In the presence of vertigo , best pain relief medication are NSAID like Tab Advil twice a day .

As use of pain killers like Tramadaol , or Opiod analgesics will worse vertigo .

So please get Advil .

But during labor??? Is there anything better than advil that can be used? I don't think advil will help during labor Lol.
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 year ago.

Ok during Labor it would be ideal to go for Spinal injection , this will best as you are not candidate for Opioid analgesic so spinal injection is best option .

Discuss this option with your Gynecologist

Is the epidural the same thing as a spinal? Would an epidural with fetanyl be safe for someone with vertigo?
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 year ago.

I think you should go for that .
