Woke up in night with vertigo/dizzy I take betahistine tabs &missed one dose 2day. Also have panic disorder. My nose is bit blocked. Scared I'm gona die?

You will not die: Vertigo is extremely unpleasant, right up there with panic disorder. In fact, they overlap in symptoms to some degree and some people get non-fearful panic attacks with vertigo as the predominant symptom. Do you have any medication for break- through panic?

Further testing: Normal imaging (MRI) is reassuring, but it is uncommon for there to be an obvious lesion on MRI to explain dizziness. Functional testing through a balance lab (ent/ audiology center) is more likely to identify a cause. Many tests are available, including eng/vng, electrocochleography, computerized dynamic posturography, vestibular evoked myogenic potential, etc. See an ENT for testing. ...Read more
