How do you know this is an inner ear problem? Many different problems are associated with dizzy feelings and eye focus issues. How long does the dizzy feeling last? It could be anywhere between 1 second and a life time, depending on what the problem is. Others can chime in on other possible ways but the one way I know of a connection is through the vest...

Just a simple curiosity question. Can anyone explain the connection between the semicircular canals and the heart? The only answer I have so far doesn't go into enough detail to know if it is true, that there is a Fight or Flight connection to get your heart pumping from signals from the canals.

I've been of the board for some months but I ~may~ be able to help... This is a common response from Dr.s that don't know about a particular ear problem. Not saying you have it but since some still don't know about this it is something to ask your Dr.s about. First, have you talked to a lyrengologist?(is that spelled correctly?) If so then ...

Obviously I'm too late to respond before your Dr appointment, and I don't have any info to help directly. However, I have been studying a particular ear problem where one symptom is ear pressure, or feeling full. I do know that some foods will change the endolymph chemical make up which will make the inner ear pressure build up. When I read that ...

Prier to Jan. 2010 I had no idea there was a connection... Fix your eyes on an object across the room and move your head from side to side like your saying "No". The eyes will stay fixated on that object. Now try fixing your eyes dead center of your eye socket without fixing them on any object and move your head again the same way. They will stu...

As far as "debate" topics, I don't know. However, when ever you, KenKieth, and Ed34 get together there is some real interesting, erm, uhm, debating going on. Love to see a good drag out fight, erm, uhm, Debate between you two! ;-)

thingywhatisit, this is interesting, I'm interested in this disease simply because my syndrome has been mis-diagnosed as Menieres and many other diseases and conditions till 1998. Even then not all ent's and even otolyregoligists(spelling) know about SCDS. Anyhow, the reason Im posting is that we (SCDS sufferers) know eating Salt and a few other...

Two years to diagnose it? By chance did they look for superior semicircular canal dehiscence? This will give the same feeling since it also directly effects the balance system and it's still making its rounds to the knowledge of ear specialists. I.E. the first paper was published only 12 years ago on this condition and not all specialists know about it...

Pressure from inside the ear and head pressure? along side EDT? and some kind of dizzy feeling? Sounds to me (who don't know much) like an inner ear infection and/or many other inner ear problems. I'd talk to your PCP first and after being given something that doesn't work I'd talk to an ENT.

There are many reasons someone would be dizzy and off balance. The eye's, muscles, joints ears and semicircular canals work together to keep you "balanced" and a problem with any one of them can work against you.
