I could've rented this from a public library Sep 11, 2009
I was in a car accident in 2004 and suffered a major whiplash injury. This whiplash injury left me with several symptoms including Cervical Vertigo. I've had this stupid debilitating condition for close to six years now and have been trying to find ways of getting this fixed. I've had numerous tests done and was a guinea pig for medications that either knocked me out or made me more uncoordinated than I already was. Besides searching on the internet for answers I needed other resources and came across this book. My guess is this doctor only dealt with the basics of people who battle bouts of dizziness. I do have to admit that I did find a test that I haven't taken yet. A Fistula test. I came across Perilymph Fistula and it described EVERY symptom that's been going on with me. I nearly cried. After going through this and trying to explain everything that's going on with me Perilymph Fistula describes everything. If I hadn't come across this book I wouldn't have known about these two terms. Hopefully I will be able to get this test done to prove it's what I have and get it fixed. Then I will be able to get my life back!!!
