Vertigo – causes, side effects and treatments at NaturalPedia.com

Thursday, July 12, 2018 by

Vertigo is a condition that causes dizziness which can last for a few minutes, several hours, or even days. Vertigo is more of a symptom rather than a standalone disease. It can occur when there is a problem with the inner ear, brain, or sensory nerve pathway. In addition, vertigo may occur due to other health problems such as anxiety disorders, low blood pressure, infections, some heart problems like cardiac arrhythmias, and hypoglycemia or low blood sugar.

The most common conditions that cause vertigo are benign positional vertigo, labyrinthitis, and Meniere’s disease. In rare cases, vertigo is caused by perilymphatic fistula or abnormal communication between the middle ear and the inner ear; cholesteatoma erosion or erosion caused by a cyst in the inner ear; and otosclerosis or abnormal bone growth in the middle ear. Vertigo can occur at any age, although it is common in people who are 65 years old and above.
