Superior Canal Dehiscence Syndrome (SCDS) is a rare and recently discovered medical condition that significantly disrupts the lives of its sufferers, and is tremendously difficult to diagnose. It involves the development of a hole in the bone of the skull above the ear canal and below the brain. Typical symptoms include vertigo, autophony, hyperacusis, tullio, tinnitus, low frequency hearing loss, brain fog, fatigue, and oscillopsia.
My name is Brad Riddell, and you can read the convoluted saga of how I was finally diagnosed with a Superior Canal Dehiscence in My SCDS Story. I’m posting updates and reflections as I prepare for and recover from surgery in the Updates Blog. Thanks for taking a look.
