On 1st September 2012, I lost my balance & I fell down at about 7.00pm with my face down. This accident has hurt my face& Jaw. I felt a sudden jerk in my head also. Due to this impact I was feeling pain & I took pain killer medicines. On 3rd Sept at about 4.00am I tried to get up but cld not since I there was a feeling of terrific spinning. In the morning the Doctor who is staying in my Building was called & he diagonised as Benign Positional Vertigo & prescrebed medicines for Vertigo for 5 days.In the meantime I took MRTScan of Brain for my own satisfaction but the can did not indicate any damage. The vertigo medicine prescribed had very little effect & I continue to get the feeling of terrific spinning especially When I try to lie down for sleeping or when I try to getup from bed. All the time I used to feel that I am going to fall down any time. But this is not the case once I get up from the bed or while I am walking or while I am sitting. since I was not getting any cure even after taking these medicines, I was asked by my other Doctor friend to see a Neuro Physician. Accordingly I had visited this Physician to day the 17th Sept who diagonised as Post Traumatic Labyrinthitis & has prescribed various Medicines for 7 days. He has advised me bed rest for atleast 3 weeks.
I want to know what type of disease is this, whether this can be cured by medicines or I have to put up with this throughout my life. Further what kind of precautions I shd take to prevent this attack. Whether are there any specific exercises to prevent attacks. I am 65 year old & I have been doing yogas for the past 25 years to keep myself fit. Can I do Light Yogas during this period. Pl.advise.
