BMJ 2012: 7860 (9th June)

Sundries not noted elsewhere:

Something constructive to do for chronic dizziness! This was a trial of giving out a booklet of vestibular rehabilitation exercises, with or without telephone support, to adults with chronic dizziness worse on head movement and not attributed to a non-vestibular diagnosis. It took a while for this to do anything (at 12 weeks the treatment groups were no better off than controls), but, by a year, the treatment had proved of significant help.

And uveitis/scleritis are rare complications of bisphosphonates, and should be mentioned to patients taking bisphosphonates.
