Is There A Connection Between Vertigo And Indigestion?
Hello, I’m Arista, 22 years old. Yesterday when I was cutting my nails while standing I saw the fence of my house was shaking and when I looked at the objects around the object my vision seemed to vibrate… then I continued to help my mother wash the dishes in the kitchen I started to feel nauseous, then continued along with the ringing in my head and my ears suddenly couldn’t hear, then I sat on the chair I was still holding my head how come I couldn’t feel my head.. then I lay down in my room, I started to hear my mom say something but it wasn’t clear for 4-5 minutes I held my head again and it turned out that I was sweating. Well, I’ve been like this several times, like once a month there must be. And every time I wake up when I stand up, my head is already ringing and I immediately look for the floor to lie down, and yesterday I was just confused and that was the hallmark of vertigo… now what I’m confused about, when I check with the doctor, the doctor focuses on digestion me, said that I eat less regularly and lack of water. And my blood pressure is normal 110/80. And given broadamox drugs, dexclosan, fasgo paracetamol, and madrox. Now I’m afraid that my vertigo will be ruled out… is this correct? Thanks..
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Vertigo is a symptom characterized by a feeling of spinning, whether the environment is spinning, or the person himself is spinning. This condition makes it difficult for a person to walk straight, and tends to require support when walking and usually prefers to lie down rather than sit or stand.
However, vertigo is not a disease, but symptoms such as cough, runny nose, diarrhea and vomiting. There are certain diseases that cause vertigo symptoms, including:
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Is a disease that causes vertigo when triggered by a sudden change in position, such as from squatting to standing, looking up or turning quickly.
Labyrinth. Inflammation or infection of certain parts of the inner ear. The common cause is a virus and there are symptoms of ear pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever.
Meniere's disease. It is a more characteristic disease with three core symptoms of ringing in the ears, vertigo and hearing loss.
Among other causes are vertigo due to head injury, vertigo due to brain tumor and vertigo due to neurological disorders. Perhaps what your doctor means is that there are certain conditions that can be a risk factor or trigger for vertigo symptoms in one of the diseases we have mentioned, including fatigue, stress, hunger, late eating, and consumption of salty foods.
So indeed, with drugs that have been prescribed, your doctor has covered all possibilities. There are antibiotics to treat bacterial infections which when it occurs in the center of balance in the ears can cause vertigo, there are painkillers, digestive drugs and symptom relievers. Our advice, keep taking this drug as recommended by your doctor, and limit activities, don't be too physical, eat regularly, avoid stress, and exercise regularly. If your condition does not improve, don't hesitate to consult a neurologist again. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
