Hi,

For your dizziness, you should check your blood pressure and random blood sugar first.

If they come normally than rule out Otological inner ear infection causes by Otoscopy and related ear examination.

If still no cause evident than EKG can be done. Maintain hydration with lots of water. Meanwhile you can be prescribed betahistine for dizziness.

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

Take care

Hello,

How old are you? You may be suffering from acute BPPV probably.

Other possibilities like acute labyrinthitis or vestibular neuronitis or hypotension or posterior circulation insufficiency etc.

Use tablet Vertin 16 thrice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your ENT specialist/neuro physician they will examine and treat you accordingly.

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

Take care
