Vertigo

Symptoms: 

Vertigo is a symptom rather than a condition itself. It's the sensation that you, or the environment around you, is moving or spinning. Other symptoms that may accompany vertigo include:

  • Feeling nauseated
  • Abnormal or jerking eye movements (nystagmus)
  • Headache
  • Sweating
  • Ringing in the ears or hearing loss
Tests to diagnose: 

The following tests may be done:

  • Eye movement testing: watch the path of your eyes when you track a moving object.
  • Posturography testing: helps to recognize which parts of the balance system you rely on the most and which parts may be giving you problems
  • Rotary-chair testing: During this test, you sit in a computer-controlled chair that moves very slowly in a full circle. 
Treatment: 

The treatment includes:

  • Vestibular rehabilitation
  • BPPV:  Treatment of BPPV involves a simple procedure in which your doctor or physical therapist maneuvers the position of your head (canalith repositioning). This procedure is usually effective after one or two treatments.
  • Diuretics (water pills) may be prescribed to reduce pressure from fluid buildup.
  • Anxiety disorders: Your doctor may suggest medications and psychotherapy, either alone or in combination, to help you deal with your anxiety and manage your dizzines
