Vertigo is a sensation of spinning while stationary. It is commonly associated with nausea or vomiting, unsteadiness (postural instability), falls, changes to a person's thoughts, and difficulties in walking. Recurrent episodes in those with vertigo are common and frequently impair the quality of life. Blurred vision, difficulty in speaking, a lowered level of consciousness, and hearing loss may also occur. The signs and symptoms of vertigo can present as a persistent (insidious) onset or an episodic (sudden) onset.
Persistent onset vertigo is characterized by symptoms lasting for longer than one day and is caused by degenerative changes that affect balance as people age. Naturally, the nerve conduction slows with aging and a decreased vibratory sensation is common. Additionally, there is a degeneration of the ampulla and otolith organs with an increase in age. Persistent onset is commonly paired with central vertigo signs and systems.
The characteristics of an episodic onset vertigo is indicated by symptoms lasting for a smaller, more memorable amount of time, typically lasting for only seconds to minutes. Typically, episodic vertigo is correlated with peripheral symptoms and can be the result of but not limited to diabetic neuropathy or autoimmune disease.
So, for a while now I've been having 'unexplained dizzy spells' on occasion my eyes flick rapidly side to side when it happens it occurred to me just this afternoon I have all of the symptoms for episodic onset vertigo. I umm and ahh when I'm trying to decide IF what I'm feeling is directly linked to Endo or not, I felt a fire in my belly as I got to the end of the paragraph, autoimmune disease, correct me if I'm wrong but Endo is classed as an autoimmune disease? There's a test called Dix–Hallpike test, no doubt will turn into a battle with my Dr when I request it....
Anybody got any thoughts? Am I just being a bit...crazy linking them? I wanna hear your thoughts please!
*It just occurred to me diabetes does run in my family, but I don't have it.
