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 just unsteady?

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

Felt like i was going down a whirlpool

Dr. Hasan :

Ok

Dr. Hasan :

Does this spell last for seconds, minutes or hours?

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

secs

Dr. Hasan :

Any relation to neck movement?

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

maybe

Dr. Hasan :

Thanks a lot for your input. Dealing with dizziness is my specialty. 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 :

Your symptoms are consistent with a condition called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

Dr. Hasan :

It is related to imbalance of crystals in the inner ear.

Dr. Hasan :

There is no actual disease behind this.

Dr. Hasan :

You should visit an ENT specialist and he can fix it in office with the help of a maneuver called Eplys Maneuver.

Dr. Hasan :

There is nothing to worry and you are going to be fine.

Dr. Hasan :

Any question please?

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

Would that cause loss of hearing?

Dr. Hasan :

No it can't.

Dr. Hasan :

It can neither cause hearing loss nor ear ringing.

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

I find i have to have the TV volume higher then my wife.

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have ear ringing as well?

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

no

Dr. Hasan :

Well that hearing loss can be age related but has nothing to do with your dizzy spells.

JACUSTOMER-1osbtcw9- :

ok thanks

Dr. Hasan :

While visiting ENT you should get hearing test as well but there is no relation between hearing loss and dizziness in your case.

Dr. Hasan :
