Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question,
I would like to ask you a few questions in order for me to understand your situation better.
Could you please tell me how long you have been having these symptoms?
When you get dizzy, does it feel like a spinning sensation (for example, a room spinning)?
Any changes in vision during these episodes?
Have you had an MRI or CT scan of the head?
Look forward to hearing from you,
About 10 days

Thank you for your reply.
I am sorry I did not get back to you right away. I was logged off when I received your reply.
It sounds that your symptoms are very suggestive of vertigo, which is a problem with an inner ear where a small rock gets dislodged from its normal position causing these symptoms. Vertigo is a transient condition and usually goes away as quickly as it came. There is a medication available over-the-counter called Meclizine. We use it specifically for vertigo. It can be taken once or twice daily (but it can make you sleepy so be careful taking it during the day). Sometimes you may need to take this medication for 2-3 days before the symptoms go away. You also need to drink lots of fluids during this period.
Having said the above, I would still recommend that you see your GP for evaluation and a neurological exam since this is the first time you have had these symptoms. Even though vertigo is the most likely diagnosis, other diagnoses need to be ruled out.
I hope you find this information helpful. Please feel free to follow-up with any other questions you might have.
