HI...I would highly suggest u get to a dr and get an MRI to see what is going on....this is not a normal situation and if u drive u do not want something to happen when u do not turn that far....how will u know if that changes until it happens?
Get to a dr and inform them of this and request a MRI.
i would definitely seek medical attention. hope this helps.
The blackouts suggest oclusion of the carotid arteries.
This, of course, is not normal.
You need a professional medical evaluation to include a dye-contrast MRA (which defines blood vessels), and MRI and an ultrasound of the carotids. One question is whether or not the interior diameter of the carotids is being progressively diminished.
The physicians will know exactly what to do.
Physicians get mad when you "request an MRI".
The drill is to present your symptoms and let them order the tests.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, herniated disc, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc. A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. Please consult a neurologist. The treatment is to remove the compression. You have to discuss the best treatment option with a neurologist, which can range from medication to physiotherapy to traction, cervical collars or even surgery. Alternatively you can visit a chiropractor or a physical therapist and learn some exercises which you can do to relieve the compression.
The second possibility is vestibule-cochlear disease causing dizziness with change in position of head. Consult an ENT regarding this. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Thankyou for your informed responses.
It has really opened my eyes to what I need to do.
I use computers for over 14 hours day, everyday. have done for the last 5 years. My job as an Account Manager requires me to be on the phone & computer all day, and ironically, I hold the phone sandwiched between my right cheek and right shoulder! this could be a major contributing factor based on what you have said above.
I will contact my GP today and make an appointment. I will keep you all informed of outcome / results.
thankyou for your time & comments, it is gratly appreciated.
