Brief Answer:
Can be related to the inner ear.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for query.

Dizziness has many possible causes, including inner ear disturbance. The sense of balance depends on the combined input from the various parts of your sensory system. Then there are your Eyes, which help you determine where your body is in space and how it's moving. Sensory nerves, which send messages to your brain about body movements and positions and third is the Inner ear, which houses sensors that help detect gravity and back-and-forth motion.

As your dizziness is recurrent from few month few tests should be done to rule out inner ear involvement:

Audiometry pure tone.
Caloric test of the inner ear.
Rinne's test.

These are few basic tests and should be done initially.

Treatment suggested,
Tab Stemetil 5 mg twice daily would provide relief from vertigo.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks!

Have dull pain on right flank side along the same horizontal axis of the belly button. Pain isn t constant but comes and goes as I walk or laugh and pain gets strong enough to cause me to bend down in an effort to minimize it....which works. The pain is like a punch and doesn t travel to leg.....just stays in right side.

Hi, I have been having trouble with my bowels for years, and I have seen many specialists. The only thing that was ever found is a non-specific colitis a year ago. However, I keep on having lots of nagging pain on my left side, and some days an intense shooting pain in the back, in the area of my kidneys. Do you have any idea what this could be?
