The problem subsided, but started up again after a deep tissue massage, while in Cabo, MX. When I lay down the room spins for a short time. And it is especially severe when i lay on my left side. For the past two days, I've had a neck ache and headache, which has caused mild nausea. Would you recommend an Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist? We are leaving the country for 3 weeks beginning a week from today and i would like to have this situation under control if possible. thank you.

Most definitely make an appointment with an ENT specialist before going abroad. Generally, vertigo indicates a from a problem with the nerves and the structures of the balance mechanism in your inner ear (vestibular system), which sense movement and changes in your head position. Sitting up or moving around may make it worse. Sometimes vertigo is severe enough to cause nausea, vomiting and imbalance.
