Looking at a beer allergy
I am battling an unusual situation. Since October / November of 2010, I have been battling fairly frequent spells that include stiff neck, dizziness, tingling in extremities, and the occasional headache and/or migraine. Finally broke down last spring and asked my GP about it. After discussion we decided first to perform a CT scan which showed a blip in the brain stem. A follow up MRI showed nothing so he recommended I go to an Ear, Nose and Throat thinking it may be a sinus or ear issue.
At the Ear Nose and Throat they put me through the paces, reviewing the previous CT and MRI and even tested my ear structure and hearing. He did not seem to think that there was a problem from that standpoint other than a minor restriction in my nose. He referred me to a Vertigo Neurosurgeon specialist for testing because some of my symptoms mimmicked vertigo symptoms. After a battery of tests and another MRI the Vertigo doc seemed to think it was a type of migraine. As the late spring and summer continued the symptoms were few and far between. Now waiting on a Migraine Specialist appointment that was scheduled for September (appointment made in June) and now has been rescheduled for November.
As I am writing this I am now into day 2 of my latest bout with the above symptoms and the only trigger that I can come up with was that I had one bottle of a Sam Adams beer on Saturday night. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
