What Is Dizziness?

Dizziness is a term used to describe a range of sensations that make a person feel unsteady or lightheaded. It can manifest as a feeling of spinning, wooziness, or disorientation. Dizziness can be a temporary inconvenience or a chronic condition, and it can significantly impact a person’s daily life by causing difficulty with balance, coordination, and concentration. Treatment for dizziness typically depends on the underlying cause and may include lifestyle changes, medication, or physical therapy.

What Causes Dizziness?

Dizziness happens when you feel unsteady or like the room is spinning around you. There are many things that can cause dizziness, like inner ear problems, certain medications, low blood pressure, not drinking enough water, and feeling really anxious or stressed. Sometimes, dizziness can be a sign of a more serious problem, like a heart issue or a brain tumor. If you keep feeling dizzy, it’s important to talk to a doctor to figure out what’s causing it.

What Is Vertigo? 

Vertigo is a type of dizziness that causes a feeling of spinning or movement, even when you’re not moving. With nearly 40% of adults experiencing vertigo at some point in their life, this common ailment can range from being slightly annoying to absolutely debilitating. 

Symptoms of vertigo may include a spinning sensation, difficulty with balance and coordination, nausea, vomiting, and sweating. Vertigo can be a temporary or chronic condition, and it can significantly impact a person’s daily life by causing difficulty with routine activities, such as driving, working, or even just standing up. Treatment for vertigo typically depends on the underlying cause and may include medications, physical therapy, or lifestyle modifications.

What Causes Vertigo?

The most common cause of vertigo is BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), which occurs when small calcium crystals in the inner ear become dislodged and move into the ear canal, triggering sensations of spinning or tilting. Other inner ear problems, such as Meniere’s disease, vestibular neuritis, and labyrinthitis, can also cause vertigo. Vertigo can also be a side effect of certain medications, such as those used to treat seizures, high blood pressure, or depression. In some cases, vertigo may be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, such as a brain injury, tumor, or stroke. Other possible causes of vertigo include head trauma, migraines, and anxiety disorders.
