Treatment for vertigo please?

Treatment for vertigo please?

Depends on cause: Symptomatic relief can come from staying still, taking meclizine, dramamine, (dimenhydrinate) valium, using a scopolamine patch. But often there is otolithic inner ear process which pt can reverse with an epley maneuver. Vertigo can be associated with migraine and cerebrovascular disease, and the underlying cause is treated. Get a diagnosis and direct therapy from there.

Can onyone suggest me the best treatment available for vertigo?

Can onyone suggest me the best treatment available for vertigo?

Determine cause: Vertigo may be caused by inner ear disorder or by disorder of the base of the brain. Episodes of severe spinning vertigo can occur with viral infection of the inner ear or meniere's disease. This can also occur with migraine and with certain types of seizures. Antihistamines and allergy treatments rarely help. Valium agents may be helpful but may also make them worse. Topiramate may help.

Might spinning vertigo when rolling over in bed go away on its own or do I need treatment?

See your doctor: Vertigo can be caused by a number of things, and it should be evaluated by your doctor to localize the source of the issue, especially if it is new in onset, prior to determining what therapy is required. See your doctor who can do a number of diagnostic tests to evaluate the symptom.

What do you advise if I'm female age-55 facing/feeling head vertigo (revolving every thing)plz tell me treatment of the said disease?

Vertigo: Vertigo is a complex problem and not all vertigo is the same. Treatment depends on the exact kind of vertigo. You could have BPPV or Meniere's disease. You could be suffering with migraine headache. Could be something neurologic or even just hyperventilation. You need to be evaluated to determine the right diagnosis to be able to get to the correct treatment. Good luck

I think I might have a vestibular disorder, I have had hazy and foggyness for 2 mths, I have a history of vertigo attacks. Is there a treatment?

Not sure vestibular: Hazy and foggy to me doesn't sound like vertigo. In most situations vertigo symptoms primarily involve the feeling of movement or motion. If you haven't seen an ENT yet you should for a complete evaluation of your inner ear.

My dad is 60yr old he is suffering from vertigo what are the reason, and reaction and treatment.

Number of things: Vertigo could be from something dangerous or something benign such as inner ear problem. Seeing your doctor is imperative! Most patients fear a stroke or aneurysm, but I would also point out that an ear condition called meniere's disease could lead to deafness if not properly treated.

Wht causes vertigo & how to cure it? Ithink it got worse after airplane ride last week. What can be the immediate treatment after having vertigo attack?

Wht causes vertigo & how to cure it? Ithink it got worse after airplane ride last week. What can be the immediate treatment after having vertigo attack?

Many causes: Paroxysmal vertigo can be associated with migraine, but other causes include benign positional vertigo, meniere's disease, and trauma to inner ear. If travel in an airplane worsens vertigo, one must consider an endolymphatic fistula. An otolaryngologist can help greatly.

I still get vertigo mostly after a cold since my first bout of labyrinthitis 15 years ago. Should I seek VTR treatment? Is my vestibularnerve damaged?

I still get vertigo mostly after a cold since my first bout of labyrinthitis 15 years ago. Should I seek VTR treatment? Is my vestibularnerve damaged?

Vertigo is Rx: Dizziness is, as many symptoms, has multiple causes, I needed to know what was the first reason, and how it was treated. Usually it has to do with the ear, I would treat for sinusitis 14 course and treat with anti vertigo medication during the day is different than at night and usually I had little or no recurrence in young people.

"prominent aica branches are compressing 7th & 8th nerves. Have had tinnitus vertigo 10 weeks. Why do symptoms suddenly start what is the treatment?

"prominent aica branches are compressing 7th & 8th nerves. Have had tinnitus vertigo 10 weeks. Why do symptoms suddenly start what is the treatment?

AICA: The only explanation of sudden starting of symptoms is probably the compression got significant now. The treatment for persistent symptoms is basically surgical decompression. Make sure this is done at a higher center because this is not a common case and you need an expert to do this procedure.

Vertigo treatment and ear infection?

Vertigo treatment and ear infection?

Treat the ear: Assuming you didn't have vertigo initially: if you have both an ear infection and vertigo, then it is very likely that the ear infection caused the vertigo. As you treat the ear infection, the vertigo should improve. However you might need to take some meds to help with the acute symptoms of vertigo.

Can EMDR therapy cause vertigo and dizziness? I have had nonstop vertigo during my treatment past few months. Worse at night after dreaming.

Can EMDR therapy cause vertigo and dizziness? I have had nonstop vertigo during my treatment past few months. Worse at night after dreaming.

Unusual: In my experience EMDR is great to treat PTSD, and have never encountered an adverse effect of vertigo and dizziness. This suggests some additional problem, likely within the inner ear. Temporarily, see otolaryngologist, and get answers, and put EMDR on hold.

Had positional vertigo for over 10 years. Hallpike positive, but after treatment, it comes back mildly usually after I get a cold. Vestibular neuritis?

Had positional vertigo for over 10 years. Hallpike positive, but after treatment, it comes back mildly usually after I get a cold. Vestibular neuritis?

Good case: A cold can make symptoms worse, for sure, but I do not believe that means it is vestibular neuritis. Since you are sensitive to the Hallpike and you feel better with positional treatment, it cannot be just a case of vestibular neuritis. There must be a benign positional component too.
