Customer Question

Hi, so basically it's. short question. But I woke up this morning feeling very dizzy. And all throughout the day my head has been a little bit off, not dizzy exactly but feeling like I was about to go dizzy. What I have noticed now however is that I only get that real dizziness when I turn my head to the left. What could be happening?

Oh just to add, I also have this on the right side of my neck. Not sure if it is linked to the dizziness when turning head to the left please see attached file

Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.

I don't have any other medical issues that I'm aware of except for being extremely over weight. And I currently take no medication.

Thank you for that additional information.

It sounds like you may be coming down with the flu and your inner ear has been involved.

This can cause you to feel dizzy etc.

I'm not sure what that is on your neck.....

So. What should you do?

Try to take it easy.
Drink a lot of fluids and eat a good diet.

Take some tylenol etc.

Unfortunately since this is most likely a viral infection antibiotics won't help :(

If things get worse then have your GP take a look at you.

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
