My husband for 4 months now has dizzy spells and falls down, We cannot pinpoint any specific thing that brings it on - usually just while walking and there is no association with having eaten or not - he may fall down 3-4 times a day and he may go for a day or 2 with no episodes. We have been to PC physician and had a physical in January. - Cholesterol and sugar levesl were slightly elivated - triglicerides were over 300. he referred us to an ENT for the dizzyness after a patch for Vertigo did nothing. The ENT ordered an MRI which came back clean and then did a bunch of balance other tests for "Ear Rocks?" Nothing there - he ordered additional Blood work which was done the end of April - yesterday we went in to review those tests and his Triclicerides are now over 500 and this is after cutting out most sweets, white flours, potatoes and white rice in addition to taking Glucaphage for 3 months. The ENT is sending us back to the PCP and suggesting a Cardiologist and if nothing shows up there, a Neurosurgeon. Can anyone give us any suggestions? Where is Dr House when you need him?
