Common Signs and Symptoms of Vertigo

,

Atlanta GA Physical TherapistIf you’re suddenly experiencing balance and dizziness issues, you may have something called Vertigo. Vertigo is a feeling of being imbalanced. You may also be experiencing dizzy spells, having the sensation that you are spinning or the ground is spinning around you.

Vertigo is usually caused by an inner ear problem such as BPPV (calcium particle forming in the canals of your inner ear, Meniere’s disease (buildup of fluid and changing pressure in your ear), or Vestibular neuritis (an infection in the inner ear). You can also experience Vertigo if you have a head or neck injury, stroke or tumor. Some medications can cause ear damage. Migraine headaches can even lead to Vertigo.

In addition to imbalance and dizziness, there are other very specific signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing Vertigo.

  • You may begin feeling nauseated.
  • You probably will vomit, or feel like vomiting.
  • You may have nystagmus, which is abnormal movements or twitching of your eyes.
  • Some of these symptoms may be accompanied by a headache.
  • You may perspire more.
  • You probably will experience some hearing loss or ringing in your ears.
