Customer Question

I have woken up with vertigo. This is the secnd time this has happened in the past 18 months. What exercises can I do to help?
JA: Have you used any medication for vertigo?
Customer: No
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about vertigo?
Customer: The first time - last June. After three months of having the problem he finally took me into his surgery room and manoevered my head. It worked!
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I do not think so. I had an MRI last time. Nothing came up

Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.

You can try doing "Brandt Daroff" manoeuvres at home(See YouTube for method) . It's easier and very effective too. Do it every 4 hours for a couple of days. You can also take Tablet Meclizine 25 mg every 8 hours for 2 days in addition.
