Dizziness and Vertigo
Patients who suffer from dizziness can undergo accompanying symptoms such as nausea, feelings of imbalance, or feelings of faintness. It can come unexpectedly and may go away with no treatment.
Dizziness can be caused by dehydration, overheating, motion sickness, poor circulation, medication, or an infection. Vertigo is caused by an inner ear imbalance, when your brain receives signals that are not consistent with your inner ear sensations.
Vertigo is often diagnosed as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), a condition that causes a false sensation of spinning or feeling of faintness.
Episodes of vertigo are caused by sudden movements of the head,
such as abruptly sitting up in bed or jerking your head quickly.
Migraine sufferers can be affected by vertigo.
If you are suffering from dizziness or vertigo, there are natural remedies you
can seek without turning to prescribed drugs or medications. Sometimes,
feelings of dizziness will subside over time, but if your symptoms persist, then try
some of the following treatments:
1). Move slowly and avoid bending over
2). Drink fluids to keep yourself hydrated
3). Sleep and try to maintain a consistent sleep schedule
4). Avoid coffee, cigarettes, and alcohol
5). Lie down in a dark room if you are experiencing vertigo
If the above natural treatments do not work, come into Novera and we will assess
your situation and set you on a path toward healing. Dr. Taves may recommend
certain head maneuvering techniques that will re-balance the calcium crystals in
your ear that are causing your inner ear imbalance.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, consult a doctor: frequent
vomiting or nausea, fainting, shortness of breath, seizures, stiff neck, or severe
headaches or migraines.
