Vertigo

We have all experienced, for a variety of reasons, the sensation of being dizzy. Dizziness is a catch-all term that can describe an assortment of symptoms from feeling woozy after a ride at the amusement park or feeling light-headed as you stand up from sitting, to a sensation of being unstable or feeling like you are going to faint.  Dizziness as a medical complaint is very common.  Some people, however, suffer with a more severe and specific type of dizziness called vertigo. Vertigo is the medical term used to describe a patient’s symptom of perceiving (falsely) that they are moving within their environment or that objects in their environment are moving around them.  This movement is generally described as a whirling, spinning or rotating type of motion.
