Severe vertigo. Had lymph nodes removed from arms. Are these related?

My wife has had most of the lymph nodes in her arms removed over 10 years ago. She has been suffering from extreme vertigo for the past 5 months. She has gotten better but has reached a stage that it does not seem to improve. Is there a possible relationship between her Vertigo and the absents of lymph nodes. YYYY@YYYY

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There is no known link between the lymph nodes and vertigo.

Vertigo is most commonly related to conditions of the inner ear,though they are other possible causes.
In terms of the inner ear, the most common causes are: (1) benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (bppv) - the vertigo episodes lasts for a few seconds and vary with the position of the head

(2)meniere's disease- episodes of vertigo lasts for minutes to hours, may be associated with tinnitus and hearing loss

(3)vestibular neuronitis- the episodes lasts for days at a time

Your wife may want to consider visiting an ENT specialist for assessment.

I hope this helps
