While the side that produces symptoms is usually the hypoactive side, these findings may also be a demonstration of the vestibular equivalent of auditory recruitment, and therefore the spontaneous nystagmus would be consistent with the side of an irritative lesion. The caloric test results did reveal the mismatched vestibular information that was emanating from the inner ears, and it explained this patient's symptoms.
However, the most accepted theory is the convergence projection theory which states that multiple nerves converge onto a single shared neural pathway with the CNS unable to differentiate the origin of stimulation.2,3 Irritative lesions in the areas supplied by these nerves such as the neck, nose and paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx, oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx and larynx may also cause pain in the ear.
