What is acute dizziness?
Dizziness is when you feel like you or everything around you is spinning. It’s more than just dizziness and can affect your balance. According to the NHS, a dizzy spell can last from a few seconds to hours and last for days or months in people with severe dizziness.
Acute means the symptoms are severe.
What Causes Dizziness?
Dizziness is usually caused by inner ear problems, such as B. the following
- Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) – in which certain head movements cause dizziness
- Labyrinthitis – an inner ear infection caused by a cold or flu virus
- Vestibular Neuritis – Inflammation of the vestibular nerve
- Meniere’s disease – a rare condition of the inner ear sometimes associated with ringing in the ears (tinnitus) or hearing loss
Is dizziness just a fear of heights?
Dizziness is often used to describe a fear of heights, but that’s wrong—fear of heights and feeling dizzy when looking down from a height is called acrophobia.
In Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 film Vertigo, the detective suffers from both a fear of heights and vertigo.
What are the symptoms of dizziness?
Dizziness is itself a symptom of a disease. But people who suffer from dizziness may also have the following symptoms:
- loss of balance
- Feeling sick or being sick
People who suffer from dizziness are encouraged to lie in a quiet, dark room, sit down if they get dizzy, and move their head slowly and carefully.
At night, people should turn on the light when they get up, sleep with two or more pillows, and slowly get out of bed.
