episodes. Is this any cause for concern or is it likely the same as the other episodes, just lasting longer and with a few other symptoms?

The only symptoms I have are the vertigo, the sweaty hands/feet, and head discomfort (it's not quite a headache; more like pressure). I also feel chilled.This episode started this morning, though I did sense the vertigo throughout the night as I was trying to sleep.I do not take any medication. I have idiopathic gastroparesis and IBS. The vertigo has been diagnosed previously as atypical migraines.

Thank you for that additional information.

This does sound like a bit longer lasting episode of the same thing you have had in the past.

That being said perhaps it would be useful to get a second opinion. If you wanted to take this course I would suggest you meet with a Professor of Medicine at a teaching hospital.

At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.

I know that it is going to take significant effort on your part, but I believe that going to one of the "Medical Mecca's" is your best chance to – finally -- get to the bottom of what is going on.

Does this make sense to you?

Okay, I appreciate that advice. I will look into teaching hospitals near me. It would be nice to have a more definitive answer about what is causing these episodes and what to do about it.But it doesn't sound particularly worrisome, then, just a longer episode than usual?
