Hi everyone any help gladly welcomed…
I was diagnosed in March 21 with VM. Initially the consultant thought I had suffered a mini stroke CT/MRI clear however once history taken of aura, photophobia,phonophobia, severe imbalance and terrible neck/head ache vm was suspected diagnosis.
I was sent home from hospital with Aspirin and prochlorperazine. My symptoms have continued since March they are there everyday but have dampened since I began to take Amitriptyline 75mg and prochlorperazine buccal. I attended ENT consultant in June of this year and the following reported:
HINTS/Hall spike tests negative
Vhit test normal gains no saccades
Rombergs test positive and ataxic gait present…
I am due to see my ENT next week and am half expecting him to say there’s nothing wrong because of my vhit result. Can anyone advise what I should be asking for at the next appointment? The dizziness and imbalance is the worst it’s happens unexpectedly whenever I twist, tilt, bend, turn or stretch my head… Also room/eyes spin when I am in bed or turning over even when eyes are closed or open… Please help I don’t know what I should be asking… I live in Northern Ireland
Thank you so much
