 Causes Behind Vertigo

1. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): It is the most common cause behind vertigo. In this case, vertigo occurs from a sudden change in head position. For example, it may trigger from moving head up or down or turning in bed.  BPPV happens when calcium particles that are present in utricle move into semi-circular canal of inner ear that control balance. On head movement, these particles touch and stimulate the cilia (sensory hair cells via which the body’s balance and position information is signalled to brain) of these canals. Due to this, wrong information is processed about body’s position resulting in vertigo.

2. Labyrinthitis: Inflammation or infection of labyrinth which is part of inner ear

3. Vestibular neuritis: Inflammation of vestibular nerve that processes signal to brain about balance

4. Meniere’s disease: An inner ear disorder that causes triad of complaints including vertigo, tinnitus (noises in ear) and hearing loss.

5. Cholesteatoma: A cyst growing in middle ear behind the eardrum

6. Migraine headache: One-sided severe throbbing headache attended with nausea vomiting. Sensitivity to noise, light, odors can be there. Vertigo can also attend these symptoms.

7. Otosclerosis: Condition arising from abnormal bone growth in the middle ear

8. Ear surgery, head/neck injury, low blood pressure, certain medicines which damage ear for example diuretics, salicylates, aminoglycoside antibiotics and stroke (damage to brain from interrupted blood supply to brain)

What Symptoms May Accompany Vertigo?

Persons who have vertigo feel as if they are spinning or objects around them are moving or they are swaying or feeling unbalanced. They may have some other symptoms as well depending on the cause behind vertigo. These include nausea, vomiting, balance issues, headache, noises in ears (tinnitus), fullness sensation in ears, sweating and nystagmus (rapid, repetitive, involuntary eye movement).

      My name is Aditi clinical psychologist,I am 31yrs old and facing the problem of vertigo while lying down or getting up,I feel things moving around, earlier I had a lot of vomiting also.kindly guide .

  2. Hello!

    Thank you for your activity!
    My name is Valery, 46 years old.

    In the spring of 22, attacks of dizziness began, sometimes with vomiting, this was preceded by an increasing noise in the left ear, which appeared earlier.

    Over time, the attacks were repeated and repeated. They vary in severity, but sometimes you can’t get out of them for a week, plus recovery from them. Sometimes they are accompanied by surges in pressure, the last time, the other day, the pressure dropped… The head becomes “non-working”, sometimes too light, sometimes cottony and painful.

    Passed the checks. Meniere’s disease was diagnosed. There is practically no hearing in the affected ear, only noise and congestion on the left. The right hearing is also not perfect. They are treated with betaserc and diuretics, there is a drug for high blood pressure, if necessary.

    Among the common and long-standing problems – poor vision since childhood, with major problems with the right eye – the entire field of vision is practically closed there. The left one is very nearsighted.

    Also a problem with the liver – first they talked about hepatitis C, then about Gilbert and fatty liver. Enlarged prostate.
    I am prone to excess weight, I gain it easily, especially due to immobility in recent years.
    Weight now 94, height 176 cm.

    I have eliminated salt from my diet and have been watching my sweets and carbohydrates lately.
    Interested in consultation and your answer.

    Is it possible to choose homeopathic treatment? What do you recommend taking?

    Thank you for your attention and help!
