Hi Mr Bheemreddy,

Thank you for posting your query on Healthcare magic.

Based on your symptoms, the most likely cause of your symptoms is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Please do not get scared looking at this big name, as this can be well treated with medications.

BPPV is due to a minor problem in semicircular canals (in ear).

The symptoms of giddiness get aggravated with movements of head and neck in this condition.

For relief of symptoms, betahistine is helpful.

To get fully well, and prevent its recurrence, certain exercises (vestibular rehabilitation exercises) are helpful. This can be learnt under the guidance of a physiotherapist.

I hope it helps.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
