Vertigo Accompanied By Neck And Back Pain For Almost 2 Months?
Hello doctor, I have a question. It has been more than two months that I have experienced a situation where my head is dizzy like the earth rotates suddenly whether I wake up, turn around, or stand up. This symptom is accompanied by soreness in the neck and back of the head and sometimes pain around the eyebrows and eyes. I have been to the doctor and it is said that I am just tired. my blood pressure is always normal, namely the range 110-120 / 80. At first I was still trying to calm down, but it has been more than two months since my symptoms are still the same. I even stopped taking headache relievers because I no longer felt comfortable taking drugs continuously. What are the symptoms of this disease? and what should i do?

Avoid sudden movements so as not to fall. Sit down immediately if vertigo strikes. Use several pillows so that the position of the head while sleeping is higher. Move your head slowly. Avoid head-looking, squatting, or bending. Identify your vertigo triggers and do exercises that can trigger your vertigo.
