  • What should I do during an attack of dizziness?
  • What treatment do you recommend for my condition?
  • How long before I’ll notice results?
  • How does a change in diet help lessen my symptoms?
  • What medications can help relieve or stop an attack?
  • How effective are they?
  • Do they have side effects, risks, or complications?
