Dizziness and Vertigo: Know the Difference Video

**Dizziness and Vertigo: Know the Difference** Dizziness is a feeling of being lightheaded, faint, weak or unsteady. Dizziness makes you feel momentarily unbalanced and can range from mild dizzy spells to a serious condition. These dizzy spells often stop or improve when you lie down. Vertigo is a feeling that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving when there is no actual body movement. The main difference is that vertigo can cause nausea or vomiting and loss of balance. There may be difficulty in walking which can cause you to lose your balance and fall, resulting in injuries. Vertigo is usually caused by a problem in the inner ear, the vestibular system that controls our balance. The word vertigo comes from the Latin “verter” which means to turn. The most common form of vertigo is the Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).
