Hello,

over the past 2 months I have been experiencing dizzy spells randomly throughout the day. I have between 3-8 spells a day and they occur randomly, with no apparent triggers. I have also been having headaches to go with the dizziness. I very rarely suffer from headaches whereas now, I'm having one at least every other day, which is starting to concern me. I have also noticed over the past couple of days that I'm hearing a light ringing in my left ear.

I visited my GP around 6 weeks ago complaining of dizziness and he sent me away with antibiotics, without actually saying what they were for. I then returned to my GP a week after my first visit having not improved, and at that point just got told I was to improve with time. It is since then that the headaches and ear trouble has occurred, but because of the poor treatment I've received from my GP I'm not confident in going back to them, just to be fobbed off again.

So I was wondering if my GP was right in saying I would get better with time, or if there actually is a cause for concern and that I should seek medical help??

Any help or advice would be muchly appreciated :)
