Differential diagnosis of Vertigo
Vertigo can be caused by multiple reasons. The most common among them are:
• BPPV- It is one the common causes of vertigo and is typically observed when there is a change in position as the name suggests. It usually lasts for less than a minute and can be cured with the help of repositioning movements.
• Vestibular Migraine-It is the second most common cause and occurs when there is an association between vertigo and migraines.
• Ménière's disease usually has vertigo occurring along with it and often ends in loss of hearing with the worsening of the disease.
• Vestibular neuritis-caused due to viral infections in the inside of the ear, it often results in lifelong balance problems.
• Motion Sickness-It is a common symptom of vertigo usually seen in people with ear infections. Dizziness and feeling lightheaded are the symptoms involved. Sometimes the eyes jerk very fast to one side. Symptoms disappear if the person sits still with eyes closed.
