I had a tooth infection im guessing for at least 3 months (didnt know it was infected) and one day i woke up to the room spinning and basically vertigo. So basically had seen a doctor, ENT, everything. Didnt think it could be because of my tooth, but others told me otherwise. So i had a root canal done yesterday and was prescribed antibiotics to kill the infection. So do you think this tooth infection could be the reason for me having vertigo?
I usually don't notice patients with vertigo due to a tooth infection but the pain can radiate out to various area of the head and cause headaches, ear pain, etc. Has the vertigo improved since the root canal?
the vertigo i have now is just more like im slightly moving when im not. not to bad but still dont want to live like this. usually feel good in the morning, gets worse as time goes by then starts getting better.
So your regular physician ran a bunch of tests to check for blood sugar, blood pressure, etc to make sure it wasn't anything else. I assume the ENT checked your ears to make sure it wasn't due to something in your ear.
