    Good evening Doctor. Hope you are fine. Last night around ,2.30 am when I got up from bed to go to rest room i could not maintain balance to walk.I found it difficult in maintaining balance till 7 am. I took one dose of Alumina. But no vertigo. There is no difficulty in speaking, writing swallowing etc. But I feel like some hangover and i always fear that it may recur.In the meantime i consulted a homeopath over phone who has gone through my blood reports and ECG and told me that excepting average sugar(Fasting 135, HBA1c 7.5,Average Glucose 168) all other parameters are ok. He said there may two causes for the issue viz ENT or due to neck pain. He suggested me taking Nux vomica 30 every night for 7 days. He also suggested Spigelia 30 may be taken after 7 days if the problem exists. . He was right and i could feel very little neck pain when I bend down or turn up or turn my head left or right.

    Two years ago i suffered a vertigo for about 30 seconds . At that time I was suffering from cold ,sinus,closure of ears etc and consulted ENT He said no ent problem. He prescribed medications for loss of balance for 10 days and I was ok.

    Now also he has prescribed the same medicines which are for dizziness and i have taken it for 5 days .Now I am almost alright Now I request you to suggest some medicines immediately.
    Thanks and regards
    Dr Ramasamy

    My name is Mandy Pemberthy and I am 61 yrs old
    I was born with Cerebellar Ataxia but only diagnosed in my 40s
    My condition was mild and progressing very slowly so that tremors in my right hand were first indication that something serious was going on.
    On diagnosis it was noted I also have mild Dysarthria
    Since then coordination in my right arm and hand has got very bad and I also have balance issues and some spasticity of the lower leg on my left side.
    I have always suffered tiredness after activity emotional times or intense concentration.
    I have been diagnosed with ME/CFS as well and have had to deal with that for the last 2 yrs although the onset was gradual and quite likely over considerable prior period.
    Because of intense fatigue limiting activity I acquired a wheelchair which I use periodically (my husband pushing me) on long walks etc we have this for past year.
