Hi Terry,

Thank you for posting your query.

Most likely, you are suffering from post-traumatic vertigo. In this condition, after a head injury, dizziness occurs. It may come in episodes. It is not a serious illness, so, there is no need to worry.

These symptoms improve over time and may resolve completely within a few weeks.

For symptom relief, you may use betahistine tablets.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
