DISCLAIMER: We do NOT consider ourselves "dizzy" experts, but provide the following info as a service to patients. As we are an ENT practice, we will only perform the appropriate testing and evaluation to see if the ears and/or allergies are a cause of a patient's dizziness. Anything more needs to be arranged through your primary care physician or another specialist. Generally speaking, a neurologist is the specialist able to provide the most comprehensive evaluation of dizziness.

Answer the questions below to get some rough idea of what MIGHT be causing your dizziness as well as to get an idea of what kind of studies may be obtained when you see a doctor. Keep in mind that these questions are geared towards an ENT workup... ie, focus is on determing whether the ears may be playing a role or not. Read more about dizziness in general here.

The dizziness lasts continuously for hours to days before improving.
