      Are you suffering from Vertigo?

      Did you know that 40% of Americans have suffered from Vertigo at some point or the other? The first experience of Vertigo can be quite a horrifying experience. You might have a slight shift of the head and feel like you are spinning wildly or even feel that the world around you is spinning. The typical symptoms are spinning, swaying, feeling a loss of balance, tilting or feeling pulled to a direction. Some of the symptoms that can accompany vertigo are a feeling of nausea, headache, vomiting, sweat, hearing loss, ringing in the ears or abnormal and jerky eye movements.

      Causes of vertigo

      Usually, vertigo is caused by an inner ear problem. One of the major causes of this is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) where tiny calcium particles form clumps in the inner ear. This may happen due to old age or without any cause. Normally, it’s the inner ear that sends signals to the brain about head and body movements and balance. When the inner ear gets affected, the sense of balance is affected as well.

      Meniere’s Disease is caused by fluid build-up in the inner ear or changing pressure in the ear. This could be accompanied by ringing in the ears or even hearing loss. It can also be caused by vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis which is an inner ear infection caused by a virus.

      In rare cases, vertigo may be caused by migraines, head or neck injury, certain medications that cause ear damage, brain issues like stroke or tumor and so on.

      Diagnosis

      Vertigo does not need lab tests or diagnostic tools such as x-rays and scans. It’s diagnosed using simple bedside tests such as the Dix-Hallpike test and the supine roll test. If you think that you might be suffering from vertigo, it’s important to visit your doctor right away and start treatment.
