Customer Question
My husband has liver...

My husband has liver disease, diabetes, afib. For two days has severe nausea, dizziness whenever he sits up. No fever but complains with his ears itching deep could this be vertigo?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?

No fever no respiratory congestion

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

Had fluid built up but I gave extra water pill last night and he released a lot of fluid over the past 12 hours.

The symptoms he has are not very specific; they can range from a simple viral illness affecting the ear canals (which can give rise to nausea, dizziness, and vertigo) to cerebrovascular insufficiency (impaired blood flow to brain; passage of clots to the brain).

Another possibility is of electrolyte imbalance, such as low sodium levels which can happen in advanced liver disease itself and also be use of water pills.

I think in the background of Diabetes and Atrial Fibrillation, these kind of symptoms should not be ta***** *****ghtly and require an evaluation in terms of a comprehensive clinical examination aided by tests (like electrolyte levels, CBC). If needed, brain imaging can also be performed but whether or not it is needed depends upon clinical findings on examination.

I would have him evaluated soon, preferably in ER to make sure he gets prompt care in time.

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.
