Disease A - Z > Vertigo > Homeopathic treatment for Vertigo
Vertigo is actually a symptom - a sensation that you or the room is spinning. Vertigo is an illusion of motion and is a problem seen increasingly in people as they age. It is usually temporary and a sign of some other problem or condition. Vertigo is a type of dizziness. There are several different types of vertigo that are considered conditions: benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, central vertigo, migrainous vertigo, peripheral vertigo and physiologic vertigo. Vertigo is one of the most common complaints for which people seek medical advice. See the Vertigo LearniVertigo implies that there is a sensation of motion either of the person or the environment. This should not be confused with symptoms of light headedness or fainting.
Vertigo can be caused by problems in the brain or the inner ear.
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common form of vertigo and is characterized by the sensation of motion initiated by sudden head movements or moving the head in a certain direction. This type of vertigo is rarely serious and can be treated.
Vertigo may also be caused by inflammation within the inner ear (labyrinthitis), which is characterized by the sudden onset of vertigo and may be associated with hearing loss. The most common cause of labyrinthitis is a viral or bacterial infection.
Meniere's disease is composed of a triad of symptoms: episodes of vertigo, ringing in the ears, and hearing loss. People have the abrupt onset of severe vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, as well as periods in which they are symptom-free.
Acoustic neuroma is a type of tumor that can cause vertigo. Symptoms include vertigo with one-sided ringing in the ear and hearing loss.
Vertigo can be caused by decreased blood flow to the base of the brain. Bleeding into the back of the brain (cerebellar hemorrhage) is characterized by vertigo, headache, difficulty walking, and inability to look toward the side of the bleed. The result is that the person's eyes gaze away from the side with the problem. Walking is also extremely impaired.
Vertigo is often the presenting symptom in multiple sclerosis. The onset is usually abrupt, and examination of the eyes may reveal the inability of the eyes to move past the midline toward the nose.
Head trauma and neck injury may also result in vertigo, which usually goes away on its own.
Migraine, a severe form of headache, may also cause vertigo. The vertigo is usually followed by a headache. There is often a prior history of similar episodes but no lasting problems.
The duration of symptoms can be from minutes to hours, and symptoms can be constant or episodic. The onset may be due to a movement or change in position. It is important to tell the doctor about any recent head trauma or whiplash injury as well as any new medications the patient is taking.
The patient may have hearing loss and a ringing sensation in the ears.
The patient might have visual disturbances, weakness, difficulty speaking, decreased level of conscious
The evaluation of vertigo consists primarily of a medical history and physical exam.
The history is comprised of four basic areas.
The doctor may perform tests such as a CT scan if a brain injury is suspected to be the cause of vertigo.
Blood tests to check blood sugar levels and the use of an electrocardiogram (ECG) to look at heart rhythm may also be helpful
Homeopathic medicines help increasing the blood flow to the brain, hence reversing the depleted circulation which most of the times is the cause of vertigo.
Vertigo is a presenting symptom for most of the chronic ailments, hence at Auroh we believe in treating the underlying chronic disease.
homeopathy discerns that the body has within it a controlling and defending force and power. It is only when this fighting power or resistance is disturbed, do we fall ill. The disease is thus not an affection of the parts but a disorder in the patient as a whole. Since one patient differs from another each requires a different medicine based on his individual and mental symptoms.
Homeopathy is highly recommended for such condition.
