Links Between Medication And Vertigo

By Christian Goodman

Primarily I thought it was an earthquake as everything around me was moving. Later I found it was only me who was experiencing this movement. Lastly I remember I was lying in my stomach on the ground to make everything still around me.

The narrated description was given by a vertigo sufferer. She had been experiencing these symptoms for a past few months.

This problem was diagnosed as vertigo. Those suffering from it feel that other person or objects around them are in a moving state. It is more or less like dizziness.

Doctors term it as a symptom rather than a disease. Problems in the structure of ears lead to this problem.

There are more than one types of vertigo. The commonest one is the benign paroxysmal positional vertigo which can be identified by its symptom of vomiting, impaired cognitive abilities, nausea, perspiration, hearing loss. All these may just start suddenly.

The other type of peripheral disorder is Mires syndrome. In this rare disorder a person can become total deaf or nearly deaf. The symptoms are same to the other common peripheral disorder; the only difference is that the patient may have a "full" feeling in his or her ear at the onset of the problem.

For vertigo suffering person the best option is to sleep or lie down when the attacks start. But that can be a problem as the symptoms can increase or decrease with a course of hours or day.

My client had undergone some medication for these symptoms, but unfortunately the vertigo remained. On the other hand, it resulted in some rather unfavourable side effects.

While undergoing a blood pressure check up for her hypertension, the nurse discussed that the medication she was using for her high blood pressure often showed vertigo as a side effect. It was after that she noticed the side effect actually started while she was undergoing this medication.

She was very much confused as this side effect was never mentioned to her when she started this medicine. Neither was it ever discussed while her frequent visit for vertigo treatment.

Temporary and chronic vertigo can result from number of drugs obtained as prescribed drugs or those that are sold over the counter. These drugs include common ones like those used to treat for flu and colds, some antibiotics and anticonvulsants.

One may get tempted to sue the doctor in such a case, but remember that medication for hypertension is the most common treatment that doctors advise to the patients.

This patient joined my program as she was in need of both high blood pressure and vertigo treatments. Under my program she got a great relief from both the problems. She even discontinued her medication and is now symptom free. My program is here for you to get out of your vertigo and dizziness problems. EIN: EL331005 - 31820
