Vertigo is a sensation of spinning. A person suffering from this condition may feel like he/she is spinning and the world around him/her is spinning. The condition is caused by an inner ear infection. There are many inner ear problems that can lead to vertigo such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo - BPPV - where tiny calcium particles get collected in the inner ear, Meniere's disease - where fluid builds up inside the ear and changes the pressure, and Vestibular neuritis - an inner ear problem caused by a virus.
The symptoms of vertigo include spinning, swaying, becoming unbalanced, tilting, and being pulled in one direction. The treatment for vertigo may depend on the actual cause of the condition. Most of the time, it disappears without any treatment. If you have the above-mentioned symptoms, it is best that you consult your GP for proper diagnosis and treatment.
