Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. Balance and co-ordination of head, eyes and neck are controlled by cerebellum (back of brain), vestibular system (located in ear) and nerves in the neck. So, shakiness and vertigo could occur with dysfunction of any of the above three structures. So, the two symptoms in your case could be related. A detailed neurological examination would be helpful. An MRI scan of the brain would be useful in excluding an internal brain problem, as a cause for your symptoms. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Brief Answer: Thank you for getting back. Detailed Answer: Thank you for providing more information. Normal brain scan is a good news. Yes, it would be possible to fix both ear and brain problems in your case, if they were found. As of now, it seems to be connected to ear. You could take betahistine tablets for symptom relief. Best wishes, Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
