Answered by Dr. Indranil Ghosh 24 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Yes this looks like vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

I understand your concerns. It indeed appears to be vertigo. We can wait for 1 week before further evaluation. Hope blood pressure and blood sugars are ok.

For immediate control of vertigo, we usually advise betahistine or cinnarizine. You can discuss with your physician regarding above.

Hope this helps.

I have had dizziness for three weeks. I can't go out alone for fearing of falling. My symptoms came on quickly the dizziness is not spinning but as if the floor is moving up and down and my lower legs feel like jelly and I actually fall forward. This happens all day. I'm ok when lying down, My doctor first prescribed betahistine Dihydrochloride which had no effect and has now prescribed cinnarizine tablets but these appear to be for Meniere's disease although I don't have nausea or buzzing in ears. I am desperate for this to go away. I have also developed a painful boil and wonder if this is a side effect of the tablets. Thanks

I take 16 mg of betahistine 3x daily for Ménière s disease . I have started getting localized headaches on my left side of my head... Coughing , sneezing and bending over without keeping my head up make it worse. Just worried it could be something worse than the meds.
