Vertigo issue after FUT hair transplant

Seven months ago i got my hair transplant surgery with FUT technique. Immediately after 5 days i started feeling off balance issue. Earlier i through it is just weakness but after struggling for one month i decided to go for neurologist check and he concluded it as otolith dyfunc. It has been almost 8 months now i am still struggling from off balance. But i am not facing any kind of Vertigo strokes, off balance is with me when every i walk. I am 28 yrs old and doing rehab exercise as suggested but i m not seeing better improvement. It is impacting my daily life. Please help me out because i m struggling from 8 months.

Hi and welcome,

Your question has landed in the MS community and what you are diagnosed with is not the same type of vertigo that's usually associated with neurological conditions like MS. What you've been diaognosed with is a lot more common and to do with an inner ear issue and not brain lesions as is the case when the vertigo is caused by MS.

You've been looking for an answers for a long time and posted various pieces of information on where you've been to for help....

"dec 24 2019 I m facing same kind of issue after my FUT hair transplant from almost three months. I have consulted my hair transplant surgeon but he is saying it is impossible. After that i have gone to neurologist. Even they are not able to understand my condition. I have consulted almost 5 neurologist but no results. Now, what should I do now?

Yes, i have also consulted ENT surgery and after his eximination he declared me fit. I just wonder is some kind of side effect of FUThair transplant.

My doctor has given me diamox 250mg. I feel these sensation while walking, crossing road and moving my head up and down.

According to neurologist hair transplant surgery has not such impact. But i am facing this issue day after surgery and is still lasting. I m worried because it is impacting my personal as well as professional life. I m just push myself to work. Please guide me some more suggestions.

Otilathi disorder

Five months ago i have gone through FUT hair transplant surgery. After 3 days i started feeling imbalance while walking with vomit daily for one month. It seems that things around me is revolving when i walk. I am not able to understand my situation. Before surgery i didn't have any such issue. I was physically fit. But now, i am worried is this issue is permanent and will remain for ever. My ENT doctor has conducted some test and concluded otolith disorder but is not able to explain in detail. She did some manupltion of my head but at that time i did not feel any spinning issue.

Can FUT hair transplant lead to vertigo disorder..?

After 3days of surgery by FUT method. I started feeling imbalance while walking. Earlier i was thinking that it is just weakness. But when my condition didn't improved i consulted Doctor which concluded that i m suffering from peripheral vertigo disorder. Before surgery i didn't have any such issue.

It has been almost 6 months but still, I am facing vertigo disorder issues. I have consulted ENT doctor and he prescribed me some medicines like Inderal LA 40 mg and Clonifit .25 MD along with some Vestibular rehab exercises. But it is not improving my condition.

.....slightly differring infomation over time which can happen but things worth considering is the possibility of misdiagnosis and or inappropriate treatment for the condition you were eventually diagnosed with and the benefits of a second opinion, with related testing and additional psychological support to help you cope with this continuing situation.

You probably should accept what everyone is telling you about there not being a logical association to your hair transplant proceedure and what's happened to you, it is most likely just one of those weird timing coincidences and not the causation you are assumming it is.
