I ended up at the neurologist because the ENT thought I had MS based on my vertigo, persistent nausea, and my lack of coordination and balance. The neurologist was scary but said I have vestibular migraine with and without aura. The neuro-ophthalmologist said the blurred vision, cloudy vision and echo's were because I needed glasses. I had an MRI done 8/25/17 and was freaked out by what it said.
It said I did not have MS which was a huge relief, however it did say: The posterior fossa appears somewhat small and there is a downward displacement of the cerebellar tonsils approximately 8 mm below the level of
the foramen magnum. There is also mild associated medullary kinking.
When I asked the neurologist he said: This is a normal anatomical variant that cannot explain your condition.
So I looked it up and it was scary. I saw the CNO and talked about the MRI and my symptoms. I have migraines at least 3-4 times per week, walk like I am a drunk on a three day bender, forget things (passwords, SSN, where I am, etc), say the wrong things, lose words, have trouble swallowing, limb jerks and hand tremors.
I am waiting for the results of my CSF MRI. The doctors believe that it is migraine disorder and so far the medicine they prescribed is not helping. I honestly think that my gait, speech and thinking have gotten worse.
I know you are not doctors. I am just looking for honest answers and a reality check.
