Vestibular Paroxysmia Treatment in London

Vestibular paroxysmia is an uncommon condition that shares many symptoms with other maladies of the inner ear. For that reason, it is essential that you seek out expert advice rather than ignoring the problem or attempting to self-diagnose. Self-diagnosis may result in long-term balance issues, while simply allowing symptoms to fester may result in a more serious condition going undiagnosed. Harley Street AVM provide timely and effective vestibular paroxysmia treatment in London that can help put you back on the road to robust health.

Vestibular Paroxysmia Causes

The exact cause of Vestibular paroxysmia is unclear but one theory is that it is believed to be the result of pressure being applied to the acoustic nerve by surrounding blood vessels. The pressure interferes with the nerve’s ability to perform its natural function with the result being various sorts of distressing symptoms. 

Vestibular Paroxysmia Symptoms

Symptoms of vestibular paroxysmia vary in type and intensity but usually include one or more of the following:

  • Frequent attacks of the room around you is spinning while you are still
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ear)
  • Hyper-sensitivity to noise both before and during the attack of dizziness
  • A loss of balance while walking or running
  • Muscle spasms on one side of the face

Attacks are typically spontaneous and may last anywhere from a few seconds to a minute. Some people may only experience periodic attacks of vestibular paroxysmia while others may endure as many as 30 attacks per day.

Vestibular Paroxysmia Diagnosis

Diagnosis is typically based on the symptoms the person is experiencing. As we said at the opening, however, there can be considerable symptomatic overlap between this and other conditions so it is vital you consult with an expert that can discern the often subtle differences between inner ear conditions. Other potential causes such as Meniere’s disease, vestibular migraine, BPPV and more need to be eliminated before an effective treatment regime can be prescribed.
