Vertigo

Vertigo is a symptom that can be caused by multiple diseases. It consists of a spinning sensation of objects or of the person who suffers. Sometimes the patient may feel a sensation of dizziness or unsteadiness similar to how it feels to go on a boat.

In all cases you must carefully study the origin and characteristics of symptoms, making an exhaustive exploration of balance and hearing.

Depending on each patient suffering from vertigo treatment and prognosis may be very different. You may need drug treatment (with drugs that vary depending on the case) by vestibular rehabilitation exercises, and maneuvers liberating.

In a small percentage of patients may need surgery.
