How can I stop vertigo from eustachian tube defects? Happens everytime the weather changes :/ . Im too old to have tubes placed- and don't want them

Eustschian tube: Eustschian tube treatment options are somewhat limited, but there are a few things beyond the typical ear tubes, although they are an option.To at least be aware if. Medical treatment consists of oral decongestants and nasal steroid sprays. Sometimes, we'll give oral steroids, but that is only short term. A relatively new option is a balloon dilation procedure. It actually works quite nicely. ...Read more

Help! need to know if there are good OTC medicines that i can take to stop this vertigo?

Yes: Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) over the counter is Meclizine 25 mgm. It will cause drowsiness. The problem is you do not know why you have the vertigo, nor do you know if it is the result of inflammation in the inner ear or the brain. Although the dramamine (dimenhydrinate) will give you some relief of the vertigo, i urge you to get a diagnosis before treatment. ...Read more

I did cocaine yesterday... I am not a chronic user by any means.... But feel very dizzy and have vertigo today. What can I do to stop it?

I did cocaine yesterday... I am not a chronic user by any means.... But feel very dizzy and have vertigo today. What can I do to stop it?

Don't use cocaine.: Step 1. cocaine is not legal, unsafe, can cause serious injur to the sinuses, and can cause heart attacks and other injury via vasoconstriction and compromising blood flow to your organs. One of those organs is the brain. You may have suffered a small stroke. I think it wise to be checked by an MD. I'd also add that when buying street drugs you don't know what is really in them. Visit with a doc. ...Read more

See HA specialist: Do not stop your current medication. Once a diagnosis of migraine has been made effective management of migraine involves three specific strategies: 1) patient education, 2) non-pharmacological management (e.g. acupuncture), and 3) pharmacological (medical) management. See an orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation and professional migraine management. ...Read more

Dr. Stated plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) could also be the reason for my vertigo - could vertigo really start 8 months after taking it? I don't want to stop this drug.

Hydroxychloroquine: This drug can produce numerous side-effects with neurological overtones, including vertigo, but it is unusual (although not impossible) to have these develop after 8 mos of treatment. Suggest you work this out with the rheumatologist to see whether this may be related more to your underlying illness than to the plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine). Sound like you are already having this assessed. Good luck. ...Read more
