Vertigo is a symptom of a disordered system
of balance. It is strictly defined as a hallucination of movement. Patients do struggle to describe
their symptoms very precisely and they present to me with symptoms that they describe ranging
from dizziness, lightheadedness, problems with coordination, movement and occasionally
a patient will present following a fall. One of the important things I need to do as a
treating doctor is to work out from the patient’s symptoms precisely what they’re describing
and which body part that’s likely to be associated with. The symptom of vertigo can arise from disorders
in many different parts of the body. Our balance function is coordinated by the brain and the
brain is central to the process of maintaining balance. However, the brain receives signals
from our eyes giving us information on our orientation and space. In addition, the brain
receives signals from the inner ear in relation to our movement, and input is also from sensors
within our joints and within the soles of our feet. The brain takes all of this information,
analyses this information and using this information maintains our state of balance function. Vertigo can be a symptom of disease in many
different parts of the body. I most commonly deal with inner ear disorders
and vertigo is a characteristic feature of diseases of the inner ear. But in addition, these symptoms
of balance disturbance and vertigo can also arise from diseases of the brain
and conditions that affect our ability
to maintain our position in space. Any impairment of vision can result
in poor balance and any conditions affecting our limbs and our mobility, such as arthritis
or peripheral neuropathy can also result in difficulties with balance and give rise to
symptoms of vertigo. When I meet a patient with vertigo and work
through the history and the story with the patient, working through the three common
systems that can give rise to the symptom. If the disease is affecting the inner ears,
patients will often present with associated hearing loss, tinnitus or problems with discharge
or infection in the ears. The next most common system to be involved in patients with balance
disturbance is the neurological system. With one of the commonest conditions I see being
an association with migraine. And these patients would present typically with headaches and
visual disturbance. Finally, patients with balance disturbance may have
problems with their cardiovascular system. And these will be patients who are
complaining more of lightheadedness, may have a history of palpitations, heart disease,
minor strokes or even blackouts. My particular interest is in managing patients
with inner ear causes for their vertigo. By far the commonest cause that I come across as
a condition called benign positional vertigo. This condition results from degeneration in
the inner ear causing free-floating particles to be symptomatic within the balance canals.
This condition can be very effectively treated by repositioning manoeuvres. And patients
typically require just one or two treatments with the vast majority following this having
complete resolution of their symptoms. The next most common condition that I would treat
would be Meniere’s disease. This results in hearing loss, balance disturbance,
fullness in the ear and tinnitus. The vertigo can be effectively controlled
by medical treatments, injections and occasionally surgical procedures
on the ear. Finally, I see many patients who’ve
lost inner ear function either as a result of trauma or viral infection. Typically, these
patients will present with an initial acute vertigo and then a more chronic balance disturbance. My management of these patients
is to use Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy, which is a form of exercise treatment
which can be extremely effective but may take many months before
a significant or complete recovery is achieved.

Today on my way to work I had to pull over because the highway started shaking while my head was spinning. I felt like I needed to vomit but nothing came up.

I have an infant & have had attacks while holding him.I can usually push through but I fear its getting worse. Suggestions Plz?

  11. I suffered with VERTIGO off and on for 14 years. Last year it started and would not go away. I suffered 4 months straight. Then I read about magnesium deficiency and its affects. I went and bought Magnesium Oxide 400 mg and after 3 days I saw a big improvement and in less than a week no more vertigo. My neighbor even used it and is now vertigo free after years of suffering. I have seen that Ch elated Magnesium is absorbed more readily so you could try either. It worked for me and my neighbor. I hope it works for you.

  22. I can tell you exactly what vertigo feels like doctor. I've experienced it so many times. This is what vertigo feels like…… you're driving down the freeway doing about 70 miles an hour. The car starts spinning you're out of control. You can't stop the car. You can't get out of the car. And this can last for minutes, hours or days. The second experience that can explain it for those who never been in a spinning car. Did you ever go on the floor drop at a carnival. Pretender on the floor drop at a carnival that's at full speed and the operator leaves and comes back hours or even days later.

  23. It's weird I felt that way today. So feel like the room is moving when it's not really moving.
    Hydrated can cause it.
    It got headaches, margins Ouch. Stupid margin leave me alone margins I don't want a headache.
    Can get a pills for the dam margins.

  41. I believe I have vertigo. Let me describe how it feels. If anyone of yall has ever been on a cruise ship for 7 days straight and the day you get off the ship it will still feel like your moving on the ship a little bit feeling that's how i feel when ,walking, laying down, and sitting up. When I lay down or sit down it feels like a little bit of rocking back and forth.😞 Oh and I first started off anemic and I believe that's what triggered it and now I'm left off feeling like I'm on a rocking ship but it wasn't as bad as it was in the beginning. In the beginning I was literally bumping into the wall.

  42. If I jump out of bed quickly I get dizzy for a few seconds and almost lose my balance, is that serious stuff?

  43. I am 13 turning 14 in two weeks and 3 days ago I started feeling a light dizziness so I went to go get some water. It didn’t go away though. The next day I woke up feeling better but it immediately came back that day, I started feeling pressure in my ears. I don’t know what it is, but I’m kinda worried. Vertigo runs in my family so I think it’s that, but what if it’s something worse

  44. Pls dnt listen to doctors who knows things by books. I spend alot of money in this disease but no solution, luckily i found indian ayur home remedies. Simple tips, boil 2 tablespoon of coriander seed with 7 /8 glass of water let be cold and drink it the whole day until spinning stop, . Do it few more days and discontinue once it ok, drink water , all due to dehydrate. This remedies also help to clean the kidneys, so dnt give over job to them. Take it of and on.
    All the best.

  48. Vertigo isn't painful but it is a very shitty feeling. The room is like spinning and sometimes you get nausea and you can barely walk. Even laying down makes it worse 😵

  49. Exuse me sir, can you get vertigo or something from a tonsillectomy days later? I got a tonsillectomy done 5 days ago, and ever since then my ear has been hurting with so much pressure I can even take a sip of water for medicine. Also I'm really nauseaus, i feel the world is literally spinning around me very often, and it feels like theres a cotton ball deep in my ear making my hearing foggy. I dont know what to do. Also I haven't eaten much, due to the fact that I just got throat surgery, so my mom says that's the reason I'm feeling like this, and I think it could be contributing but I feel like I need to go to the doctors and she wont listen to me

  50. @Elijah Ballack  – I was a vertigo patient. 3 times in 10 years. Recovered. It started to me by using continuously old model mobile with high radiation.

My vertigo is triggered by many things such as walking down the street ..sounds in traffic..fast lights..loud sounds.. Flying…riding in cars..watching movies..standing in open spaces..standing in lines.. Seeing certain views such as mountains or sky views. What can I do? I gag repeatedly outloud when it hits me and I feel very dizzy and it tickles my stomach so bad I have to hold my stomach. It's very embarrassing.

  56. Idk if its vertigo or i have heard it could be anxiety but its hard to explain so just stay with me….
    So it doesn't exactly feel like the world is spinning, more like the world is moving side to side. Or um like it feels like my eyes are rolling into my head but like its not (i really hope you can somehow understand). So yeah, its so scary. And its only when i lay down, standing up is a whole other thing. Standing still can feel like im going up on an elevator.
