Dizziness – Common Vestibular Disorders
Approximately 2 million Americans suffer from dizziness each year.
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
Caused when crystals, called otoconia, collect within a part of the inner ear. Head movement displaces the otoconia sending false signals to the brain.
The most common symptom of BPPV is positional vertigo.
Labyrinthitis and Vestibular Neuronitis
Caused by an inflammation of the inner ear or portion of vestibulocochlear nerve responsible for balance. This is most often due to a viral infection.
Presents as a sudden episode of vertigo typically with nausea and vomiting.
Consists of dizziness or vertigo with or without headache that is suspected to be related to migraines.
Vestibular symptoms may include motion intolerance, sensitivity to light and/or sound, nausea or positional vertigo.
