Suggest treatment for severe hearing loss, vomiting and vertigo

Need a neurologist opinion. My son 47 work up 5 weeks a go with severe dizziness and loss of balance Which in turn caused vomiting. Has severe dizziness, whooshing in ear along with sounds of cricket. Went to hospital and was admitted for 4 days. They did MRI and CAT scan and thought he had vertigo. Primary doctor scheduled therapy which didn t help. Went to ENT today and he said he has a good deal of hearing loss in left ear. That is issue for a neurologist issue not ENT. Now more time going by trying to get an appointment with neurologist. Also he is a diabetic since 6 years old. Any help will be appreciated

General Surgeon 's  Response

•     Vertigo is a symptom, rather than a condition itself and treatment depends on the rught cause. You should see your GP if you have persistent signs of vertigo or it keeps coming back.

Causes of vertigo may include: benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, migraines

– severe headaches, labyrinthitis
– an inner ear infection.

Medicines, such as prochlorperazine and some antihistamines, can help in the early stages or most cases of vertigo.

Also, we recommend: do simple exercises to correct your symptoms, sleep with your head slightly raised on two or more pillows, avoid bending down to pick up items, avoid extending your neck – for example, while reaching up to a high shelf.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
