Two years ago or so I developed symptoms which have been puzzling doctors - waking up violently from sleep feeling nausea and pins and needles everywhere which have developed through time to Cervical Vertigo and we believe now - MAV.
I do not get any eye jumping but have Tinnitus and Aura - I also get what I can only describe as like im looking through an old video camera with lines apparent in my vision.
I have had MRI scans of my head and CT scans of my neck looking for blocked arteries which have come back negative.
I get Cervical triggered Vertigo by slightly moving my neck forward at work looking down at my keyboard and have been recently been getting pains in my head while having one of these waking episodes which worsened over the last three weeks to the point where I was having them every night and getting no sleep . . a Hospital Doctor prescribed me with Propranolol and these episodes have ceased. I feel much better with just the odd twinge of vertigo - I am still getting the visual and Tinnitus issues though. I am due to go for Specialist testing for BPPV and other forms of Vertigo with my new private Ear, Nose and Throat Consultant.
What I did notice and is my question to you - is there any link to lifting heavy objects and Vertigo - I went Ten Pin Bowling and the next day I had a bad Vertigo attack - and lifted something heavy three weeks ago before the start of my daily night attacks…
