Vertigo

Hello everyone and hope all are well!  I've been on Sutent since December, completed 2 rounds and just started my third round yesterday 3/6/19.  Had scans done on Monday and they showed a 25% shrink of my tumors on the adrenal glan and lungs.  They are going to continue the Sutent as it is working at this point.  One thing that has started happening for the past 4 days now, I've had bouts of vertigo.   Sometimes it's minor, other times its bad enough it makes me want to fall over.  Anyone have experience with this?

thanks,

Chris

I have had some vertigo issues not related to RCC. Look into being evaluated by an ENT,  Nuerologist and Cardiologist. Medications and low blood oressure could be factors. If tou feel weak do not get up until the vertigo passes.

They have me scheduled for a brain MRI soon.  We'll see what happens with that I guess.

VNG and Eng testing as well.

Sometimes it can be caused by food allergies.

Mine was caused by plain old "ear rocks".  Small calcifications within the ear that bend the cilia (hair like substance) and tell you that you are not balanced.  MD referred me to a Physical Therapist trained to perform the Epley Manuever.  And you can be taught how to do it at home.  It got rid of mine and I've had to do it a couple of times at home.

It is a horrible sensation to feel that that the world is whirling around you.

Get a referral and see if this is the simple cure.

Good Luck,

---my VNG, I was referred to a Physical Therapist who specialized in Vistibular therapy which sounds like what donna-lee is referring to.

Yep, same for me as Donna -- Ear rocks and the Epley Manuever.
