Detailed Answer:

Hi,


I had gone through your question and understand your concerns that you are having dizzyness.


Based on your clinical details, it appears to be BPPV (benign paroxymal positional vertigo) with orthostatic hypotension.

Answers and solutions for your queries.


1. Re- consult your ent surgeon ( for Ent monoever - epiley's - treatment of choice in BPPV) and vestibuar rehabilitation exercises.

2. Orthostatic hypotension- dizzyness occurs during standing up from sitting posture.It also occurs in hypertensive patients.

3. Slowly getting up from sitting, compression bandages, waight loss, stretching exercises, taking plenty of water and fluids.

Kindly discuss about this instructions and treatment options with your treating doctor.
