Common Causes of Dizziness
While dizziness may not seem like a dangerous symptom at first, a chronic sense of vertigo could be an indication of a more serious medical problem.
Benign Positional Vertigo - BPV
The most common inner ear disorder produces short bursts of vertigo associated with change of position of the head.
A very common chronic inner ear condition producing hearing loss, pressure in the ear, tinnitus and vertigo spells that last hours. Attacks will vary in intensity and frequency but can be quite severe.
Inflammation of the Inner Ear
Vestibular Neuritis produces abrupt onset of vertigo without hearing loss that is protracted.
Much more recognized now as a common cause of vertigo attacks in migraine patients. Might have no association with a headache. Spells may seem exactly like an inner ear attack.
While hearing loss and tinnitus are the most common symptoms of these benign tumors of the balance nerve, chronic imbalance may be present and subtle.
