From this study (1 month ago):
using the wrong words, unable to remember words
From this study (2 months ago):
I want to know if all of the above taken daily is the cause of my dizziness which gives me no warning, but swoops in an last for a few minutes with a slight headache over the eyes afterward.
I have been to my internalist, cardiologist, 2 dizziness doctors, 2 neurologists, and no one has asked or checked on my medicines. None can tell me why I get dizzy. So I am taking it upon myself to try to find out. All vital signs have been checked and am given a clean bill of health.
From this study (5 months ago):
Vertigo, nausea and deafness seem to come and go. I also get fulness in the ear. With no seemingly causing factor. Was told I had meniers disease. However have now been told I may have auditory neuropathy.
