Vertigo or dizziness is a very common symptom. It is described very differently from one person to another and can vary from a spinning sensation to a sensation of walking on a boat to a sensation of floating. The feeling may last anywhere from seconds to hours to months. Sometimes dizziness originates from a problem in the ear but not always. Other factors contributing to dizziness can include medications, visual disturbance, high or low blood pressure, cardiovascular problems and even migraines, among others. Through detailed description of your symptoms and physical exam, your skilled ENT will be able to help you understand if your symptoms are coming from your ear and how this can be treated if it is the case. We work closely with our partnered vestibular physiotherapists who can often be of help in cases of vertigo.
