I have just finished...

I have just finished a course of antibiotics for laryngitis. I have a dull headache and have had dizziness for a few days now.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

The I didn't really notice the headache til this morning I tried messaging my head and it was like a dull headache in the roof of my head. The dizziness has been constant especially when I lean back

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have suffered from vertigo in the past just worried as quite off balance atm

The headache and dizziness is most likely associated with the same infection as in your larynx that most likely affected inner ear as well which is responsible for maintaining balance and results in dizziness on movement while infected. Since you have already finished antibiotic course, i would recommend you to wait and watch for 2 to 3 days as it takes a while while improving all the symptoms and if it does not improve then you should get your ears examined by the doctor as a followup.

Hope this helps.

Thankyou that would make sense as didn't feel quite right behind the ears. I had the antibiotics for 10 days and finished them this morning. Didn't realise it would take a little longer.

My pleasure.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
