Vertigo/dizziness upon moving head and changing positions for 4 days. Nausea and slight headache. Just got a cat... Does this sound like an allergy?

Vertigo/dizziness upon moving head and changing positions for 4 days. Nausea and slight headache. Just got a cat... Does this sound like an allergy?

Vertigo : Not the most likely explanation. Vertigo like you describe is more likely to be due to a viral infection than to your new cat, although it's not impossible for a cat allergy to cause inflammation in your ears and lead to a stopped up head and vertigo. The commonest symptoms of cat allergy are itchy eyes, sneezing, nasal congestion and runny nose. See a doctor soon; vertigo is horrible! ...Read more

How can I tell if I have a cold, allergies or the flu? I had sneezing, fatigue, muscle pains, no fever, nausea, headaches, & dizzy past for few days.

How can I tell if I have a cold, allergies or the flu? I had sneezing, fatigue, muscle pains, no fever, nausea, headaches, & dizzy past for few days.

Cough ; congestion: Allergies often last longer and recur often. A cold does not recur and lasts for about a week or so. When you have this much coughing with nasal congestion and phlegm production, otc cold/sinus medication might relieve some of your symptoms. If it lasts for a long time, you have fever or produce colored phlegm, you should see a doctor. An allergist can sort this out for you. ...Read more

Can I take an otc antihistamine along with bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and prednisone? It is not for allergic reaction from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), just for pollen allergy

Can I take an otc antihistamine along with bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and prednisone? It is not for allergic reaction from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), just for pollen allergy

Yes: However, you may find that the prednisone (assuming you're using it for something else) helps more for the pollen allergy than antihistamine. If you are receiving treatment for chronic or worsening sinus pressure/infection, then I strongly recommend seeing an Allergist to get help in the future. Recurrent sinus infections will persist unless the allergy is addressed properly. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm eating a lot less since I started taking bee pollen because it doesn't make me hungry. Could that be why I feel dizzy and off every day?

I'm eating a lot less since I started taking bee pollen because it doesn't make me hungry.  Could that be why I feel dizzy and off every day?

Dehydrated: Drink plenty of water, 2 liters more a day (8 glasses with 8 more ounces) and see if you do not feel better. Make sure you are eating enough calories to fuel your body through the day with a balanced diet as well. Eat more vegetables and fruits and maybe a multivitamin and see how much better you will feel. It will be amazing. You are most likely just dehydrated. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

In addition to stomach issues does metformin cause headaches or dizziness? Bad headaches after each 500 mg dose

In addition to stomach issues does metformin cause headaches or dizziness?  Bad headaches after each 500 mg dose

No: These aren’t common side effects of metformin. However, that does not discount your experience. That they happen after each dose lends credence to it being the pill you’re taking, and it may be the metformin itself, and it may be other ingredients in the tablet. (It could also be neither.) Speak to your doctor — solutions may be as simple as trying a different generic pill as the first step. ...Read more

What BP meds cause no side effects? I've tried 3 and all cause bad dizziness, headaches and fatigue that I can't function with. I stopped the meds.

None: There is no BP medication (if you are referring to prescription pharmaceuticals) that does not have the potential to cause at least 1 side effect which has been reported to the FDA. What you need to do is work with your doctor to discover the way to get around the side effects you are experiencing either by trying different medications or different dosages of meds you've previously tried. ...Read more
