dizzy for 12 months
« on: April 02, 2012, 12:43:06 pm »
I am 58 years old and suddenly 12 months ago became dizzy. I have been to an internist, ophthalmologist,cardiologist,rheumatologist and 2 neurologists. So far I have had normals MRIs(open MRI with contrast agent of brain, ear canals and orbits) and my hearing was tested as normal. Recently also had an ABR test which came back abnormal. I have also had alot of bloodwork and physical therapy. The first neurologist I saw ordered the physical therapy because I was not moving my neck.
The second neurologist I saw has now mentioned going to Northwestern in downtown Chicago. I live in the northern suburbs.Please let me hear from you . I live alone, have no insurance and am totally confused.

Thank you


Thank you
