Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query here.
you are saying about is called vertigo-more specifically a positional vertigo. Vertigo is a sense of spinning or whirling movement. It is very common in females than males and its presence increases with age. It is because of an imbalance in the inner ear
or the vestibular system
. Most of the times it is associated with nausea
and it increases in the cold environment. Vertigo can be seen in BPPV-Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo,Menieres disease, inner ear pathology. Alcohol consumption sometimes may cause vertigo. In severe cases it is associated with blurring of vision and difficulty in speech
The most common is BPPV. It can be diagnosed by an ENT surgeon who will check the inner ear and the vestibular system. The treatment depends on the root cause of the vertigo. BPPV can be treated by vertin of 4 or 8mg per a day. Meniers disease needs a thorough evaluation. In severe cases surgery is indicated.
Please take an appointment with ENT doc untill then avoid stuping forward, bending down and sudden turning of the head sideways. These will aggravate the problem.
Hope this helps to you.
