I have had a sensation of dizziness for some weeks now following

This answer was rated:

I have had a sensation of dizziness for some weeks now following a visit to the UK where I contracted a very severe cold and at the same time I had a problem with a previously root filled tooth. I survived the week by living off very strong pain killers and when |I returned the dentist put me on a strong antibiotic.
When I returned to the home, I had a very strange sensation of izziness and went to the local hospital where I was admitted with high blood pressure.
This seems to be under control now and I have had various tests including blood, cardiac readings and a brain scan. The heart doctor has said that the dizziness is nothing to do with the medicationI am each day ZANDIP 20 mg.
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
I agree with your doctor.
I think the dizziness is likely an inner ear issue that was triggered by the infection
Probably inflammation in the inner ear
I recommend you see an ear, nose and throat specialist to work this up
You might need medication like steroids to reduce the inflammation in the ear.
It could also be crystals in the fluid of the inner ear (very common) to which an ENT doctor can also treat
