What causes dizziness, nausea and vomiting?
Then, three days ago, it started again. I still had some of the Vertigo meds, and restarted taking them. I did not need the nausea meds.
I'm feeling better, now, but wonder if I should go see my doctor....
most commonly due to inner ear causes
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Though you are feeling better then you should go to see your doctor for an assessment to see if the cause can be found.
Vertigo is most common due to conditions of the inner ear such as BPPV, meniere's disease and vestibular neuronitis though there are also other causes.
Menieres's is not likely because it is generally associated with tinnitus (abnormal noises in the ear) and hearing loss.
Vestibular neuronitis tends to cause vertigo that lasts for hours at a time.
It may be BPPV which stands for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. There are certain examination techniques that can be done to determine if this is present and Epley maneuver can be done as a form of treatment.
If none of these are not thought to be possible based on symptoms and examination then you may need imaging to take a look at the brain.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
Thanks. It appears to be worse first think in the morning. By early afternoon, I feel fairly normal. How long does it last?
depends on cause
The time frame can vary from days to weeks or longer depending on the cause.
One of my patients had a few episodes every few weeks, this occurred for years. He had recurrent episodes of the BPPV.
Others may get only one episode and nerve again
Meniere's can be lifelong
Vestibular neurontitis may last days to weeks then regress
Your ENT doctor or neurologist would be able to determine which is present
Please feel free to ask anything else
