Vertigo and Seizures?

Hello all,

I started having weird vertigo spats after a plane ride about three years ago. As I walked off of the planes, I didnít feel like I was spinning more like the ground was moving below my feet. On that whole vacation I was having these spells constantly and realized that they were coming on after I would get off of the elevator. I also suffer from simple partial seizures but was told that one had nothing to do with the other. I did see a ears, nose and throat specialist and had a eng done with normal results. (My tests were also limited due to my risk of seizing) My seizures are supposedly caused from a calcium deposit on the back of the brain.

If you could give me ANY information that may be of help, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks all,
Juls

Hi

The vertigo sounds like an "Inner Ear"(Vestibular) problem---the ENG is not always "conclusive"---take a look at the "Information Archive" 1st post on this board "Sticky" could be a number of vestibular injuries causing the vertigo...the Doc's who specialize in Vestibular Injuries are:

NEUROTOLOGIST

Re: Vertigo and Seizures?

Hi, there--

Could this have any relation to maldebarquement (sp?) sydrome? If so, that syndrome seems to also be related to migraine, which I believe in turn is perhaps somewhat related to seizure issues--I could be wrong about this, but I've read some things that led me to connect the conditions. (For example, antiseizure medications are used to treat migraine.)
