Hello. His most likely problem is called BPPV, benign paroxysmal and positional vertigo. He needs to not make any sudden head movements and to look at a distance to fixate his vision on an object in order to get stability in his environment. Does he have ringing in his ears, any ear complaints, fullness or pain. Any sinus problems? In order to put his vestibular system at rest, his best postion is in bed with his head elevated approx. 30 degrees, so if his symptoms are severe, that is the recommendation. He may need medications, etc. Get back to me to discuss, can he see his doctor? Dr Frank

Hello. Blood pressure is two numbers like 120/80. by 53 do you mean pulse?

Expert:  Dr. Frank replied 11 months ago.

If his palpable blood pressure is 53, then he needs to go to the ER, (you need to call 911) Dr Frank
