you might be having lightheadedness or dizziness or vertigo also known as benignparoxysmalpositionalvertigo (BPPV) which is an idiopathic condition that originates from the internal ear. You will need to consult an ENT specialist.
I get dizzy when Ilook up down or lay down
This is the hallmark of BenignParoxysmalPositionalVertigo. You need to go to the ER and get particle repositioning done. Its very minor, they just manipulate your head for a minute.
Hello,I had a vertigo and my doctor found that i had a directional vertigo with the help of x-rays report of my neck.will alcohol worsen directional vertigo?
