      do you experience a bit of dizziness? is this what is called "vertigo"??

      I'm still in need of all the tests and whatnot, so I am not exactly sure what conditions are associated with hyperacusis. I know H is a symptom and not the underlying condition. I hope what's going on with me isn't something worse than the H. I'm currently experiencing fatigue, dizziness, and one pupil is constricted. and I'm getting headaches again.

      I have a msg in with my doc. I see audiologist tomorrow.

      I got a reply from my doc. He is recommending a neurologist. The neurologist's clinical interests are Parkinson's, stroke, and dementia. No mention of H or T.

      I think neurotologist is the way to go. I don't need referrals, and was thinking maybe just finding my own.

      thoughts?

      Im a bit vague on this topic but a very good eyedoctor could help? Probably the neurologist couldnt hurt:)

      ophthalmologists don't do MRIs and stuff like that.

      why would you lean towards neurologist and not neurotologist? Seems that the neurotologist would specialize in ear and eye issues more.

      lol

      I didn't mean to say "opthalmologists don't do MRIs"... meant to say I don't think they do.

      I have my audiology followup today. and I have a msg in with my son's audiologist (knowledgeable about H and T and all sorts of interesting ear stuff!). I'll find out more.

      gotta run!

      geez... had one small laugh with my mom and I immediately had a dizzy spell. It hasn't gone away and that was 1.5 hrs ago.

      I called to see if I could get in to see neurologist and they are booking out to April. I said I can't wait that long.... I'm in crisis mode. (diff size pupils, headaches, dizzy, H....)

      I'll be going to the ER. I'm going to rest a bit and see if that'll help the dizzy subside until tomorrow. I'm so dang tired!! I have no ride at the moment anyway. I'd have to call an ambulance.

      As far I as know, vertigo, is not associated with hyperacusis. It's probably just fluid in the ear. Speaking of mothers, my mother recently had a bout of vertigo from fluid in the ear.
