MdDS is comprised of primary as well as secondary, or accompanying symptoms. The uniqueness of MdDS is that the set of symptoms and the strength of each symptom varies from patient to patient. A patient can have only primary, or both primary and secondary symptoms. The particular secondary symptoms and their strengths may also vary.
A distinct signature of MdDS is persistent:
Some patients report these sensations while their posture remains stable. Depending on the strength of these symptoms and the duration of MdDS, these symptoms can be experienced when sitting, standing, or lying down. Sensations during walking vary, but are frequently reported as:
A common variation of two types of walking is the sensation that with every step, your feet hit the floor earlier or later than expected. This sensation can be similar or different for your left and right foot.
Apart from the primary motion feelings, there are a number disturbing symptoms reported. They are cognitive dysfunction, spatial disorientation, wooziness, headache, head pressure, ear pressure, visual intolerance, insomnia, fatigue, queasy, panicking, stress and depression.
MdDS symptoms can be aggravated/reversed by visually exposing to busy patterns, crowds, confined spaces, computer or cell phone scrolling. We are recently implementing a protocol that would reduce the visual susceptibility for the prevention of a reversion of symptoms.
