Exclusion from cardiac or ear problems
Greetings and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your question. I understand your concern.
Well, Sir, there are two main reasons that can result to this problem, always based on your age. There may be a cardiac problem to this issue (not that it is definitive) which has to be assessed by means of wearing a 24-hour Holter rhythm monitor, to evaluate the heart conduction system "behaviour" spun into 24 hours, to see if there are blocks or difficulties in conduction.
In case that there are pauses or blocks, a pacemaker implantation might be recommended. Of course, this is not a definite situation, I am just offering an opinion in excluding all the heart factors that may bring up to this.
The second culprit that could cause this is the inner ear. The inner ear is the organ that, in normal aging process, may be damaged and, since it is responsible for the balance, may produce these symptoms.
Therefore, I would recommend you to consult a ENT specialist, and consult about the use of Betaserc twice a day, for two weeks, to see if these spells go away.
I hope I was helpful with my answer. I am happy to help, if you have follow-up questions.
