How to identify symptoms of vertigo

Vertigo is often the result of an imbalance in your inner ear, also known as the “vestibular system.” Your vestibular system helps you maintain your balance and center of gravity by sending messages to your brain regarding the position you are in or the movements you are performing.

When the vestibular system is impaired, the messages to your brain are altered, and your movement becomes affected. You may feel like the world is spinning around you, you can’t focus your vision for prolonged periods, or you can’t stand/move appropriately without feeling like you’ll topple over.

Vertigo is a natural reaction when your body’s equilibrium is disrupted. This isn’t easy to manage because it interferes with your daily routine and way of life.

In more severe cases, vertigo can be a sign of medical conditions that need to be assessed immediately by a medical practitioner.

Keep a close watch out for the following symptoms:

  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Dual vision
  • Sweating
  • Abnormal eye movements

  • Weakness in the arms and legs
  • Vision and communication difficulties
  • Inability to concentrate or maintain alertness

If you recognize these symptoms, you should consult a Venice, FL physical therapist as soon as possible. Please click here to schedule an appointment with Agility Physical Therapy.

What’s causing my vertigo? How can I find vertigo relief?

There are several possible causes of vertigo. Some common causes of vertigo include:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): This is the most common cause of vertigo. It occurs when the tiny calcium crystals located in your ears become dislodged and move around to different parts of the ear that they are not supposed to be in.
  • Meniere’s disease: This condition occurs when fluid builds up in your ear(s). This typically includes ringing sounds in the ear and sudden waves of dizziness/vertigo that may last for hours. You may also experience momentary hearing loss.
  • Vestibular neuritis: This is an inner-ear infection that can cause vertigo.
  • Migraines: Migraines can impact your vestibular system, and may be coupled with sensitivities to light or sound, or may also impair your vision.
  • Stroke: A stroke affects movement in your whole body. If you recently suffered a stroke, you may experience waves of vertigo which may linger for extended periods of time.

Regardless of the source of your vertigo, our team of physical therapists at Agility Physical Therapy in Venice, FL can get to the root of the problem and provide cutting-edge treatments so you can find relief, once and for all!
