How to treat vertigo?

Road, authorities, stopped me driving, just because I took easy to turn right because of not busy traffic, and crossed white line, that was all, not intentionally, to meet with an accident. Now, I am having nasty falls because my walking is not stable due to vetrtigo. from Sal. Can you advice me about this physical problem.

Hi, welcome to our site. I am Dr Saumya Mittal, MD.
Read your query. That is a very significant question and i appreciate your problem. I will try my best to answer your query

In view of the symptoms starting after an accident, I would really suggest testing a MRI of the brain to make sure there is no intracranial damage. The fall may have caused damage to any of the many parts that may have caused the symptoms of vertigo, especially brainstem and cerebellum.

I would suggest a visit to a neurologist along with the MRI to make sure there is no elicitable sign and thereafter a possible prescription of betahistidine and physiotherapy may help you.

I hope this helps you. Inform the reports mentioned above/if any other so I can be of help further.
I have given you the answer to the maximum considering the information provided. The results of the tests could further enhance my answer to you. You can upload them on the site.
