Hello, I have dizzines associated with nausea,loss of balance

Resolved Question:

Hello,
I have dizzines associated with nausea,loss of balance and burning back headache for 2 weeks. Also had heart palpitations. I have been to GP got motion sickness medicine, then another medicine, betahistine , as the other had no effect. Today I had the Epley manoeuvre. GP thinks I have BPAV. I am not so sure..I have bad headache especially when lying down , feels like my brain is burning and sore to heave my head on the pillow.Also my cheeck and ears start butnig whilst my nose gets really cold and my palms are cold.
I have headaches for over a year , treted with mix of paracetamol and nurofen.
I don't know what to do anymore. Thank you!

Dr. Hasan :

Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.

Dr. Hasan :

Do you feel spinning while being dizzy or feel unsteady?

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have ear ringing or decreased hearing?

Dr. Hasan :

Please enter the chat to proceed.

Customer:

I feel unsteady, no ringing in my years but they feel throbbing when on pillow. Hearing seems fine although at times I need to ask twice to be sure i understand correctly.

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have neck pain?

Dr. Hasan :

How long the dizzy spell lasts?

Customer:

no.

Customer:

dizzy spell.. few minutes but I am losing balance when walking

Customer:

i need another person to support me. it is worse when outside rather than indoors, lately

Dr. Hasan :

Any test like MRI advised?

Customer:

no. I have not been sent to a specialist yet.

Customer:

doctors still want me to wait 2 more weeks

Dr. Hasan :

Roxana thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.

Dr. Hasan :

Dealing with dizziness is my specialty.

Customer:

Thank you

Dr. Hasan :

Dizziness is your main symptom and everything else is associated.

Dr. Hasan :

Dizziness can come from three systems of body; Ears, Heart and brain.

Dr. Hasan :

Ear disorders causes spinning sensation

Dr. Hasan :

Since you feel unsteady, ears are not the likely cause of your symptoms.

Dr. Hasan :

and BPPV with your symptoms is out of question.

Customer:

ok

Customer:

That is my concern at the moment, that i am not treated for the right issue

Dr. Hasan :

Your doctor has so far treated you for ear related illness but it doesn't seems to be ear related and that is the reason that you have got no benefit .

Customer:

what would you advice?

Dr. Hasan :

Your symptoms are not something which can be ignored

Dr. Hasan :

You don't need to wait for 2 weeks.

Dr. Hasan :

Either call your GP to get your MRI at the earliest.

Dr. Hasan :

Or ask him to send you to a neurologist.

Dr. Hasan :

MRI report will further tell the cause.

Dr. Hasan :

If that is clear then neurologist will decide further.

Dr. Hasan :

Your neck x rays are required as well.

Customer:

I have tried today to say that I want to see a specialist but been told that they want to do the epley manoeuvre and wait

Customer:

I don't seem to make an impact on their decisions

Dr. Hasan :

In BPPV, a sudden bout of spinning sensation comes for few seconds and there is no associated symptom with that.

Dr. Hasan :

You don't have anything like that.

Dr. Hasan :

So this is no BPPV

Dr. Hasan :

But this time you can ask for it again.

Customer:

Thank you!

Dr. Hasan :

Soreness of head is never a symptom of BPPV>

Customer:

It is really helpful talking with you.

Dr. Hasan :

You are most welcome.

Dr. Hasan :

Anything else you want to ask?

Customer:

Just to clarify : I need to ask to see a neorologist or a MRI scan?

Dr. Hasan :

MRI first and then neuro.

Customer:

ok thank you!

Dr. Hasan :

Most welcome. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always.
