Vertigo treatment in Dubai

An Overview

Vertigo is the sense of feeling off balance. The person feels his/her surroundings spinning or moving, making it difficult to maintain balance.

The sensations could range from mild to severe and can last for a few minutes to hours, making it difficult to retain balance and perform daily duties. It can happen due to problems with the inner ear, sensory nerve tracks, or the brain.

The palatine tonsils, which we commonly call tonsils, function as the body’s natural defence system against infection. They help to prevent the infection from going down to the throat. When they catch an infection, they swell and produce pain, and this condition of swollen tonsils is called tonsillitis.

Typically, tonsillitis subdues with salt-water gargle, medications, and sometimes on its own. However, it can also be very painful and problematic, requiring surgical removal of tonsils, called tonsillectomy. Dr Peter, one of the best tonsils doctors in Dubai, believes that tonsillectomy relieves painful symptoms of tonsillitis and ends its suffering.
