I am a 33 year old female. Living in UK. Two weeks ago I found out I had thrush and also had little bouts of vertigo for 2-3 days like I felt I was swaying a bit. To make matters worse I had fever too so I popped in a single dose of nise tablet. And for cold and cough I had 1 tablet each of wikoryl and ciplox. The following day after a couple of mins after I was out of bed I passed out. The NHS team came home checked my BP and sugar and said I was fine. Reason for collapse was excessive heat in the house and I was too rapped up in layers coz of fever. Had no medicines thereafter. Just used canesten pessary and cream for thrush as suggest by the doc. After 4-5 days my body started to recover. But now for the past 2 days I have again started to feel that I have this swaying sensation. I am unsure whether it is cause of the thrush. Please advise. I am feeling quite low cause of all this and is worrying me quite a lot. I have slight cold and a very light sore throat as well. The symptoms of thrush though less was thinking of taking a fluconazole 150 mg single dose. Could the thrush be reason for swaying or the cold or some other reason altogether? I remember earlier taking stemetil whilst in India. Am really confused. Just want to get normal asap and want the vertigo to vanish. Please Please help. Thanks

It could be labyrinthine vertigo for which you were prescribed stemetil and I assume you were better. Restart the same bot on need to basis(whenever you have excessive swaying) and start tab cinnarizine 25 mg twice daily for a week. Avoid sudden jerky movements of the head.

Hello, Technically anything which goes against the body clock is not advisable. But you are left with no choice. Get enough sleep and avoid caffeine intake after 6 pm. Avoid alcohol and smoking and ensure no heavy meals are taken through the night.

From a very young age, I have been sleepwalking. I often end up sleeping in the living room or sometimes even walk out of the house. In the past 5-6 years, I have been dreaming a lot. I dream every night, and have developed eye bags. One day I even sleep stripped. I woke up with my clothes next to my pillow, but did not remember taking them off.

Dear lybrate-user. Don't worry about your BP. Your BP is only harmful when it is continuously high for over a period of one whole year. You are just 35. You will be anxious when you take BP for the first time with your automated monitor. This is called white coat hypertension. Your correct BP reading will be after atleast 10 minutes relaxation. I will help you overcome your white coat hypertension. Take care.
