No: Separate issues
see ENT md for vertigo/ off balance
see rehab md
may get immediate relief by neck position
Wrap your arm around pillow next to chest so arms are
'down' while sleeping
head pillow has to be firm enough, and head must beperpendicular to your shoulder and not touching your
shoulder as you sleep.
