He sent me to an ear nose and throat
specialist who could only rule out inner ear infection
, not inner ear imbalance. I was then sent to the UPMC Balance Clinic in Pittsburgh, PA for vertigo testing and they found calcium deposits in my inner right ear were misplaced (this is where the term 'rocks loose in your head' comes from). After less than 15min of treatment my vertigo, balance, sense of spinning, and major dizziness were gone. I had my decompression surgery April 6, 2009.
