Screening for CoViD-19. Recent reports suggest that vertigo is also a symptom of nCoViD-19.

As patient is diabetic in which diuresis is common and also complaining of weakness-- Chlorthalidone will increase her weakness and diuresis .. Get her CBC done to rule out anaemia KFT done to rule out diabetic nephropathy S.Vitamin - D levels done and correct vitamin D deficiency , if any . Vertigo and headache can be due to BPPV , Migraine or cervical spondylitis. Also keep COVID-19 in mind

Vertigo can be due to BPPV or labyrinthintis Or may be due to stress and anxiety Give TCA tri cyclic antidepressants or SSRI As with betahistine patient not improving Advise MR angio of brain as she is known case of DM and HTN
