Vertigo is a sensation where you feel as though everything is moving even when you're standing perfectly still. It is a specific kind of dizziness like swaying, turning, or spinning. This sensation causes you to lose your balance and position. This health ailment is the result of problems with the vestibular system. The inner ear and your brain are responsible for balance and eye movements. The most common disorder with vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. The condition is caused by a tiny calcium particle being loose in the inner ear. In this disorder, a change in the head’s position can trigger dizziness.
A very telling sign of vertigo is a sense that the world around you is spinning. It feels like everything is tilted. Distorted balance makes it difficult to walk or even stand. A feeling of imbalance creates the sensation of being pulled in a particular direction. Stumbling, poor coordination, the head remaining in a tilted position, and trouble maintaining a straight posture are symptoms.
