How to get correct diagnosis (visual vertigo)

I have been going to docs for the past 2 months trying to figure out what is wrong with me. After quite a bit of research I am almost certain I have visual vertigo. Supermarkets, driving on the freeway, and watching college football are killers for me.

I really want the correct diagnosis from doctors, which type of doctor should I be seeing and what tests should I have done?

Re: How to get correct diagnosis (visual vertigo)

It definitely sounds like visual vertigo. Visual vertigo is a symptom, not a diagnosis. So it is important to find out the cause of the visual vertigo. Visual vertigo is most likely caused by either a vestibular or central problem.

The ideal place to visit would be a balance clinic. They are usually staffed with Otologists/Neurotologists and they will be able to recommend you to a Neurologist if they suspect a central disorder. What type of health insurance do you have?
