Zweig Hearing
Vertigo is the feeling of dizziness and imbalance, often accompanied by nausea and an unsteady feeling. The sensation you feel after getting off a carnival ride or spinning around quickly is similar to vertigo, but this condition can occur without any specific event. Vertigo can put you at risk of falls and other injuries, impacting your health and quality of life. If you have vertigo symptoms and want relief, Julie Zweig, MD Integrative Sleep & ENT offers vertigo treatment at our medical center in Alpharetta, GA.

What Causes Vertigo?

Much of your balance depends on the inner ear. If there is too much fluid or inflammation in this area, it can impact your balance. The inner ear, nerves and brain all impact balance – if there are conditions or injuries to these components, you may experience vertigo. Some of the possible ear problems that can cause vertigo include:

  • Ear infections – viral or bacterial
  • Trauma to the ear
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Tumors

There are other possible causes of vertigo that are not related to the ear – migraine headaches, strokes and low brain blood flow can all impact balance and create vertigo symptoms.

Relieving Vertigo Symptoms

If you have vertigo symptoms that continue for more than a few days, you should seek medical treatment from an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist. The most common causes of vertigo are related to the ear – a thorough ear examination can determine what type of treatment you may need. Some of the possible treatments include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Treatment for an underlying condition (i.e., ear infection)
  • Epley maneuver
  • Ear surgery
