Report So i took VNG/Rotary Chair/VEMP tests for vertigo in Dysautonomia Discussion Posted yesterday at 03:11 AM Anybody had these tests done? To prepare for the VNG test, i had to clean out my right ear with debrox drops. I was at home and flushing my ear out. After about the 10th flush with hot water, i got really hot. I lost all of my balance. I was on the ground and couldn't get up and everything was spinning. My wife brought me my BP machine. it was around 170s/100. I layed there for 20 minutes or so and got up and i was fine. a few days later i went to take the VNG test. It was fine until they blew cold/hot air into my ears. The cold air i had no problems with. Then they blew hot air into my right ear. i expected to get dizzy but had no issues. When they blew hot air into my left ear is when i got pretty dizzy. She said water is usually seen as more harsh which i would agree with. it didn't take me long to recover. They said i had bilateral weakness in both ears. So my ENT doc wanted me to take the rotary chair test and the VEMP test to see if the issues of my ears was a physical or neurological problem. We both figured neurological because of the POTS. I took the rotary chair test first. They spun me around pretty slowly in a dark chamber with goggles on asking me random questions. when the chair stopped, i was dizzy instantly. then they said okay we are going to increase the speed. i wasnt feeling well already. i was strapped in with a seatbelt. the chair was spinning around so fast, the only thing that kept me in the chair was the seatbelt. i was hurting so bad i guess i was closing my eyes and they said keep your eyes open. the chair stopped and i couldn't take it anymore. i had to get out. this was the most suffering i've ever experienced in my life. my hands were tingling like crazy. i bet my BP was through the roof. i layed down for 20 minutes. i knew i wasnt going to get any better that day so i pushed through the VEMP test. conclusion? they said nothing was wrong which contradicts my VNG test results(at another hospital). i imagine how i felt that day is how some people feel when they are dying. it's not like an ouch i broke my toe pain. it's an internal suffering i can't explain. i would of rather broken my toe. i was sick until the next day. anybody else do these tests and have similar results? i see my ENT doc tomorrow to go over everything. i am also wanting to get my tonsils removed. she said because of my condition i might have to be in the hospital for 7 or 8 days because of dysautonomia. i am scared to get the surgery done now. but since i've had full blown pots, my heart pounds out of my chest when my tonsils get infected. which happens at least once a year.
