Vestibular Neuronitis

Hello, everyone! I will be as brief as I can, I appreciate any and all positive responses in advance! I am a twenty-one year old female, I weigh somewhere between 140-150 pounds (relatively muscular) and I am 5'7". I have another post that has been unactive but if you would like to read it for more information the link is:

http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=866665


For over year I have been living with certain symptoms and struggling, yet nearly for ten months (at least thats when I noticed it) I have been living with Mydriasis and about three to four months ago I developed what I have been calling Oscillopsia. It is constant 24/7. I went to an Opthamologist this past Friday and was diagnosed with a "Convergence Insufficiency," as well as Oscillopsia as I suspected. I have started a round Acetazolamid because the doctor suggested this is a possible inner ear disorder. He said this medicine is experimental. He did see cupping on the optic nerves behind my right eye, but my intraocular pressure was 19 and 21. He scheduled me to return in two weeks, as well as making an appointment with my regular doctor, but he did mention that we may need to start thinking about visiting a Neuro-Opthamologist, so I am confused to whether or not I should be alarmed.

I guess my questions are what causes inner ear disorders? Has anybody experienced anything similar to what I have? Are all my eye problems related or can this all just be ironic? PLEASE respond.. Thank you!
