Question: Hi,,, while driving a vehicle sometimes I feel like having headach or light headed or pressure on eyes (I wear number glasses but not always and checked the eyes recently). This happens generally in the morning even after having 7 hours sleep and normal BP (I am on medication for BP and Sugar both).

I had a vertigo problem for almost three to four months from Oct 2018 to XXXXXXX 2019 and I have taken medication as per RX from your expert doctors. Also doing exercise.
