Thanks for the query

I would like to know a few more details in order to come to a better conclusion

1. Are you on any medications apart from vit d and Pepcid, please mention them
2. Does the dizziness last through out the day? What makes the dizziness worse?
3. Have you had cold,cough, or flu recently?
4. Did you notice any problem hearing recently?

The only other medication i am taking is Omega 3

Question 2:
The dizziness is new to me. It may last 10 - 30 mins (today it was about 30 mins). I began after 11am, and i had just finsihed eating a nutri grain bar. On previous occasions after eating the bar I would burpe alot.....
I am still burping without the dizziness. The burping is mild at this time. Sometime I feel as if i am sleep deprived (I sleep about 7 hrs/ngt)

Question 3:
No cold ....etc

Question 4:
There is an odd sensation in my ear, but i dont think i have a problem hearing! It seems as if water went into my ear.....

Question 5:
No vision issues

Thanks for replying

After going through the reply you have given me it looks like you are suffering from infection of the inner ear. It is usually caused by a virus and most of the times it is self limiting. The burping could be because of the heart burn
You doctor has prescribed the right medication of the heart burn but nothing for the dizziness.Drugs like betahistadine is ideal for dizziness because of inner ear.
. I recommend you to approach an ENT specialist for a quick examination and a prescription

I hope I have answered your query, if you have any further queries I will be happy to get back to you

I wish you a speedy recovery
