Multiple postings regarding fussy brain syndrome no medical findings...keep up the medical evaluation help by keeping symptom log, provides insight into you.... very hard to explain these type of symptoms...even with the best doctor. Should list symptoms, time day, activity, action taken.

Surprise to many that key issue is vertigo...which can be caused by a wide range sources. My room does not spin, I wobble and have difficulty thinking, talking. While a few days begin this way, it usually is brought on by positions shoveling, standing while looking down reading, cleaning bending up and own.

I have had all the tests no real findings except white matter in pons due to 1954 polio epidemic. Such scaring is common in persons who have had similar viruses that inflame the brain. There are many orthopedic issues such as scoliosis, Arnold Chiari that contribute to motion sickness..

Meclizine commonly used for travel sickness and or vertigo is very effective and can be taken for relief or preventative.is very effective and can be taken as needed. Expensive off rack for sportsmen, travelers at 6.00 for small package. Cheaper asking pharmacist for entire bottle on pharmacy shelf, 12.00 last one I purchased contained 100 pills.

This is not a cure but does work well with chronic issues..

hello, A --

i'm not sure from your post if you are wanting --

-- to start a new discussion in the parkinson's exchange (where we are now), or

-- to find or add to an earlier thread in this exchange on the same topic -- http://forums.webmd.com/3/parkinsons-disease-exchange/forum/431?@guest , or, possibly,

-- to start a new discussion in what is now the neurology exchange.

or maybe all three; this is terribly confusing because altho the earlier thread on this same topic is in this same exchange, it had previously been in a neurological disorders forum before webMD made its most recent format switch.

so -- let me suggest a few options, if i may --

-- if you are wanting to start a new discussion in the parkinson's exchange (where we are now), please keep checking this thread for responses.

-- if you are wanting to find or add to an earlier thread on the same topic, follow the link above, and reply there.

-- if you are wanting to start a new discussion in the neurology exchange, you may want to re-post this inquiry there, http://exchanges.webmd.com/neurology-general-neurology-questions-and-support.

i'm sorry to be so confusing! if this seems too overwhelming, don't do anything, and responses will come here!
