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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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.

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
