Coping with recurring vertigo


An attack of vertigo feels like the world is spinning around you or moving in some way. The flare-ups can last anywhere from minutes to months, depending on the cause. Recurring vertigo usually is caused by a disorder involving the vestibular (balance) system, which includes several tiny, fluid-filled canals, called the semicircular canals inside your ears. See your doctor to rule out temporary causes of vertigo, such as a medication side effect. If vertigo persists, you may need to see an ear, nose, and throat doctor, who can determine if a balance-related disorder is to blame. Getting a vestibular disorder under control with medication may be the first step in treatment. #recurringvertigo #vertigotreatment #vertigoawareness
