Spinning syndrome

Vertigo is often confused with a fear of heights. However, the dizzy feeling when you look down from a high place is not the same as vertigo, which can occur at any time, and may last for many years. Mild vertigo is very common, and symptoms are not serious. However, recurrent or persistent vertigo could be caused by an underlying condition. People with vertigo may have sudden sensations of spinning or whirling motion that may be accompanied by light-headedness and loss of balance, and less often by sweating, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting.

First steps

According to one authority, certain chronic or repetitive body positions may produce painful nodules, called trigger points, in the muscles of the head and neck, which can lead to dizziness and possibly vertigo. These positions include forward bending of the neck as when sleeping on two pillows, backward neck bending as when painting a ceiling, and turning the neck to one side as in some reading positions.

Attacking the problem deep down

Numerous preliminary reports suggest certain "vestibular rehabilitation" exercises may help some cases of vertigo. These exercises were also found to be effective in relieving vertigo(http://concernrelated.mitamins.com/Skin-Hair-Nail/Vitiligo-relief.html). While vestibular rehabilitation exercises may be done at home, initial guidance by a qualified practitioner is necessary. Research indicates some cases of vertigo are related to spinal disorders affecting the head and neck. Other vertigo treatments(http://conditionsinfo.mitamins.com/Skin-Hair-Nail/Vitiligo-Treatments.html), such as spinal manipulation and combined exercise and massage can result in improvement of vertigo symptoms.

Alternative science

In a preliminary study of people with migraine headaches, most of whom (83%) also experienced vertigo, a combined and individualized approach using dietary changes, medication, physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and acupuncture is advised. In addition, many reports suggest acupuncture may help to reduce the symptoms of vertigo. It's definitely worth giving alternative science a chance to treat vertigo and its symptoms.
