Jolt of dizziness when move my eyes

I dont know if this is the corrct place to post this but I was wondering if someone can help me out and/or has experienced the same thing. It is hard to explain but, I have been experiencing, what I describe as, dizzy jolts in my head. It only happens with movement. When I move my head & move my eyes around, I get a fast "rush" or "jolt" of dizziness or off balance to my eyes. I can also feel it in my ears and sometimes other parts of my body.It only lasts a couple of seconds if that and then thats it.
I have recently had a cold and i only started noticing it then, but I am not sure if it is more likely to be maybe something to do with an inner ear problem maybe, or just because I am still not over the cold. Its really annoying !!
It seems to be much worse when I am tired.
Any help would really be appreciated.

hey jon, go to dizzy lounge message boards, you should find some answers there. from what i've experienced sounds like inner ear problems due to the cold.

Hope you feel better

Re: Jolt of dizziness when move my eyes

I have something very similar. I have been suffering with dizzyness for many years now. I notice when I move my left eye from right to left I get an "electrical / buzzy" feeling in it. It seems to be coming from my ear as well. This does not happen with my right eye. The sensation gives me a nervous sensation. The sensation is pronounced when I'm very dizzy.

I've mentioned this to several doctors, including neurologists. No one seems to know why this is happening. I somehow believe it is the cause of my dizzyness, not a result of the dizzyness.

I'm wondering if anyone else has this.

Re: Jolt of dizziness when move my eyes

I've been getting what you describe for about 2 weeks now after having a chest/head cold. I've have chronic sinusitus and alergies for years now. I had a severe case of vertigo about 10 years ago and have had a little trouble with balance ever since but just lately am getting a zzt, zzt sound when I move my eyes with my head still or in motion. The sensation isn't there when I hold my eyes steady and move my head. It drives me nuts. The only match I can find when googling the symptoms is from people with MS, and that makes me pretty nervious. I am seeing my doctor tomorrow and hope he has heard of this before.
