BPPV: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Common although you're slightly on the younger side of when we tend to see it but that's OK....we mostly see it in women compared to men. Get to a good neurologist who believes in proving the diagnosis and teaching you the Brandt-Daroff exercises or doing an Epley maneuver as opposed to just medicating you because they basically don't work well. Good luck

Tinted glasses: Until you can do something more definitive try sunglasses for yourself. If appropriate you could see about getting tinted glass to cover the light fixture. See if your employer would consider a dimmer switch. If you are overly sensitive to the light compared to your colleagues you might want an eye exam to make sure it is not something going on with the eyes www.Medac4u.Com.

Stop taking the meds: If the diagnosis was made by a primary care physician or urgent care and she is taking antivert/meclizine... She should stop the medication which can prolong recovery. If she is continuing to have symptoms, she should see an ENT and get a "balance test" (eng) to confirm the diagnosis. She may also need an mri.

No simple answer...: Dizziness and fatigue is one of those things that we usually need a detailed medical history and physical to figure out. So many medical systems can cause dizziness: neurological, cardiac, vestibular, endocrine. It could be low blood sugar, low blood pressure, too little sodium, a medication side effect.... List can be pages long. I recommend having a thorough visit with your doctor.
