Depends on cause: Since there are many disorders which are associated with vertigo, cannot give one answer, but many OTC meds such as dramamine (dimenhydrinate) or meclizine may be useful for symptoms. Persistent vertigo needs full evaluation, and would start with otolaryngologist.

Help but no cures: Vertigo will often resolve on its own. There are exercises which will help abort the acute attacks. Go on youtube and search for vertigo exercises. Finally, meds help some affected individuals. There are no cures.

Depends: Only if due to middle ear inflammation. Other causes, like stroke improve over time, though many are left with significant deficits.

Yes: Positional vertigo is usually benign and self limited. However, a correct diagnosis is imperative and should be made by either a neuro-otolgist or neurologist. Rarely positional vertigo is central. Therefore a proper diagnosis must first be made.

Depends: An ENT doctor will be able to give you an idea. Sometimes just some simple head maneuver can cure the vertigo.

Can you tell me a natural cure vertigo?

Dr. Ed Friedlander

Maybe: Quite a few cases of vertigo are caused by an otolith that has come to be detached, floating in the fluid and bumping into receptors causing "benign positional vertigo". Some physicians are good at manipulating the head through some tricky gyrations and resettling the otolith. Perhaps this will apply to you. Best wishes.

What's a way to cure acute MS? And vertigo

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Dariush Saghafi
Neurology 33 years experience
Sorry, no cure to MS: There is no CURE to MS and the CURE to vertigo depends on the cause. If the MS is responsible for causing vertigo (often the case) then, trying to control the MS is the best way to go. If that doesn't work then, antivertigo medications may work but again, need to know what's causing the problem. MS has many options for drug treatment but NONE ARE CURES. See your neurologist for details.
