Hello, I’ve been visiting this site for a few weeks and I believe I may be suffering with the same affliction as everyone on this site. It started almost 3 years ago with terrible bouts of vertigo. After some tests my ENT said it was a viral infection and it would eventually go away. Well, it’s been a couple of years since he told me that and my vertigo has been replaced with a daily unsteadiness followed by a bad headache. I live in the Toronto area, can anyone recomend someone who is familiar with MAV because all my GP has said was " Your too young for this " Thanks.
so sorry you’re suffering from this with no answers in several years. I am not familiar with docs in your area. perhaps this site can help vestibular.org/find-medical- … sional.php
I personally have not seen Dr. Parnes but have friends who have been to him.
