Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
These symptoms your wife is experiencing are little concerning. She has uncontrolled type 1 diabetes which increases risk of vascular disease like stroke. Her persistent dizziness can be a sign of stroke. Does she also have high blood pressure problem?Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.
Ok thanks for your reply--that is considered high for a diabetic. BP should be around 130/80
Also does she have any change in speech?
Yes I think she needs a brain scan at least to check for stroke--that much dizziness is unusual with vertigo.
Not likely as she does not have any fever or signs of active infection. Best wishes
Ok thanks for the update--good that you took her to the hospital --wish her the best
