I am looking to answer some questions about thyroid issues and vertigo. My husband has severe occurences with vertigo that are not really under control at this point. We have found out that he needs a thyroid ultrasound due to an incidental finding on a CT of his spine that the right thryiod lobe appears to have a nodule. His bloodwork results are as follows: TSH 0.69mIU/L FT4 1.00ng/dL TT3 1.21mcg/mL Are these normal? Could there be a connection with the vertigo and the thyroid, his primary care Dr. does not feel that the two would be related especially since when my husband gets his vertigo attacks he only feels it within himself no room spinning or anything. We are at a standstill with this whole thing at this point. He is currently taking Valium to help with attacks and Meclizine when a vertigo attack starts, then he needs to sleep it off for a couple of hours.
Hi Amy- Have you taken him to an ENT?
My first suggestion would be to find a chiropractor who does the Epley maneuver.....this is a painless and harmless procedure, to adjust the ear crystals. When these crystals get displaced it can cause severe vertigo. With the epley maneuver they can put them back into place, thus fixing the vertigo issue.
