When a person is diagnosed with Vertigo and are put on medication, are there any warning sings before hand that they are going to have a dizziness or does it come on instantly without warning?

Hi. In my case, yes thee are some warning signs like i am having some visual problems and headache. What I do is I close my eyes, if I feel like my surrounding is about to spin, i take the prescribed medication immediately(betahistine mesylate). The drug is a graet help in making vertigo manageable, if not prevent it. I hope this piece of information has helped.

I'm surrefiing through Vestibular neuritis.Irritation started while talking on cell phone. Does the signal of mobile affects the inner ear?

I have suffered from BPPV for many years now...... I have tried the eply maneuver a few times. While I have no insurance and very limited finances. I am not sure I am doing the exercise correctly. It seems to help when I can tolerate doing it, but only for a while. I was admitted to the hospital 2 weeks ago and given valum intravenously that seems to be the only thing to ever actually help. Also it seems I have more, longer lasting, and intense attacks in the fall. Has anyone experienced this?

Is there any proven medicine/treatment in homeopathy for positional vertigo?

Vertigo can be due to Cervical spondylitis, cervical anomalies, any eye anomaly,ear anomaly, cardiac problem, high and low blood pressure, poor axidation, mental exertion, disturbances of sleep and many more. One should try to detect the actual cause of vertigo. In fact Vertigo is a symptom of other anomalies present inside the body. reflecting the symptoms of whirling like sensation. Dr DBBajpai

Is is curable? How long time it takes to be cured? what are the effect and symptoms gradually may occur for long term neglegency? Is there any precaution to resist or protect? any guide lien?
guest Thursday, October 16, 2008
Yes, it is curable, if you use Ayurvedic medicine. The best way is to go for first ETG AyurvedaScan examination and find out what parts of the body is normal and abnormal, then select the proper Ayurvedic medicine for treatment. Along term treatment cures the condition.
