Finally he was admitted to hospital because of intractable pain and shortness of breath. Ultimately admitted to ICU, with tracheostomy, artificial ventilation and long term iv sedation. Tomotherapy continued.
Worsening condition despite treatment. But relative insisted on as active treatment as possible.

- The fear that follows an attack of vertigo
I awoke one morning and it appeared my furniture was moving in the room. Everything was spinning. I have a ringing in my left ear. Went to an ENT who threw my condition into the catch 22 pile and said I had Meniere Disease. I would not accept that after I researched the horrible ailment. I sought the treatment of a Neurologist who gave me several test including the rotary chair test. He said I did not have Meniere's. I was relieved from the ringing in my ear for a couple of years and then it returned about a month ago with vengeance. I have had no more vertigo attacks like the first, but have had them at bedtime a few times and when I awake I feel fine and they are gone. I am left with a head full of fear since the ENT said I have that dreadful disease. I continue thinking what if it happens at work, or worse while I am driving. Is there anyone who can explain to me just what brings on vertigo and ringing in the ear other then the diagnose the ENT gave me? I remember having vertigo when I was a teen ager but went for years before another attack. How can I eliminate the fear that follows me wherever I go; fear that I will experience an attack somewhere other than my home. Thank you and God bless.
- Still ill after several years (1 response)
I became ill several years ago.
It all started with a head cold that lasted a few months and left me with Tinnitus and chronic sinusitis.
After a nose operation and many visits to the doc and hospital, I am no closer to felling better or being cured.
My doc gave me Beconase Aq at first and this made me very unwell, causing me fatigue which would last for a few days. I'm still searching for help.
- Clindamycin - vertigo and nausea
2 days in after starting on clendamycin for tooth infection I began having slight vertigo which steadily increased the next day. Nausea present with vomiting. I saw primary doc & I mentioned I was on this antibiotic which was told this could be the source of my problem and to stop taking medicine & consult w/my dentist. I have had 2 slight incidences with vertigo in the last 6 mos. which I assumed was happening not realizing it could be the clendamycin. I do not remember reading this interaction in the enclosed directions. Symptoms have pretty much resolved by today. I believe it was the clendamycin that caused this but have not hard proof

- Can crestor cause vertigo? (2 responses)
I started taking Crestor in May of 2011. I had my first big "episode" in June.
Severe vertigo, loss of balance, slurred speech, fatigue, loss for words, tingling, numbness, pressure in back of head...
Didn't have all at once, but went to hospital via ambulance twice. Was first given 1000 mg of keppra for seizures -- way too much-- I'm only 4'10/95 lbs.
Went back to neuro. Took me off keppra. Started testing for MS.
Had 2 spinal taps and 3 or 4 MRIs. Had another severe attack and was hospitalized with diagnosis of TIA.
First thought I needed a stent in P1 segment of artery . Went to stent specialist. Didn't need it at all.
Was on antibiotics for Lyme for about five or six months.
The neuro said I was " an enigma wrapped in a riddle."
Found different neuro!
Meanwhile, a friend said that statins could cause these same symptoms.
I took myself off Crestor. After about three weeks, my symptoms dissipated.
I still have fatigue( blood tests are normal) but I have had only two very, very tiny spells of vertigo. My speech has not been slurry.
So far, so good. I haven't driven in months, since the vertigo would come on suddenly. Couldn't risk hurting someone myself! Yesterday, I drive a couple miles to the post office!
Continuing with my experiment of being off the Crestor until my next visit to the neurologist.
I was a school principal and took early retirement because of the severe effects. If I retired early because of Crestor... goodness gracious...
I was debilitated at work. I'd be fine ones ire and the next, I'd be holding onto the desk, ad the room was spinning-- or my secretaries would have to hold me as I hobbled into the nurse's office-- or I would hold onto the wall as I walked down the hallway.
Couldn't run a school like that. I wish I stopped taking Crestor 2 years ago!!!!
Oh... and the pharmacist and neurologist said they don't connect Crestor to the severe vertigo because it wasn't on the list of side effects!
