Brief Answer:
Complaints sould desappear soon

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

Sometimes people have such complaints after blood pressure is regulated. In this case your complaints should disappear during couple of days, if not, I would advise you to have carotid ultrasound done.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health

I had an episode of veritigo a little over a year ago. It feels similar but things aren't spinning. Just feels like my head is swimming with just the slightest movement of my head.

Welcome back

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

Such complaints may be related to spine problems as well. Also carotid duplex ultrasound should be performed if your symptoms don't disappear during couple of days.
So, in case your symptoms continue, I would advise you to see your doctor to perform examinations to find out the exact cause.

Take care
