Top 10 Homeopathic Medicines for Vertigo with Nausea and Vomiting

Vertigo is a condition in which a person feels as if he/she is moving or the objects in the surrounding area are moving or revolving. In some cases, it could be attended with nausea and vomiting. It can arise from various reasons. The causes may include anxiety, low blood sugar, BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) and certain inner ear disorders. BPPV is an inner ear disorder leading to episodes of dizziness triggered by changes in the position of head like looking up or down, turning sitting in bed, or turning in bed. Nausea, vomiting and loss of balance can attend it. Inner ear disorders firstly include Meniere’s disease characterized by a triad of symptoms including vertigo spells; tinnitus means hearing noises in the ear in the absence of an external source like ringing, buzzing, humming noises and hearing loss. Other inner ear disorders include labyrinthitis (inflammation of labyrinth of inner ear involved in hearing and maintaining balance. It mainly results from viral or bacterial infections) and vestibular neuritis (inner ear disorder arising from inflammation of vestibular nerve that sends signals from inner ear to the brain about balance).

Another cause can be motion sickness. It arises from disturbance in the inner ear from repeated motion of a vehicle like car, train, bus, aeroplane, or boat. This results in dizziness, nausea, vomiting though some other symptoms may occur. Another cause can be migraines (it refers to throbbing type of one-sided headache attended with nausea and vomiting along with sensitivity to light and noise). Next reason could be cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) in which there appear severe episodes of nausea and vomiting in the absence of an infection or any other medical condition. Other symptoms include dizziness, sensitivity to light, diarrhea, and abdomen pain.

Vertigo with nausea and vomiting can also occur in cases of gastroenteritis (infection of the intestines that mainly causes diarrhea and vomiting and might cause dizziness as well in some cases). Certain neurological issues like stroke (a medical emergency in which interrupted oxygen supply to brain occurs causing the death of brain cells. It occurs from a blood clot in brain or from ruptured blood vessel in brain. Brain tumour can also result in vertigo with nausea and vomiting. Use of certain medicines (like insulin for diabetes treatment), food poisoning caused by consumption of contaminated food, or inhaling some toxic substances are some of the other causes.
