I am a 20 year old female. For the past three months, I have been experiencing daily headaches, intermittent dizziness and vertigo, tinnitus and light sensitivity. I have received a diagnosis of a vestibular migraine and my neurologist reports down beating nystagmus while using Frenzel goggles and performing the Dix-Hallpike maneuver. My MRI is clear aside from sinusitis and all vestibular testing came back normal. I have just picked up on a very significant symptom that my neurologist is not aware of. In certain lights like fluorescent lights, if I close my eyes about 10-15 seconds, then my eyes begin jerking uncontrollably and my eyelids flutter or open and close uncontrollably. My eyes also move upwards and into my head during this. This lasts for about 10 seconds at a time, whereby it will calm down and start again at some point if my eyes remain closed. This does not happen when I am in a dark room (such as when going to sleep). I had never experienced this before the above symptoms started. I am wondering if this is a form of nystagmus or some seizure.
