A 22-year-old female asked:

what is the differential diagnosis of diplopia in patient with vertigo?

Big question: Start with what kind of diplopia - horizontal, vertical or skewed. That will help tell you which eye muscles are involved. Pain with eye movement is worrisome. Diplopia that gets worse with fatigue may be a muscle issue. Vertigo and diplopia makes one think of inner ear or brainstem difficulties, but these can be hard to differentiate. Trauma can cause horizontal diplopia

Do seasonal allergies cause dizziness?

Allergy and Immunology 23 years experience
Possibly: Occasionally, dizziness and vertigo might happen in conjunction with seasonal allergies, but it is not likely unless the allergy symptoms are very prominent (i.e. Itching, watery eyes, running nose, itching nose and throat, sneezing, nasal congestion), and even then, it's not common. You should not assume that the dizziness is from allergies without an evaluation.

Less fluid removal: When you develop dizziness and nausea after a dialysis treatment, that usually indicates that too much fluid was removed during the treatment. You may want to speak to your doctor about increasing your target weight so less fluid is removed during the treatment.
