What could constant dizziness indicate, heart and ear check up came clear?

Recently, I have been suffering from almost constant dizziness/head spinning, to the point where I fall over. I went to the doctors a couple times and they checked my heart rate and pulse, My heart rate was higher, but I had a perfect pulse. They also checked my ears for any inner ear infections, which could potentially cause the dizziness, but there was nothing. Im waiting to get on the waiting list for a neurologist, but thats still a couple months away. Me and my mom were thinking that why would they check my heart rate and pulse when Im not dizzy, cause it would obviously be fine, so, this morning about 15-20 minutes ago, I checked my pulse for a straight minute, and it was 112. What do I do?

Hi,

First of all the higher heart rate can point to a problem in your heart. So, you need some investigations such as: Echo on your heart to know the ejection fraction. The normal value of the ejection fraction is 52-70.

When the effectiveness of the heart muscle decreases, the autonomic nervous system compensates this deficiency by increasing the heart rate. You should measure your blood pressure and your lipid profile.

Finally, you should change your lifestyle, for example stop smoking, eating fat-rich diet and you should decrease the salt intake.

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

Regards,
Dr. Mustafa, Neurologist
