A little update and some additional questions.
Melanoma ex cellular blue nevus, stage 2b. Diagnosed in January. Was on my scalp. Thankfully it seemed to be localized and was surgically removed.
Started feeling dizzy in March. Dizzy spells continued and got worse as the year went on. Constantly dizzy now.
Scans are all clear. (CT and MRI). Been referred to ENT - they're doing a bunch of tests on 11/30. I did have a VNG which came back as normal, and the dizziness was OK for the day or so after they blew all that hot and cold air in my ears for the test. Not sure if that was just coincidence or not.
I did have an 'incident' in 10/8. I took tramadol for back pain, ended up in the ER. Thought I was having a stroke. Almost lost consciousness. I was in bed reading at the time. Felt insanely dizzy, like I never have before. Everything kind of morphed in on itself and pulled to the left. Felt as if my brain kind of morphed in on itself as well. Felt my eyes going back in my head. Fun times. I was just about able to call for my wife and by the time she made it to the room I was "OK" in the sense that I wasn't losing consciousness anymore, but the dizziness was still there. Went to the ER, CAT scan was fine. They put it down to a mixture of Tramadol & my current dizziness.
I'm really hoping it is just some inner ear thing, but incredibly worried obviously. I'm concerned they've missed something. I'm constantly dizzy and feel foggy.
Did anyone with brain mets feel like this? There's no headaches or pain, foggy and dizzy all the time. It is awful.
