Vertigo is a disease, which occurs due to the patient having problems in the posterior semicircular canals of the inner ear-medically known as the vestibular labyrinth area of the ear. Patients suffering from vertigo will experience an abnormal sensation that causes them to feel as though their surrounding environment is continuously spinning, whirling or moving. As a result of this, the vertigo patient suffers from loss of balance or a sensation of nausea that may grow acute.
Common Causes of Vertigo
Due to the free-floating calcium carbonate crystals in the posterior semicircular canals of the inner ear
An infection in the ear for example syphilis
Acute head injury
Insufficient blood supply to brain
