Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

Positional Nausea

11/18/2004

Question:

I have been experiencing positional nausea since Memorial Day Weekend. Have had MRIs done, tons of blood test. Nothing found yet. Went to a local ENT and he attempted to run test. When they blew air in my ear, I became sick. My doctor is at wits end and said that a neuro otologist may be the answer.

Answer:

Yes, I agree that seeing an ear specialist (called an otologist or neurotologist) would be an excellent plan.
