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?
