I m 22 years old and I was diagnosed with vestibular neuritis 5 weeks ago after a sudden attack of non stop vertigo, vomiting and my balance went off. The ENT prescribed dizinil for 10 days, then betaserc 16mg for 3 weeks: 3 times a day for a week, then the dosage lowered to twice a day for 2 weeks. After my last checkup appointment he told me to keep taking the betaserc for 7 more weeks because two of the symptoms are not gone yet. The first is that when i turn my head from right to left my vision is blur, but when i turn my head from left to right its all good! The second symptom is that I feel my head rocking when walking its getting better but still whenever I walk or do any cardio exercise I feel my head is rocking. Is it alright to keep taking the betaserc for 7 weeks? And should i stop taking it if the symptoms are gone before the next checkup in 7 weeks. Shall i go do any tests to know if its a vestibular neuritis or something else? The only test he did was a balance test, and he diagnosed me based on the symptoms. Thank you

My seven year old son hit his head on a brick wall at school today at around 11.30 so six hours ago. He came home from school as he felt sick and his head began to ache. Now he is still complaining about the headache being bad. He appeared to hit it on the top left side I believe. Wondering if i should take him to after hours care..
