Vertigo – What happens when the world around you spins?????
A study discovered that 20-30% of the population seems to have Vertigo. Vertigo is a symptom when you feel light-headed or feel a spinning motion around you even though you are standing still. This happens when your blood pressure level varies. Some people experience vertigo when they make a sudden movement such as getting up or lying down quickly.
So what causes vertigo? If there is a slight imbalance in the inner ear, the vestibular nerve or in the nerve senses of the brain, you start to get a dizzy feeling altogether. Solely responsible for the stimulating the senses and maintaining the focus point of visualization as and when the body moves, vestibular system plays an important role in maintaining the balance of the ear-brain connectivity. There are basically three types of Vertigo – subjective, objective and pseudovertigo. When you feel dizzy and feel that you are moving, it is subjective and if you feel that the things around you are motioning, it is called objective vertigo. The third one – pseudo vertigo happens when the person has an intense feeling in his head itself.
Treatment and Diagnosis for Vertigo
Though there are no particular treatment for Vertigo, your ENT specialist (ear, nose and throat) may ask you to consume some medications. If you are suffering from labyrinthitis (inflammation in the labyrinth of the inner ear) due to some viral infection, it is better to leave it rather than probe with any object as it will clear up on its own. In rare cases where bacterial infection is high, antibiotics are prescribed or by vestibular rehabilitation training (VRT).
