My brother in law has sudden dizziness that is so bad he just falls to the floor and cant get up for 2 or more hours. He had an episode at work and had to be picked up off the floor and taken home. He gets a headache with this and vomits repeatedly. He has been tested for inner ear problems but doesnt know where to go from here and his G.P. hasn't suggested anything. He can feel dizzy and sick for weeks and I was wondering if this could be neurological in nature. Can anyone suggest
what to do next to help him?
Thanks for any feedback. It is appreciated.

  • The inner ear disease your doctor is talking about is probably Meniere's Disease. Is there any sudden stress that could be the catalyst to these episodes (something that sets him off)? I will do some research into this and see if I can find anything that will help.
