VERTIGO - BPPV
Hi there,

I was diagnosed with BPPV by an ENT here in Malawi and as a result of my trauma to my right ear as per his diagnosis.

In 2002 I had surgery to fit an artificial bone between my eardrum and my stirrup and I have a small hole in my eardrum. I have constant sinus jand a post nasal drip. This doctor informed me that this is common and can carry on like this for the rest of my life. I just feel I can''t be dizzy for the rest of my life and I feel so lathargic. What can I take to to clear this up and help with the symptoms.

I am coming to South Africa Mid March and have an appointment to see my ENT but any advice will really help now until then.

Regards,
Kathleen
