Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
Have you had any tests like a carotid doppler, tilt table, EEG, Serum electrolyte panel?
Okay, did he give you any treatment to alleviate the symptoms?
Okay, and have you felt that it is working?
Okay, what tests did your Neurologist do?
Well, I would recommend a detailed discussion with your Neurologist on the other possible conditions that can cause these symptoms, jumping to a diagnosis like Basilar artery migraine or Migraine Syncope is not recommended unless other possible causes have been ruled out.
Blood flow problems due to carotid or vertebral artery narrowing because of plaque deposition, seizures and electrolyte imbalances are more common so they should be ruled out first.
Autonomic dysfunction also comes to mind with your symptoms.
To rule these things out, a carotid artery doppler ultrasound, electrolyte panel, EEG, tilt table test are the minimum tests that should be done.
I would also recommend a blood sugar level both fasting and random.
Do you have any further queries?
Yes, and a ear and eye examination is also warranted.
Ear exam with an otoscope in detail and an eye examination with an ophthalmoscope or in front of a slit lamp.
Please do not worry, anxiety and stress will aggravate your symptoms only and not to anything to correct them.
I would suggest that you focus your energy on being proactive towards a diagnosis and treatment.
That will be beneficial and I think you have already started in the right direction and are being proactive.
Consulting online and reading up on your symptoms is the first step towards wanting a proper diagnosis.
