Naming your own nystagmus
would be close to impossible and I do not recommend trying if you have not been trained in evaluating nystagmus. You cannot see your own nystagmus because when nystagmus is present, you feel spinning. One way you could see your own nystagmus is to have someone take a video of your eyes while you are having a spell. If you took the video to your health care provider they may be able to better determine why you are dizzy. Sometimes, a health care provider trained in vestibular rehab can know which direction your eyes are beating based upon the direction in which you feel spinning.
