Detailed Answer:
Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

At times, deficiency of vitamins and/or rare minerals may be responsible.
Try any Over The Counter multivitamin + mineral tablet…

It may / mat be – related to the pressure… The range for the upper figure (Systolic) is 90 to 140 mm Hg. The range for the lower figure (Diastolic) is 60 to 90 mm Hg.

Ear is often the cause of dizziness. Balancing mechanism is in the inner ear. There are several causes – simple like wax blocking the outer ear or something else inside… See an ENT specialist / get examined; investigated…
If persistent, see a neurologist – MRI and/or MRA may be needed to assess the structure and blood flow…
Prognosis is generally good in such situations…      

Good luck
God bless you

Hi I am a 33 yr old male; I had an attack of vertigo almost three weeks back. I went to ER where they said it s Vestibular neuritis and I was put on 8mg Serc and 5mg Stematil. I took the meds for 5 days and was apparently fine. On the 8th day had this nausea with a little wobbly feeling; consulted a local doc and he started me on 16mg Serc for 5 days. The moment I took 16mg my head had this fullness feeling and my head was almost always wobbly. 5 days after I went to Neurology and they said my neurological exam was fine but I should take 5mg stem and 8mg serc for 7 days. The next day I consulted an ENT Surgeon and he said it s Viral Labyrinthitis and that I should be fine by the end of the present medicinal course. But even though I am taking the meds, my head still feels wobbly and have this occasional nauseated feeling. I am very concerned as I have to travel in a month and my symptoms does not seem to be getting any better. An advice is much appreciated.
