Possibility of having vertigo due to the symptoms observed

Hello! I ve had vertigo symptoms lasting a month now, and my prescribed Meclizine has not had much effect. I stopped taking it maybe a week ago and now my poop has turned bright green. Other minor symptoms include ringing in ears, vomiting under stress, random but few hot flashes, and increased soreness in my back, around the shoulder blades and from my neck all the way down. I went to my doctor to address the vertigo and anxiety but she gave me Meclizine and instructed me toapply Epley s maneuver. I ccan t afford to see any more doctors... help!

If meclizine is not working for your vertigo ... I think you should start Betahistidine ... usually comes undeundee brand name Serc ... 8mg twice daily ... if still doesn't work, u can increase the dose up to 16mg twice daily .... the type of disease u are describing are symptoms of either BPV ...benign positional vertigo, or Minier's disease ... I recommend an ENT specialist consultation for ur condition.
