Hi. Do you have the CBC results? Do you have his MCV? It sounds like he is orthostatic, that his blood pressure is dropping as he stands, which can be seen in anemia. Did they order a serum iron, TIBC, and ferritin levels? Get back to me to discuss this further Dr frank
Did they check his eye movements for abnormal jerking (nystagmus)? There is a condition BPPV (benign paroxysmal and positional vertigo). It gives you a spinning sensation with sudden head movements. Vomiting comes with the spinning. Treatment is meclizine (antivert) 12.5 mg three times a day and bed rest with his head elevated at 30 degrees above the horizontal. This usually is the result of a virus that effects his inner ear, or balance mechanism, Dr Frank
I see from you history that you have posted many of these questions. I will opt out. Dr Frank
The other expert has opted out and no other Neurologist has responded, so the question has been opened to other Medical experts.
It would be very unlikely that this could be due to a brain tumor, particularly with symptoms of the duration that your husband has been experiencing. We typically would not be concerned about a brain tumor unless there are worrisome findings on neurologic examination or if there are persistent symptoms with no apparent cause.
