The feeling that you or your surroundings are spinning is referred to as VERTIGO. Vertigo is a medical disease that causes the sufferer to experience sudden bursts of extreme dizziness, which makes people feel off balance. If you or someone you know has frequent dizzy episodes that leave you feeling as if you are spinning or as if the world around you is whirling, you may be suffering from vertigo.

Vertigo Causes

  • Vertigo may be caused by problems with the brain or the inner ear.
  • Labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis may also produce vertigo. Labyrinthitis is an infection of the inner ear that may cause hearing loss. Labyrinthitis is caused by an infection of the inner ear with a virus or bacterium.
  • The most frequent kind of vertigo is BVVP (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), which is caused by a buildup of microscopic calcium particles (canaliths) within the inner ear canal. By giving a signal to the brain, the inner ear assists the vestibular system in balancing bodily movement. Canalith deposition makes it difficult for the inner ear to relay signals adequately, resulting in abrupt head movement and dizziness.
  • It may also be caused by an acoustic neuroma, which is a form of tumour of the nerve tissue in the inner ear. Acoustic neuroma symptoms include hearing loss and ringing in the ear.
  • It may also be caused by Meniere’s illness. Meniere’s disease is an inner ear illness characterised by fluctuating pressure and fluid buildup within the ear. This condition is linked to inconsistency in hearing loss as well as ringing in the ears.
  • Vertigo may also arise as a result of a neck or head injury, medicine that causes ear damage, Migraine, or other brain issues such as tumours and stroke.

Vertigo Symptoms

Vertigo symptoms include:

  • Head Spinning
  • Headache
  • Sweating
  • Eye movement that is abnormal
  • Hearing loss that occurs on a regular or sporadic basis
  • Hearing a ringing in the ear

Vertigo Treatment

Vertigo usually fades gone with time. It simply happens because the brain occasionally adjusts to changes in the inner ear, relying on other mechanisms to maintain equilibrium.

  • Vestibular Rehabilitation this treatment is a sort of physical therapy aimed at strengthening your vestibular system. Because the vestibular system’s principal job is to provide messages to the brain concerning head and body motions in relation to gravity, this therapy may be quite beneficial. If you have frequent attacks of vertigo, this kind of therapy may be advised since it helps to teach your other senses to compensate for vertigo.
  • Repositioning Maneuvers of Canaliths-This treatment consists of a series of body and head movements designed to transfer calcium deposits from the canal to an inner ear chamber where they may be readily absorbed by the body.
  • Medicine In certain circumstances, medication may also treat the illness or alleviate symptoms such as motion sickness, nausea, and so on.
  • Surgery If the vertigo is caused by a major condition, such as a tumour, neck or brain damage, surgery may help treat the vertigo.
