Patient :Good Day Doc! May I ask a question regarding my mother who is already 57 years old. She is experiencing dizziness for a few days now and she says that when she tries to open her eyes she feels that she is spinning and her headache and dizziness would subside if she gets some sleep and would syart feeling dizzy again whenevr she tries to sit and stand up from bed. Moreover when she lies on her left side her dizziness does not subside and cant go to sleep unlike when she lies on her rightside she is able to sleep. We cant go to see a doctor right now in the hospital because of her condition. Please give me advice on how to manage my moms condition. We suspect its vertigo but we are not able to buy an antivertigo medication as the local pharmacy requires doctors prescription.
