Patient Comments: Dizziness - Treatment

What was the treatment for your dizziness?

Comment from: Jess f., 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: March 26

I felt dizzy and it felt like I was fading out and sweating with a cold feeling sensation. I was brought to the emergency room and they checked all my vital signs. My blood pressure was 130/80, my ECG was normal and I vomited some bitter fluid from my stomach. They injected, I think Plasil, and afterwards they gave a pill for dizziness, and after a couple of minutes lying on the bed I felt a little bit better. They advised me to consult an ENT specialist to further check if it is vertigo related to ear; I don't know what that is. Then I was discharged from the hospital and I'll see an ENT specialist tomorrow.

If you are experiencing any type of dizziness, the best thing to do is search for providers who will help you. Do a web search for "treat dizziness" in your area to find clinics that can assist.

I have Hashimoto's disease which is linked to my Hypothyroidism. I get dizzy whenever I'm hungry so if I don't eat large enough meals or go too long without food I get dizzy and feel faint and get a sharp migraine if I don't do anything quick enough. Needless to say, I'm used to the feeling. All I do is eating something that has sugar (fruit punch works the best) and if I have food around I'll snack on something. The idea is to get something like sugar that works quickly and then eat something that will sustain you for a longer time frame, like crackers with cheese or a bagel. That way I don't need to eat a full meal in between.
