Default Alan's results of his VIDEONYSTAGMOGRAPHY

Wow, that's a big word.

It comes down to this:

Everything was NORMAL, except a paragraph towards the end of the results.

IMPRESSION
Peripheral - these results indicate a left peripheral vestibular lesion involving the lateral semicircular canal or its afferent pathways based on the abnormalities seen during bithermal caloric testing.

Central There is no evidence of central vestibular dysfunction.

RECOMMENDATIONS.
Balance rehabilitation is indicated, including log roll canalith repositioning maneuvers targeting the left lateral semicircular canals. Clinical correlation is recommended.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS.

Alan just picked the results up from Dr. Fred's office.

There were SO many people there, and Alan did not have an appointment, that I said "let me ask the guys on the forum."

Alan is bringing this report to his next appointment on May 10th, with his neurologist. I gather she will explain the whole thing to him.

Again, everything was normal, except for the last paragraph.

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks much

Melody

I had this test when I was in my 20's. I had terrible vertigo when I was younger.

I have had several "attacks" since then. When the test was done, it showed my left vestibular nerve was not functioning.
The thought then was that occasionally it woke up and interfered with my adjustment (in the brain) and caused havoc.

The repositioning bit...is what is used for benign positional vertigo.
This sort of explains it:

His might be slightly different, but the principle is the same.

I had a terrible time with metformin and vertigo, 6mos into using it. I had to stop it in fact. It really gave me a terrible time with the vertigo.

When I had my thyroid fixed, most of the acute attacks ended...except for that metformin incident!

Hi.

when I clicked on the link I immediately recognized the various positions that were shown because years ago Alan had a vertigo attack that was so scary, we had to call the paramedics. They took him to the hospital. The diagnosed him with Benign Positional Vertigo.

A few hours later he was up and we took a cab home.

I never wish to see this happen to him (or anyone) ever again. Very scary to feel the floor coming up at you.

Anyway, thanks so much for the info.

I'll update with whatever info his neuro gives us.

Oh, by the way Mrs. D. I just bought a Neti pot today.

I'm going to post a new thread on the Allergy forum

Thanks again

Melody
