Help for Dizziness

Friday, 13 Jan 2012 09:26 AM

Question: I woke up one morning, stood up and suddenly felt so dizzy I had to lay back down. It went away gradually. But now I have ringing in my ears. Could the two symptoms be related?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Ringing in the ears usually means there is some ear problem, and can include ear infections, wax, and sometimes a condition known as Menieres disease in which an inner ear disorder that involves hearing loss and dizziness. Do you also have some hearing loss? If your dizzy spells increase, you must visit your doctor.
