I am 64…on a proton blocker …had a blood test 2 weeks ago cholesterol 6.2 otherwise told ok had an ecg 2 weeks ago advised ok …this was after first funny turn

OK. Funny turns in this age have to be thoroughly investigated.  Common causes being the heart, Brain , inner ear that maintains balance and the cervical spine. Other causes include autonomic dysfunction.  Just an egg and cholesterol are not sufficient investigations.

You Need a complete cardiac work up to Starr with this includes a 24hr tape, echocardiogram, stress ecg and cardiac enzymes.

If the above are OK the next one is getting a head ct and mri of neck.

I would suggest to channel this through your GP. It shouldn't be ignored.

Meanwhile you can start on betahistine tab twice a day for symptomatic management.

Anything else I can help with?
