Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
Sure...lightheadedness and nausea can be symptoms of many different diseases and conditions, not necessarily an inner ear problem. There can be hundreds of possibilities, so if your doctor's treatment is not helping, you will need to go back so that these other possibilites can be addressed.
