I had VM in May 2012 10 months ago. I currently live in Atlanta, USA but am a Brit. The care here was great when I was in hospital for the first 8 days then I had to lobby to speak to a Neurologist who had me follow his pen with my eyes. He wanted to do another MRI (Had one when admitted) and another Lumbar puncture.
Over here I have health insurance as there is no public health care so I was already $7000 in the hole (5,000 GBP). So I declined both.
A friend recommended a Neuro Chiropractor. I had never heard of such. He put a set of goggles on me that track my eyeballs. Then I have to watch a cursor moving slowly up/down and left/right. Then faster. Then the cursor just appeared.
Then he had me on a balance machine.
The result were that I was profoundly weak at tracking on my right side and up and down (why scrolling on a computer is impossible). I was missing the target and slow.
So he gave me exercises to do at home to retrain my brain. I have a set of 10 dots in a colum on a peice of paper taped to the wall. I have to count up to the 4th one then stare at it and nod my head up and down 5 times, then up agin 5 times and nod. I thought it was all a bit of mumbo jumbo but.....it seems to be working.....
Just thought I would let you guys know. Anybody else heard of Neuro Chiropractors?
