Hi!!!!You are probably suffering from Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
(BPPV) which is a disorder arising in the inner ear
. Its symptoms are repeated episodes of positional vertigo, that is, of a spinning sensation caused by changes in the position of the head. BPPV is the most common cause of the symptoms of vertigo. BPPV is one of the most common vestibular disorders in patients presenting with dizziness
is implicated in idiopathic cases. Proposed mechanisms linking the two are genetic factors and vascular damage to the labyrinth.
Although BPPV can occur at any age, it is most often seen in people over the age of 60. Besides aging, there are no major risk factors known for developing BPPV, although previous episodes of trauma to the head or inner ear infections known as labyrinthitis
, may predispose individuals to future development of BPPV.
The condition is diagnosed by the patient's history, and by performing the Dix-Hallpike maneuver and/or the roll test. Patients with BPPV will report a history of vertigo as a result of fast head movements.
Another probability is Ménière disease is a syndrome in which you experience episodes of spinning vertigo (sense of the room spinning), hearing loss
, and tinnitus
(ringing in the ear). Between the unpredictable attacks, you usually do not have any problems or symptoms of the disease.
Labyrinthitis means an inflammation of the inner ear structure called the labyrinth. Your eyes also send positioning information to your brain. When information from the labyrinth and the eyes don't match, the brain has trouble interpreting what is happening.This misinterpreting often leads to a sensation that you are spinning (vertigo) or a feeling that you are moving when in fact you are remaining still.
So,rule out these three possibilites......u ll b sorted.....
