      Has anyone on this board heard of bilateral vestibular dysfuction with CIDP or any other form of sensory-motor polyneuropathy?

      I did a random internet search last night and came up with a few hits on the bvd + pn but there wasn’t too much info. In may 2007 after my vertigo hit I had a VNG/ENG done that showed I had severely reduced responses to the caloric testing. None of my doctors have even commented on that or suggested we investigate further.

      Anyone with a similar experience.

      Never heard of it.

      Can you ask your specialist?

      Hi Rhonda,

      Yes I plan on asking my Neuro whenever I get in to see him. Thanks for replying.:)

      This was a old classic answer to a simple question. The answer is yes.CIDP including being can preceded. CIDP. If you tell this on presentation to any neuro, the answer will be a definative yes.

      I’ve had CIDP since 1987 and yes I repeatedly suffer from Vertigo. I have had 2 xMayo Nero’s and neither said yes to this question. I did not ask them if it was possible but they both had my records and could easily read that this was a reoccurring problem for me.
      So before I talk to either I would appreciate the Name of the Neuro, or those Physicians who know this is possible. Knows ?? Anyone can guess even the most educated/accomplished Physician. I have all the symptoms of an MS patient except Cognitive problems and Scars on the brain. The only other thing I would mention is that I’m 75 years old and lots of stuff pops up for an male at this age.
