Finally got an answer

After 9 weeks of feeling dizzy and like im going barmy, my doctor has finally said I have vertigo and gave me some medication. Hopefully by the time I go back in two weeks my symptoms will have disappeared but we shall wait and see !!

Re: Finally got an answer

Vertigo is a symptom, not a diagnosis. Depending on the cause, vertigo sometimes will pass on its own in a few days or weeks. But if it doesnt, then you need to see a balance specialist. (otologist)

Re: Finally got an answer

Thank you for your reply. If my symptoms dont get better with the medication I have been given I will be going back to see my doctor, but dont really want to keep taking the tablets long term.
