    Suggest treatment for vertigo

Posted on Mon, 10 Jul 2017 in Ear, Nose and Throat Problems
Question: I believe I have vertigo. The other day it was so severe, I thought my brain was dying and I felt like I was seeing through beer goggles. Should I see a doctor or go to the ER? Or if there is something I can do from home? I dont have health insurance and just starting a business. So the cheaper the better.

Please tell me for how long are you having these symptoms?
Are you having any hearing difficulty also?

I believe it started about 10 months ago. It would only last about 10 mins or so and now its getting more frequent. Yesterday, I was nauseous.
I dont think its affecting my hearing.
And yes, I just looked down at my phone and got dizzy.
When I was in a meeting the other day, people looked weird like I was looking through beer goggles. (Best way to describe it) I had to go lay down from panic!
