I have been having brief periods of lightheadedness (1-2 seconds) since mid-2006. Started having constant headaches in forehead, temple, sinus area and occasional right ear pressure in January. I have pulsatile tinnitus in my left ear and ringing tinnitus in my right.
Neuro ordered brain MRI and found 2 lesions (non-brainstem). Along with these symptoms, I've been having tingling/numbess in my feet and lower legs (have lumbar stenosis/disk herniation, so ??). Neuro is thinking MS, but LP is "normal".
Neuro suspects dizziness is MS related. I'm thinking more inner ear since I have a long history of sinus/allergy issues. I went to see an ENT PA and had a Tymp and Audiogram. During the Tympanometry test, I got dizzy when they put the pressure in my right ear.
My hearing is "excellent", no hearing loss however.
ENT PA didn't say anything about the tymp test and thinks TMJ and is sending me for a Sinus CT. If CT is ok, then sending me for PT for TMJ.
Neuro ordered a VNG and ABR. During the caloric test, the MD stated that I have something peripheral happening with my right ear. I had no dizziness during the cold air in both left/right ears, dizziness in the left ear only with the warm air, none in right ear. He said that dizziness during a Tymp is not normal... Don't have results of the ABR yet. Neuro appt to follow-up is next week, but I'm anxious.
So, has anyone had the dizziness with the Tymp? Any ideas as to what could cause this... I can't find any info online...
