Countless individuals struggle with these symptoms daily; while they can be uncomfortable at best and even disabling in some cases, it's important to remember that there is relief available! ENT and Allergy Associates has experience treating dizziness and vertigo and can help you get these frustrating and stressful episodes under control.
Understanding Dizziness & Vertigo
Many patients use the term "dizziness" to describe disruptive sensations in their balance. However, this term encompasses a range of symptoms, including fatigue, visual disturbances, confusion, vertigo, and more. It can be challenging for patients to accurately convey their experiences. As a result, specialists in dizziness aim to identify the specific type of "dizziness" that patients are experiencing. Our team is dedicated to gaining a comprehensive understanding of your symptoms to provide the best possible care.
Two Common Causes of Vertigo
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
- At times, particles can accumulate or settle inside the semicircular canals of the inner ear. These particles typically end up at the canal's lowest point. When undergoing specific positional changes like rolling to one side while asleep, the canal's orientation can alter, causing particles to move and settle at a new "bottom." This occurrence leads to a short-lived sensation of vertigo or "room spinning" that lasts under a minute. As compassionate professionals, we understand how disruptive vertigo can be and are here to help.
- If you're experiencing vertigo that lasts for multiple days, it could be due to a viral infection in your balance nerve. This may then lead to a longer period of imbalance. Rest assured, we're here to provide professional and compassionate care.
Vertigo can also have less common causes related to both the ears and the nervous system. The team at ENT and Allergy Associates can explore these other potential issues to get to the bottom of what is causing your vertigo.
