I am 4+ years post op (retrosigmoid) to remove a 3+ cm AN. This year I have had intense and sudden episodes of vertigo, like I'm upside down on a roller coaster vertigo. I can't find any rhyme or reason to why they occur…the trigger. Two times I have been a passenger in a car, but this last episode occurred while I was sitting in a restaurant. I had not had any alcohol either. I an 49 years old and I have never had a vertigo attack before or after my AN, until recently. My vestibular system is shot. This AN has drastically altered my life and now this is a new occurrence. I am not saying with 100% certainty that they are related but it would seem that there must be some connection.
I've read other posts where people have experienced vertigo.
Three questions: have any of you suffered vertigo many years after surgery?
Have you figured out a trigger? and is there a drug that has successfully treated your vertigo and/or balance problems?
