What is going on with my brain/eyes - Anyone know the medical term?

I haven't been diagnosed with chronic fatigue... I do have autoimmune graves thyroid disease. My brain often times feels like it's asleep. This is only super bothersome to me when I drive.

When I get on the interstate and get to speeds of 50 to 60+ it feels like my brain can not keep up with what my eyes are seeing. It feels like everything is coming at me all at once. Sometimes it feels like I am sitting still while everything is moving towards me, which technically it is lol, but it's like my brain doesn't realize I am in the car.

I was diagnosed with vestibular damage in both ears, but had been doing vestibular rehabilitation therapy and it hasn't helped me with the driving part.

I do not get dizzy when I am sitting at a red light and cars pass by... nothing like that bothers me. It is only when I am driving... going forward. Even sometimes at home I feel funny when I am walking.

Thanks for any help on this. I have had mystery problems since 2006, but this stuff has been around for about a year. The other stuff I experience is increased after images and static in my vision.

Thanks,
Candi

Hi Candi

I think it is vital to inform the doctor that referred you to therapy of this driving problem. You may need a different type of vestibular therapy. I've had the vestibular rehab therapy for BPPV. The second time I had it, it was a wait and see, and it only got worse and the vertigo was really bad, so I was sent for therapy and it took a while that day, but it was resolved.
