Customer Question
I have had vertigo...

I have had vertigo several times in the last 4 years. Sometimes it lasts 2-3, but my last episode has lasted 9 days, with a little improvement each day. My neurologist just smiles at me when I ask her about it and says we don't know why. I need help.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, several times, I take levothroid,zoloft,losartan, hydrochorothiazide,atenolol,aloarvastain, plavix

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

I have had 2 TIA s

What medications have you tried for the vertigo?

I don't think your vertigo is anything serious or a signs of anything like a stroke or a TIA.

However, having vertigo is quite miserable.

Is this the kind that's worse with head movement or is it unaffected by head movement and just constant and persistent daily for those last 9 days?

Otherwise I hope I provided you with a 5-star service.
