A Natural Approach to Better Health

Vertigo is often triggered by a change in the position of your head. The people who are generally suffering from vertigo experience symptoms which include spinning; tilting and swaying unbalanced or sometimes pulled in one particular direction. There are some other symptoms of vertigo which includes nausea condition, abnormal or jerking eye movement, headache, sweating ringing in the ear or hearing losses.  The most common and frustrating complaints patients bring to their family physicians is dizziness and these dizziness could be of four different types which includes vertigo, lightheadedness, presyncope and disequilibrium. The most prevalent among them is vertigo which involves a false sense of motion and accounts for 54 percent of reports of dizziness in primary care.

There are many Vertigo management clinics in Delhi all of which are associated to big and major hospitals and have been a key specialty area helpful in generating revenue for the hospital and clinics. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also a kind of vertigo and it usually comes on when people change position, such as bending over to pick something up, turning over in bed or moving their head quickly. The cause appears to be from a calcium deposition in the vestibular system, thereby blocking fluid in the canals. There are a series of head turning maneuvers done in the doctor’s office and at home to move debris particles from one part of the inner ear to an area where they will not affect balance for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. Vertigo could be caused either due to peripheral or central disturbances. The central causes of vertigo are mainly due to brain or spinal cord while peripheral vertigo is caused due to inner ear. The inner ear could get inflamed because of illness or small crystals or stones found normally within the inner ear. Such conditions developed in inner ear are known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. The regular medication for vertigo includes Meclizine and Dimenhydrinate and has been effective in many cases of vertigo. For treating Meniere’s disease one could be given 50 mg IM for acute attack of vertigo.
