Vertigo is the spinning feeling that can appear even if the person affected is actually sitting. The environment seems to move vertically or horizontally, and the feeling can be light or so severe that can cause one to fall to the ground. Vertigo is more serious than dizziness, but it is not a severe health problem. Vertigo can happen suddenly and last for few minutes or can appear and disappear for a period of time. For some people suffering from severe vertigo, the symptoms can last for days and the usual activities can be difficult to maintain. The intensity of vertigo symptoms can vary and these include: the feeling of spinning around, nausea, difficulty in walking, the feeling that the floor is moving. Some of the causes include viral infections affecting the inner ear, otitis, cervical arthritis, migraines, poor blood flow, hyperventilation, movement sickness, alcohol and drug consumption.
