    Not at all sure of the value of this.

    Well, my first ME symptom was an acute attack of "vertigo," and balance problems continued to be a major symptom for years afterward. Still, it's going to take a whole lot of convincing for me to accept that all the subsequent symptoms were just downstream effects from a problem of the vestibular system.

    It sounds crazy, but is it crazy enough to be true?

    I too had dizziness/vertigo and which was given label "Labyrinthitis" years ago?

    I'm desperate enough to have a look?!

    "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no." - Betteridge's law of headlines. I suspect this applies here as well.

    BPPV was my initial ME viral onset 28 years ago. I still experience it on and off for many years.

    One of the names of ME was epidemic vertigo.

    I assume by "with a history of trauma" they mean something along the lines of a physical injury, like a blow to the head or some other kinetic force on the body. I really don't recall experiencing anything like that in the months prior to onset - and it's the kind of thing that I, or my neurologist, would have been suspicious of at the time. I certainly don't remember any major accident.

    And assuming they are talking about physical trauma/injury leading to vestibular problems (which can happen), how do they explain the "epidemics"?
