Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
The inner ear is the organ of balance and it may be involved in an inflammation or may be affected by decreased blood flow. The inflammation usually occurs with cold or upper respiratory infection. Cervical spondylosis or diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure or cholesterol abnormalities leading to atherosclerosis are the common causes for decreased blood flow. The eye give a good support to the ear in maitaining good balance.Your symptoms of unsteadiness is worse in the morning and evening because with the decrease in light , the ears have to play a bigger role.
Tiredness, sleepiness and being less alert may occur if the cause is an infection.
Bed rest with a thin or no pillow and minimal neck movements along with plenty of warm fluids and wholesome food may be sufficient.
If these measures are not helping then you may require medicines like Betaserc and it would be better that you have yourself examined by a doctor and investigated if necessary.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.

Tinnitus

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the info.
It is tinnitus and is related to the inner ear. It can occur with an a short lived infection or can be long term if it is related to blood flow issues. Blood flow issues are common with cervical spondylosis related to wear and tear.
Some of my patients improve with Ginkgo biloba preparations.

Hi, I'm 24 yrs old male with a height of 168 cms and weight of 78 kilos. For the last 2 months i've been having a constant ringing noise in both my ears. Its noticiable only during the absence of external sounds. Its more like a low pitch ringing. My work environment is noise free one completely air conditioned. I've had a hearing test for any loss in hearing and it was negative. I've been taking a course of multi vitamin tablets along with Ginkgo biloba for a while now, but there's no improvement.

Hi Doctor , I am 23 years old .
I am having a little trouble with my intestinal , the POO ( waste that discharge from our body) has become in darker color recently due to I eat more meat than vegetable. In this case what should I do to make fix of this problem ?
I am having a chewable Multivitamin/Mineral Supplement daily for every lunch time.
Beside I am planning to have Omega 3 and Ginkgo Biloba 120mg inserted as my daily supplement.
From the test I made ( all of the test were taken after lunch time ) in using each 1 of the 3 supplements , I found that those of them got their side effects seen accordingly.
1 : Chewable Multivitamin/Mineral --> My sex health has improved.
2 : Omega 3 : I got stomach upset with burping the fish oil after 1 or 2 hours taking it.
3 : Ginkgo Biloba with Vinpocetine : I become more Alert but with also often do dreaming as after I've slept for 5 hours of my full sleep 6 hours .
To this matter , how should i take these three essential supplements in time order without overacting the effectiveness of the supplements.
Regards
Tito
