Vertigo is a symptom, rather than a condition itself. It's the sensation that you, or the environment around you are moving or spinning.This feeling may be barely noticeable, or it may be so severe that you find it difficult to keep your balance and do everyday tasks. Attacks of vertigo can develop suddenly and last for a few seconds, or they may last much longer. In severe vertigo, the symptoms may be constant and last for several days, making normal life very difficult.

Symptoms associated with vertigo:

  • Loss of balance – which can make it difficult to stand or walk
  • Feeling sick or being sick
  • Dizziness

Causes of vertigo :

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) – where certain head movements trigger vertigo
  • Vertebrobasilar Migraines
  • Labirynthitis – an inner ear infection
  • Vestibular neuronitis – inflammation of the vestibular nerve, which runs into the inner ear and sends messages to the brain that help to control balance
