Vertigo


About
Dizziness, lightheadedness, or faintness may indicate Vertigo. Nausea and loss of hearing may be present as well. Usually it is the indication of an underlying condition.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • In some cases (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), exercises are required, and in extreme cases, surgery.
  • See your doctor if nystagmus (jerky, rapid eye movements) accompanies your vertigo.
  • Slight dizziness can sometimes be attributed to lack of oxygen, especially at high altitudes.
  • The following activities may cause feelings of dizziness: action movies, amusement park rides, sailing, and certain video games.
  • When dizziness is accompanied by difficult breathing, swallowing, or thinking straight, if you feel numb or tingly, or if you lose your vision, see your doctor immediately as you may be having a stroke.
  • When nausea, sweating, and pale complexion with racing heartbeat are present along with dizziness, see your doctor immediately. You could be in having a heart attack or a hypoglycemic attack. Other causes of dizziness include blood pressure drop and hypotension.


Advice
  • Check with your doctor if you think medication may be the cause of your dizziness.
  • Constant spells of dizziness should be brought to your doctor's attention. It could indicate a more serious health issue.
  • Control your dizzy spells by sitting still and focusing on a certain object for a few minutes.
  • Do not consume alcohol, nicotine, fried foods, or caffeine.
  • Do not consume more than 2,000 mg of salt each day.
  • Move carefully and slowly. Try not to move too quickly.
