Does alcohol and smoke cause vertigo, dizziness and nausea?

My daughter recently was diagnosed with vertigo. She had an episode of dizziness and nausea. Her doctor recommended some exercises and said it was caused by an inner ear infection (minerals crystalize), can this be caused due to dehydration and she did go to a cigar lounge several nights ago and had a few glasses of wine. Does alcohol and smoke cause these symptoms?

Ok, if a chemical of any sort caused vertigo, when the chemical went away so would the symptoms. So, not very likely.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
