What's Causing My Vertigo?

Episodes of vertigo can be scary for those affected, and it’s confusing if you don’t know what’s happening. It may be more than just a headache if any of the following are true:

  • You feel like your head is spinning.
  • You have difficulty walking in a straight line.
  • You feel tugged in one direction.
  • Your ears are ringing.
  • Your sense of hearing has diminished.
  • You are experiencing jerky eye movements.

Call (732) 333-6360 to connect with a member of our Monmouth County physical therapy team today if you are experiencing these or any other signs of vertigo.

Common Causes of Vertigo

Vertigo has a number of common culprits, including:

  • Migraines
  • Ear damage
  • Brain tumors
  • Stroke
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Calcium buildup in the inner ear (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)
  • Inner ear disorders that create fluid buildup and pressure imbalances
  • Viral infection in the inner ear

In some cases, vertigo can even result from a combination of the above, such as a simultaneous head injury and inner ear issue. Because inner ear problems are tough to diagnose on your own, it is important to consult with a licensed professional and receive an official diagnosis before pursuing treatment.
