Dizzy Spells
Tue Apr 15, 2014 03:30


I am back after a long absence. I do read the posts and have referred lots of people to this site. I have a small B. Meningioma that was diagnosed in 2000 it is near my optic nerve and is the size of the bottom of a pencil eraser. I have suddenly started having dizzy spells not a lot but enough to worry me. I haven't passed out and am aware of my surroundings. I have had MRI's every year since diagnosis and they show no change. Could these dizzy spells be related to the M even though my MRI shows no change??? Last MRI was mid December and these have started since then. I have stopped talking two medications thinking that might be the problem but while fewer I am still having them. Any ideas thoughts suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Kathleen
