Dr. David :

were you having dizziness symptoms before the hospital visit?

Dr. David :

how old are you?

Dr. David :

what medical problems do you have?

Customer:

yes i am 58 i suffer with meniere's disease

Dr. David :

yes, that meniere's disease can cause bad dizzy spells.

Dr. David :

you really need a brain MRI scan which can see better than a CT scan.

Dr. David :

have you tried medications like meclizine or antivert to help the dizziness?

Customer:

i have had a brain mrl it came back normal but my balance is still not back to normal and i am due back to work on monday

Dr. David :

there are over the counter medications like meclizine and antivert and dramamine which could help

Dr. David :

also prescription scopolamine could help.

Dr. David :

diuretic medications like triamterene and hydrochlorothiazide could help decrease the amount of fluid in your inner ear and that could help the dizziness.

no

I would try these medications to see if they help
