Head shaking?

Ok this is an old thread but I just searched for what could possibly be happening to my mare and found this and it is exactly what's been going on since last night!! Anyone have a clue what it could be?

So did you ever figure out what it was with your horse?? I read that thread but seems like the vet could never even figure it out?

The vet never diagosed anything, but we self-diagnosed as Equine Headshaking Syndrome (trigeminal nerve problem, or whatever, as it's still not entirely understood), as many owners are having to do. The pantyhose "cured" him, and when the middle of summer hit, he stopped doing it altogether. I imagine it will pick back up in the spring. They say it's a seasonal thing.

A recent manifestation could definitely have a different cause. An ear infection or something else is certainly possible.

Well went there tonight and she's no longer doing it so hopefully it was just a fluke thing!
