DIZZINESS & VERTIGO
DO THINGS APPEAR TO BE SPINING WHILE STANDING OR WALKING?
Do you ever feel as if the world is spinning around you and you can’t seem to find your footing? Is your dizziness interfering with your everyday life?
We’ve all experienced dizziness, especially when rising too rapidly. It’s as if you can’t focus, see straight, or stand properly without wobbling or falling. You may even get “tunnel vision,” in which your peripheral vision goes dark for a few seconds.
Dizziness is quite prevalent and can happen because of various factors. It is commonly associated with “lightheadedness,” which gives the impression of being unstable. Vertigo is slightly different because it is frequently a reaction to physiological factors causing your body to balance. If you’ve ever had vertigo, you may recall feeling as if you’re “rocking” or “spinning,” even when you’re completely still.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF MY DIZZINESS?
Several factors might cause a person to feel dizzy; lack of sleep, poor nutrition, overexertion, or physical ailments, such as a head cold or the flu. Dizziness can occur due to something as simple as rising too soon after a long rest or not drinking enough water.
The following are symptoms of vertigo:
- Loss of equilibrium
- dizzy or faint Feeling
- Temporary eyesight impairment (i.e., tunnel vision)
- Heavy-headedness or lightheadedness
CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS VERTIGO
The vestibular system assists you in maintaining your balance and center of gravity by transmitting movement related messages with the brain. When this message is impaired, it can cause movement impediment; this is called vertigo. The most prevalent cause of vertigo is an imbalance in the inner ear, often known as the “vestibular system.”
Many people suffer from vertigo for weeks before recognizing they need to contact a doctor about it. People frequently claim that the world will not stop spinning or will be unable to focus their eyesight for extended periods. They often can’t stand or move correctly without feeling as if they’re about to fall over. These symptoms might make a person feel weak and helpless in their own body.
VERTIGO CAN BE DUE TO VARIOUS FACTORS, INCLUDING:
BENIGN PAROXYSMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO (BPPV)
The cause of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV); it happens when microscopic calcium crystals in your ears become displaced and travel to various sections of your ear where they are not needed; this might result in unexpected spinning sensations (vertigo) and inner-ear pain.
This illness develops when fluid accumulates in one or both of your ears; this usually consists of “ringing” in your ear and brief bouts of extreme dizziness that can continue for hours. You may also have temporary hearing loss.
Migraine headaches can also affect your vestibular system, resulting in bouts of vertigo accompanied by sensitivity to light or sound. Vision may also be affected.
Vestibular neuritis is an infection of the inner ear that can cause vertigo.
A stroke is a neurological condition that impairs mobility throughout the body. If you have just had a stroke, you may have waves of vertigo that last for an extended period.
THERE ARE VARIOUS SIGNS OF VERTIGO THAT YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF, INCLUDING:
- Abnormal eye motions
- Weakness in one’s arm or leg
- Inability to concentrate or stay awake
- Vomiting or nausea
- Doubtful vision
- Difficulties seeing or communicating
