Hello, 

I'm new here.  I'm thinking I might have Vestibular Hyperacusis as certain constant sounds are very quickly giving me nausea and dizziness, followed by aural fullness and headache if I have to stay by the noise.  It seems to be pitch based.  

I have done a lot of research but haven't met many people with Vestibular Hyperacusis.  

Can anyone recommend a UK doctor in this area please? 

Thanks

Thanks Rob. does Jacqui deal with vestibular hyperacusis then?

Also, she practises privately but as far as I'm aware does not practice on the NHS. Ideally someone that practises on the NHS too would be good, if this is going to turn into a long term issue.

The condition you are asking about is more commonly known as Tullio's phenomenon.  It is usually a symptom of either superior canal dehiscence or Meniere's syndrome.  Certainly, the NHS has capable neurotologists who would be able to help you.  

Do your symptoms occur only when you are exposed to loud sound, and do you feel as if the room is spinning at those times?  Or do you feel nauseous when exposed to sound that you don't consider to be loud?
