In January 2006 my daughters and I were in an automobile accident. I hit the left side of my head really hard. Since then I have been having episodes of Vertigo. I describe it as being on a merri-go-round and waiting for it to stop so I can get off. Some of the epidsodes are very quick and others take up to a minute (could be longer but I've never timed them). None of my doctors can find any reason for them. I have seen my family physician, Neurologist, E.N.T. and audiologist. I have had 2 MRI's and an MRA and they do not reveal anything. I have also had several other tests by the ENT for my ears and eye movements. I am on Trileptal which keeps the major episodes away but not small ones. Nothing seems to be the exact cause of them. I can be sitting, lying down, standing, walking, driving (it terrifies me when I have them while driving which thankfully is not often)...I have fullness, ringing and have lost almost all of the hearing in my right ear since a sinus infection in November. Any advice from anyone????

  • Hopefully some doc thought about Benign Positional Vertigo, which can be started with trauma. Look it up and try the positions. Can't hurt...I guess.
