Thanks for the query

If all the imaging is normal then he has to go for CV doppler and ECHO to rule out heart conditions which might be leading to vertigo.
Also please see that he taking Tab vertin 16 mg three times daily, Tab stugeron forte twice daily for 7 days

The other possibility is that u can get him a hearing aid so that it will reduce his vertigo due to sensori neural deafness

Have a healthy living
