What can I do for a severe case of vertigo without insurance?

I have had severe verigo for 2 wks. I went to emergency and found I had a menigioma on my rt frontal lobe and a right branch block in my heart. I also have had a sinus infection and ear infection which lasted for a while and which I took 2 rounds of antibiotics for. I still have some symtoms of infection.

I have no insurance and cannot get care from a neurologist or cardiologist. Is there I some other approach? Thank you, Patty

Some women who have been diagnosed with a menigioma may not need treatment; others do require treatment.

It is important to know if your menigioma is malignant or benign, as a malignant tumor would need to be treated. If your tumor is benign, it does need to be monitored by a doctor and you may not need treatment.

Since you do not have health insurance, you want to make sure you are taking care of yourself (mind, body, spirit) in every possible to keep your body healthy and your stress level low. Eating well, exercising, sleeping, positive-mental-attitude...all this can help your body heal.

If you still have signs of infection, this does need to be treated immediately. Infections do not go away on their own, and can become worse (and more costly). Are you able to pay on a sliding-scale, or pay up front/in cash for a 20% (or more) discount?

Also, since you do not have health insurance, you DO want to pay out-of-pocket to see a doctor to monitor your tumor. This can save you money down the road, if you do need treatment, because if the tumor changes in anyway, you will be able to treat it early (it is MUCH more expensive to treat a tumor that has grown or changed). So, pay for the office visit now....and you can detect any problems in their early stages. Are you able to purchase any type of health insurance, even if it is major medical (in case you do need treatment)?
