Hi. Sorry, I had to spend time with my Wife....without the computer around....I'm sure you can understand :o)
Thanks for the extra information. I do not believe that your ocular soreness has anything to do with your vertigo. I think the first person you should talk to would be your primary care MD. She may want to send you to an ENT physician as they are specialists in vertigo.
I also don't think that head exercises are going to solve your symptoms as vertigo can be caused by such a large number of issues that it is important to thoroughly examine you to get to the root cause.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
