vertigo?

Episodes of dizziness headaches and feeling sick, is this vertigo?? I have had this before but not the headaches.

When I had that, I thought of it as vertigo but that has no clinician backing. Have you told your nurse?

I’ve got a gp app on Thursday,

It sounds like vertigo to me. If your GP agrees, they can give you a drug called stemetil which helps with nausea but doesn’t actively help with dizziness. If you have a physiotherapist, or are able to get one to see you, they can give you some exercises to help with dizziness. You can look up vertigo exercises on the Internet. The exercises have to be done quite often, and can immediately and temporarily (ie for 5-10 minutes) make you feel worse, but they do work.
