Thank you for writing in.
I understand that you have dizziness and feel nauseated. Do you also have headaches alongwith? If so, it could be related to migraine. Treatment would consist of betahistine (to control dizziness) and ondansetron (to control nausea).
Do you have any ear-related symptoms such as ear pain, reduced hearing, etc?Have you had any ear infection in the past? Ear problems can also lead to dizziness.
Lastly, please get your hemoglobin checked.
Please consult a neurologist/ENT doctor for detailed evaluation. In the meanwhile you could see your GP to get the prescription for relief of symptoms.
I would be pleased to answer if you have any more queries.
Wishing you speedy recovery and good health,

Thank you for getting back with more details.
In view of ear infection in the past, dizziness could be related to that. However, migraine is also a possibility, as headaches, dizziness and nausea could also be due to migraine.
So, as suggested, please consult a neurologist to confirm the diagnosis. The neurologist may also order a brain scan to make sure the ear infection has not spead into the adjacent structures. ENT examination would help us know if the ear infection is still active. In that case, antibiotics would be requierd. If the ear is dry, then only symptomatic treatment is necessary.
As suggested above, please consult your GP to get the prescription drugs to get relief from dizziness and nausea.
