Your doctor needs to know details about your symptoms. Here are some questions he or she may ask:

  • Do you have dizziness (vertigo) off and on or all the time?
  • When did your symptoms begin?
  • Did your symptoms begin after an injury?
  • Do your symptoms get worse after taking medication? If so, which medication causes this?
  • Do you have ringing (tinnitus) in one or both ears?
  • Do you have trouble hearing from time to time?
  • Do you feel pressure or have pain in one or both ears?

Here are some questions you may want to ask your doctor:

  • What should I do during an attack of dizziness?
  • What treatment do you recommend for my condition?
  • How long before I’ll notice results?
  • How does a change in diet help lessen my symptoms?
  • What medications can help relieve or stop an attack?
  • How effective are they?
  • Do they have side effects, risks, or complications?
  • Will I need surgery?
  • What are the side effects, risks, or complications of surgery?
  • Can low pressure pulse therapy help relieve my symptoms?
