help should I travel on plane
Hello I've posted on here a while back with all kinds of dizzy symptoms, I still suffer here and there from it, but function much better and can even go awhile not feeling dizzy at all. I have been tested for all kinds of things and all doctors and have never been diagnosed with anything except anxiety. Any how I haven't traveled on a plane since this started and I am sooo afraid to do it. what would happen to my dizziness if this is truly a inner ear thing? I dont know what to do? I can't imagine never flying somewhere because I'' always wonder if I can or not. Has anyone traveled on a plane with inner ear problems and got worse after because of it? Help I need some imput. Thank you

Re: help should I travel on plane
It depends on the type of problem. And without a diagnosis, it is hard to say whether flying will bother you.

You should be able to fly safely, but it is possible that you will notice an escalation in symptoms during or after. It just depends on whether you are willing to take that risk.

I just revisited your old posts. Have you considered migraine-associated vertigo?

If you have every had moderate-severe headaches in your life, or if you have a family history of migraine, this diagnosis would be very likely.

I had migraines through out my 20's they were the ones with aroura I had vision problems squiggly lines in eyes then a pounding headache for rest of day. I don't have them anymore. And only get normal headaches. I don't think it MAV. But I'll ask Doc bout it. Thx for replying . 

With the history of Migraine, MAV is very likely. It is very common for MAV patients experience balance problems during headache-free intervals.
