Hi doctor, Thanks for the quick reply. Here are my answers. I am a male aged 27 years and single. I have been suffering from dizziness for the past one year. Since two months, it has got worse. It is of moderate to severe kind. It is present constantly for 24 hours. In severe conditions, I am unable to stand or walk. Whenever I stand, I get a feeling that I am going to fall. Yes, I do have episodes of vertigo, loss of balance and at times can hear sound in my ear. Occasionally, I do have pain in my eyes because of lack of sleep, but no visual problem. I do have sleeping issues too. I do not fall asleep on time. I sleep on my back with head on other side. I have sinus problem and I sneeze a lot that results in tears from my eyes. I have no headache. My doctor told me it is because of BPPV or cervical spondylosis. In the morning when I wake up, I have stiffness in neck. I am regularly doing Brandt-Daroff exercise. I am much worried. Please help.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Cervical spondylosis does not cause vertigo.
I would advise you to go for MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) of the brain and ENT (ear, nose and throat) evaluation.
Since you have balancing and hearing problem, I would suggest you to get an MRI done.

Thank you doctor,
I got an MRI done last year, but the results were normal. Even at that time I had dizziness, but not as severe as off now. I am having high blood pressure. My BP sometimes shoots up to 160/90. I am using tablet Tenormin 25 in the morning and night. Once, I had consulted an ENT specialist and he advised me to take impedance test and pure tone audiometry. Please have a look and suggest me accordingly.
