Re: eye twitching and facial spasms with vestibular neuronitis
I had an MRI/MRA when my symptoms first started about 6 months ago and it was normal. I too had what my ENT called eyelid flutter. Everytime I would close my eyes, they would bounce around like crazy making it very hard to sleep. My dr said that whatever attacked my inner ear had probably also attacked my 5th and 7th cranial nerve causing the flutter. I don't really buy that though, because my eyelid flutter is almost completely gone now. But everytime, I have a sinus infection or cold, my eye starts to twitch. My arm will be numb/tingling for a few days at a time, and then it will be fine again. It's so wierd. I never would have imagined that having inner ear problems, could cause so many syptoms that seem to be so unrelated. It is very comforting to read everyones threads and know that I am not going crazy, other people are going through the same thing as me. Thank you for your response.
