Drunken feeling, light sens, noise sensiv

My daughter 20 was studying abroad in Ireland last semester and she got strep and with it weird symptoms: drunken feeling, light sensivity, and noise sensivit. The doctor there gave her penicillin. After the first prescription, the sore throat was still there, so they gave her another prescription of penicillin. She was on an off airplanes all semester (don't know if it is important).

When she got home to the US, she had strep and those symptoms again. She saw an ENT and this summer she got her tonsils removed (because she kept getting strep every couple of weeks). For one month after the tonsils were removed, NO symptoms of drunken feeling, light sensivity and noise sensivitity. Those symptoms have just begun again .... it is so frustrating -- does anyone have any guidance???? We are going to see another ENT person at Mass Eye and Ear -- could this possibly be a vestibular migraine ? any help would be appreciated - thanks

Re: Drunken feeling, light sens, noise sensiv

this sounds like migraine associated vertigo... you would have to put her on the migraine diet and a preventative medication..

did the symptoms start right after she got off the plane??
