As you all inferred.. our visit to the local neurologist predominantly a waste a waste of time as he didn't even look at the MRI that we had done, and simply recited what we read on the report that is put together by the radiologist that initially reviewed the MRI. Worst yet, regarding our potential that it may be MS, he said that he's 85% certain that it isn't MS, and if we wanted to be further reassured that we can proceed with further tests: checkerboard.., spinal tap, etc.
He said that we need to go back to our ENT and that he still believes it is an inner-ear issue.. It was strange because he went to check on something and then simply disappeared, his nurse came in and finished off the visit with asking what testing we wanted to proceed with if any..
In summary we did get some "throw of a dart" that it might not be MS, hence the 85%, and got a name of a Doctor (Neurologist/Otologist MD) in Chicago that specializes with the inner ear.. that was Tuesday, and today Thursday we were able to get in to see this Doctor in Chicago..
From a rather lengthy appointment, very interesting as he spent the most time, and asked the most detailed questions in order to develop of timeline of all events and symptoms from our notes and recollection.. something that we haven't experienced yet, he even reviewed and commented on the MRI while we were in the appointment with him..
He's prescribed a few tests to conclude his diagnosis, mostly to exclude any potential ear diseases, but currently he's attributing all of our trouble to a possible diagnosis of "chronic migrainous vertigo" pending a few more tests..?
It seems to make sense, and we'll yet see what comes out.. Have any of you ever heard of this? i know it may be a silly crazy question have any of you considered that you may have this?
just thought i'd share..
