Answer

To diagnose dizziness, physicians must use the essential tools of history, clinical examination, and follow-up. [6] The etiology in most of these patients mainly involves a vestibular disorder, such as BPPV, Ménière disease, or bilateral vestibular hypofunction. Appropriate management and follow-up are necessary to improve the well-being of these patients.
