I am a 29 Yr old male with a problem, still undiagnosed. I have a horrible off balance problem that has not resolved. All nuerologists found nothing significant, and labled it as a cerebellum ataxia. I have a normal MRI, ENT, bloodwork, EMG. I have tried valium, meclizine, and tricylcics, all have had no effect. But the only other syptoms that i have had include a rythmic forward and back bobbing of my head. It seems to follow my heartbeat. I did have an echo about 4-5 yrs ago, (to check family hx of MVP) and was found to have a slight mvp. Is it possible that the mitral valve has gotten worse? and now when i my hearbeats it actually moves my upper body? I ceratinly am more lightheaded and "in a fog", yet no-one has suggested a cardiogist, yet i believe this might be a wise decision? any suggestions. thnaks
