ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Extreme vertigo spells which cause me to be bedridden. They come on by no specific trigger. I can be driving, eating dinner, sleeping in the middle of the night, or just sitting watching a program. They come on suddenly and violently. I get very hot and sweaty and feel like there is a tight band around my head. I can no longer sit upright and sometimes vomiting also occurs. When the episode is ending, sometimes a few hours, sometimes several hours, I feel ice cold like I can't get warm and often see double for awhile after the episode. I've been to neurologist, ear/nose/throat, cardiologist. Each sends me back to the other stating they can't find anything in their field that would be causing the issue.
