Hello,I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today. Do you have any abnormal hearing/ ear discharge or pain at the ear? Were any investigations obtained to see for the cause? Do you have any diagnosed medical condition?

Expert:  Ken replied 1 year ago.
Vertigo in your case is due to abnormality at the middle ear. Middle ear is a closed chamber with small hair follicles. Any change in posture makes these follicle send signal to the brain which in turn makes particular muscles act and hence there is no vertigo. Any change in pressure within this chamber leads to abnormal signals to the brain and hence vertigo. The cause of abnormal pressure can be varied - Inflammation or infection is the common cause. Next step - CT scan would help to look for severity of abnormality within the middle ear. You may need antibiotic/ anti-inflammatory and anti allergic medicine course to get rid of the abnormal pressure. Till than - have balanced diet, adequate fluid/ steam inhalation and warm water gargles {with pinch of salt} helps. benadryl and Ibuprofen should help too.Wish you well.Best
