what causes Vertigo?


Vertigo could be either from a peripheral (labyrinth or vestibular nerve-think inner ear) or a central disorder (central nervous system). Causes of vertigo include a huge laundry list but the most common is Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) characterized by the brief sensation of motion lasting 15 seconds to a few minutes. This may be described as a sudden attack of vertigo. It may be initiated by sudden head movements or moving the head in a certain direction, such as rolling over in bed. This type of vertigo is rarely serious and can be treated with vestibular rehab or medications commonly used to treat motion sickness. I highly recommended consulting with your Primary Care MD to first rule out the cause of vertigo for treatment moving forward.

If you suddenly feel tilt or whirl for no apparent reason then the chances are you have vertigo. Vertigo often causes sudden dizziness and a feeling like you're spinning or the world around you is spinning. The most common causes of vertigo that I know of are an inner ear infection, BPPV, vestibular neuritis, and Meniere's disease, majorly vertigo is seen in older people. My old man has it and uses Cannabidiol oil aka CBD oil for nausea, vomiting and headache. So I usually buy it in bulk.
