how old are you?

I am sorry you are having dizziness and vertigo symptoms

why do you think you have vascular vertigo?

do you have symptoms of allergy, stuffy nose, fluid in the ear, ear pain which can cause dizziness?

you can try the epley maneuver which can help some patients with vertigo symptoms

Fluid in my ear stuffy nose my Dr yesterday told me I have an infection in my throat on amoxicillin now
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

I see.

stuffy ears sounds like fluid in the inner ear which can cause dizziness.

medications like benadryl 25-50mg and Sudafed can help decrease mucus and fluid from viral infections which can help

make sure you take the amoxicillin with food in your stomach

you should take a probiotic pill at other times of the day to help prevent diarrhea from amoxicillin

you can try to yawn and thrust your lower jaw forward at the same time to help open up your throat to help open up your eustachian tube to help drain fluid out of your inner ear into your sinuses . this can take some practice to do.
