Vertigo / dizziness

Hi Everybody -- my mother's been having a lot of trouble with vertigo in the past 3-4 weeks. She finished the cycles of Gemzar+platin at the end of September, so we were hoping that the vertigo would go away on its own, but it's actually gotten worse. She's fallen twice in two weeks, with stitches and a broken finger and lots of bruises -- this from a woman who could easily blow me away in a power pump aerobics class two years ago. The doctors are playing hot-potato with her, passing her from oncologist to opthamologist to neurologist with no one able to figure out what's wrong.

Sounds familiar to anyone? any advice or ideas?

Good wishes for all of you--
MFDM
