Vertigo after being slapped. Related?

I like sex to be a little rough every now and then, so I told my boyfriend to slap me. He slapped me a little harder than I had anticipated (I had a couple of red welts on my temple), and even though I felt totally fine the rest of the night, the next day I ve been plagued by random bouts of vertigo that only occur when changing my head position or standing up too quickly... Could the two be related even though the vertigo didn t occur until the next day? Do I need to go to a doctor right away in case something is seriously wrong or would it be generally safe to assume waiting a few days to see if it clears up would be okay?

Thanks for writing your quuery.

You might be suffering from Benign Positional Vertigo.
Our ears have a system which help in balance of our body through biochemical process.
It might be a possibility that due to tight slapping, there has occured some changes in the internal ear resulting in disturbance in the normal mechanism leading to feeling of vertigo.

You give complete rest to yourself.
Taking Betahistine 8 mg thrice a day will be helpful in curing your symptoms.

If your problem persists, get yourself examined by an ENT specialist.

I hope this is helpful to you.
