Why is Vertigo caused ?

I 21year old male. Since from one year i am suffering from head rotating round. Even at sitting or at lay down position also. When placed at the edge of height areas it is more observable. Feels like some thing is rotating circularly in head. It worsens when i move head suddenly. Then some visual disturbances also there like blurring. Some times ringing sound in right ear and some times pain. Even in sleep if bad dreams come ,then woke up and rotating head at lay down position itself. Even loud speaking hurts. Also headache at back and top of the head. Eyes feeling weighted. This condition is regular from one year. Some times this is severe and sometimes no symptoms. Especially when i work hard or feel tension this is severe. Is this serious

Thanks for query,
It seems that you might have something wrong with ear or eyes.
If you have infection in middle ear or impacted wax in the ear you may get this type of sensation.
if there is refraction of error you feel vertigo.
In rare case extra rib in cervical region may produce this problem.
So consult ent,eye surgeon.
ok and bye.

Psychiatrist Dr. Jagadeesan's  Response
Head rotating is called "Vertigo". It can be due to Ear disease, commonly middle ear infection. Ringing of ears is called "Tinnitus", and being sensitive to soft sound all of these symptoms suggest middle ear pathology. Kindly consult nearest ENT specialist, if the problem is not solved further investigations and neuropsychiatric assessment might be required....Good Luck
