I have had episodes for over a year now that when I I see fast moving objects in my view such as cars, etc. I get dizzy any want to pass out. From my research I have concluded that this is horizontal nystegamous. I see a neurolist and he does not say anything about this. My ENT, and medical doctor can't give me an answer. I'm frustrated and just want my life back. This is bad because I sometimes can't drive and I get vertigo symptoms that no one can explain. I feel that these Doctor's might think of me as a hypochondriac and not look at the real cause.

  • I've come across something like this before. It is when dizziness occurs in a busy environment. One explanation is that it is a hangover from an inner ear problem and another is that is migraine or travel sickness related. But no-one really knows. The recommended treatment I recall was to expose yourself to moving images (i.e. go out walking and move around rather than avoid it). You should rule out the obvious causes like neck and normal eyesight problems. I am particularly long-sighted in one eye and suffered similar problems a few years ago when given only a slightly misprescribed pair of spectacles. It should be relatively easy to see if you have nystagmus (which I think it probably isn't), but if it is the cause would need to be determined.
