Vertigo causes you to feel the sensation of you or the objects you see around you. Generally, nausea, vomiting and balance disorders can cause this condition.

This disease often causes dizziness. However, not every dizziness is vertigo. Among the symptoms of vertigo, especially acute ear infections, vertigo may occur with inflammation of the inner ear.

The cause of this disease is identified and treatment is started.

What are the Causes of Vertigo?

Although dizziness in everyday language is used for symptoms such as the feeling of fainting and blackout, clinical sense of vertigo is defined as the feeling that the elements of the environment are turning to the person while he is standing.

For example, a person who is literally dizzy perceives the furniture and walls in the room he is in as if they are spinning. Causes of vertigo in this sense are examined in two groups: Central dizziness: It is caused by problems in the central nervous system.

In particular, dizziness originating from the brain, brain stem and cerebellum are examined in this group. Vertigo can be seen as a symptom of some diseases such as bleeding, stroke, migraine, tumor, multiple sclerosis (MS) that may occur in these organs. Peripheral dizziness: Dizziness originating from the inner ear and balance nerve are considered in this group. Peripheral vertigo, which is more common than central vertigo, includes vertigo caused by the labyrinth and semicircular canals, vertigo caused by disorders of the balance nerve, vertigo caused by the inability to locate the stones called utricle and saccule, which provide balance, and conditions such as Meniere's disease.

How does vertigo pass, what are the treatment methods?

In benign positional vertigo, vertigo type with crystal play can be treated with correction maneuvers. There are maneuvers applied in bening positional vertigo. It can be diagnosed with the Dix-Halpike test and corrected with the Epley maneuver. Patients should not be given drugs before maneuvers. Correction maneuvers are in the form of sessions.

In the first sessions, maneuvers are performed until the dizziness subsides. Afterwards, the sessions can be repeated every 4-5 days. The recurrence time varies according to the patient. If the dizziness is very severe and there has been crystal play in several canals in the ear, drug treatment is also applied at the same time.

What should those with vertigo pay attention to?

Sleep pattern should be at the top of the elements that those with vertigo should pay attention to. Irregular and insufficient sleep invites people to rest and many diseases, including vertigo.

Everyone should pay attention to regular and adequate sleep. Stress should be avoided, that is, the factors that cause stress should be removed from the person's life. It is important to stay away from stress, as excessive stress also negatively affects the immune system. It is possible to be protected from many diseases related to vertigo with a strong immune system.

For this reason, healthy and fresh foods should be consumed, excessive salty, oily and processed foods should be avoided. The normal levels of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D, also ensure a strong immunity. After vertigo treatment, active sports and sudden movements should be avoided. Drink plenty of fluids, avoid caffeine-containing foods and drinks such as coffee, cola and chocolate, and stop smoking.
