Inner Ear Vs. Migraine?
Hello Again -
I posted this under another thread, but thought I would throw it out to see if anyone has any ideas? My abbreviated list of symptoms: numbness/tingling/pins and needles, sensitivity to light, dizziness, tinnitus, weak/crampy muscles. All of this comes and goes except the tinnitus, which is constant. My MRI showed white matter changes consistent with migraine.
I actually asked my neuro about migraine causing all of these symptoms and he said no! When I look up migraine online I cannot find any of the sensory symptoms either. Maybe I should try a migraine specialist?
I was thinking of going to an ENT b/c when all of this started 4 months ago, I went to the doctor because my left arm felt numb and I had dizziness. They checked my ears, said I had fluid in my ear (I was not sick, and ears felt fine) and that whatever was going on with my arm was not related to my dizziness. I have been freaking out about MS ever since, and am having a hard time trusting the MRI results.
In reading the posts on this board, it seems that dizziness and vertigo are the main symptoms and I cannot say that is true of my case. I have occasional dizziness that is associated with movement of my head. I have twin babies and sitting between them at the dinner table is the WORST. I look back and forth between them and just feel so dizzy and yucky. I will have a couple of dizzy days at a time and then feel OK for awhile, but the tingling is every day.
One other strange thing...before all of this started I would get migraines at least once every two weeks and they could be quite bad. Now they have diminished drastically. Maybe one a month and it isn't even bad enough to take an Immitrex. Maybe they switched to silent migraines? I am so confused.
Thanks for listening to me ramble...this is a great board and I have learned so much already.
