Suggest treatment for vertigo

I am having on-going Vertigo like issues for a week now, my GP saw me last Friday and ordered blood work to check vitamin levels and for Diabetes ( I am in great physical condition and a healthy diet). I had these symptoms 4 years ago and it went away,; however, now it has come back more severe. If blood work comes back ok, should the next logical step be to see an ears, nose, and throat specialist? I am 50 years old with no current health conditions.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have have problem of vertigo . Well your doctor has ordered right tests . There can be many reasons for vertigo like diabetic condition , weakness , ear infection , meniere's disease or acoustic neuroma . I would suggest you to consult ENT specialist if your blood work comes to be normal . Doctor may order test like rotatory chair test , audiometery test , prong test , CT scan and examination with otoscope . Doctor may prescribe antiemetic drug , antibiotics along with anti inflammatory . For now take proper rest , do not bend forward and do light exercise .

Hope your concern has been resolved.
