Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
Yes, if the diagnosis of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is correct then a simple OPD procedure to correct BPPV can be done and the dizziness controlled. Please do consult your ENT specialist.

I was wondering if my blood pressure is something to be worried about. I have been taking it for the past week or so and it has been ranging from around 86/44 to 92/58. I am sometimes dizzy and lightheaded when standing (I have sort of blacked out for a second and had to grab the wall. That was a while ago, though). I also have sort of poor circulation (cold feet and hands). Is this something to worry about and ask my doctor or is it something normal?

My girlfriend who is 62 this July, weighs 120 is 5 8 , and is recently suffering from severe vertigo and sudden hearing loss. Also, she exercises several times daily prior to this developement and drinks beet juice twice or three times daily for better energy. She lives in Mexico and her docs there are suggesting meniere s disease. Could there be a relationship between her 3+ month of beet juice consumption daily and the vertigo and sudden onset hearing loss?
