Doctor :   this is not concerning the BP
Doctor :   this is totally different condition and is seen more commonly in women
User :   Yes in my opinion. BP is not the problem
Doctor :   there is nothing to be worried about BP here,
Doctor :   the way forward, is consult a ENT doc, who will see if there is any wax , or any infection in the ear
Doctor :   since your hearing is less, the most common cause could be wax in the ear
Doctor :   if thats not the condtion, the Diagnosis, BPPV, can be treated symptomatically as well
