Vertigo is a medical condition characterized by a false sense of spinning or movement, where an individual feels as though they or their surroundings are rotating, tilting, or moving when there is no actual movement. It is often associated with dizziness and a loss of balance, leading to a sensation of being unsteady or off-balance.
In this blog, we will explore the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for vertigo, shedding light on this condition.
Vertigo presents a range of symptoms that can vary in intensity and duration. The most prominent symptom is a spinning sensation or a feeling that the world around you is rotating. Other common symptoms include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, unsteadiness, and difficulty maintaining balance. These symptoms may be triggered or exacerbated by certain head movements, making it crucial to seek proper medical attention for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Vertigo can stem from various underlying causes, including:
BPPV occurs when tiny calcium crystals in the inner ear become dislodged and disrupt the normal fluid balance, leading to vertigo episodes.
This condition is often caused by a viral infection affecting the vestibular nerve, resulting in inflammation and vertigo symptoms.
Meniere’s Disease is characterized by fluid buildup in the inner ear, leading to recurring vertigo attacks, hearing loss, tinnitus, and a feeling of fullness in the affected ear.
Individuals who suffer from migraines may
experience vertigo as a symptom during or between migraine episodes.
Vertigo treatment options may vary depending on the underlying cause and severity of symptoms. Some common approaches include:
This therapy involves a series of head and body movements to reposition the displaced calcium crystals in the inner ear, providing relief from BPPV symptoms.
In certain cases, medications such as anti-vertigo drugs, anti-nausea medications, or migraine medications may be prescribed to alleviate symptoms.
This specialized form of physiotherapy focuses on exercises and techniques that help retrain the brain and improve balance and coordination.
