Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My problems are headaches and dizziness. When I woke up this morning, my head was aching and when I stood up, I felt the room turning around. I could not stand for a long time. I have a previous history of vertigo and migraine.

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

From what you have mentioned, most probably you have vertigo which may be due to many causes like:

  • Inflammation of the labyrinth (inside of the ear)
  • Positional vertigo with certain movement.
  • Meniere disease which is associated with increased pressure inside the ear. So if you have any hearing loss or tunning sound in the ears, kindly let me know.

My suggestions include:

  • I suggest taking Betaserc (Betahistine) tablet every eight hours.
  • Chlorpheniramine two tablets before sleeping. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicine.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
