VERTIGO - Causes, Symptoms, Types and Homeopathic Treatment

VERTIGO - Causes, Symptoms, Types and Homeopathic Treatment

What is Vertigo and what causes it?

Vertigo:

Vertigo is a sensation or feeling of spinning around and losing one’s balance even though there is no movement in you or environment.

What causes vertigo?

If the vertigo is caused by problems in the brain or central nervous system it is referred as central vertigo and if the vertigo is caused by problems in inner ear, then it is termed as a peripheral vertigo.

The labyrinth of the inner ear has tiny organs that allow messages to be sent to the brain in response to gravity. By intimating our brains about the movement from the vertical position, we are able to maintain balance or equilibrium. Disturbance to this system therefore produces vertigo that can be created by inflammation among other causes.

vertigo

The inflammation can be observed in the following conditions -

Labyrinthitis:

This is inflammation of labyrinth and vestibular nerve (the nerve that is responsible for encoding the body’s motion and position)

Vestibular neuronitis:

This is due to inflammation of the vestibular nerve.

Meniere’s disease:

It is a disorder of the inner ear that is characterized by episodes of vertigo, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), hearing loss, and fullness in the ear. The cause of Meniere’s disease is unclear but likely involves both genetic and environmental factors. A number of theories exist for why it occurs including constrictions in blood vessels, viral infections, and autoimmune reactions.

Cervical Spondylosis :

Patients having slight degeneration of the cervical spine and presence of osteophytes also have a tendency to develop Vertigo.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo(BPPV):

(BPPV) is the thought to be caused by a disturbance in the otolith particles. Otolith particles are the crystals of calcium carbonate presnt in the inner ear fluid that pull on sensory hair cells during movement and so stimulate the vestibular nerve to send positional information to the brain. In people with BPPV, endolymph fluid continues to move even after normal head movement has stopped.

BPPV vertigo can also be caused by

  • A head injury
  • Reduced blood flow in a certain area of the brain
  • An episode of labyrinthitis
  • Ear surgery
  • Prolonged bed rest.

Central vertigo:

Central vertigo occurs by following causes -

  • When there is disturbance to the part of the brain (brainstem and cerebellum) that deals with interaction between the senses of vision and balance and,
  • Sensory messages to and from the thalamus.
  • Migraine headache
  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA)
  • Multiple sclerosis: The inability to move the eyes to the midline toward the nose.
  • Acoustic neuroma: Vertigo causing one sided ringing in the ear and hearing loss.

Symptoms of Vertigo:

Vertigo is normally caused by a change in the position of the head. The following symptoms may be experienced by the people, who are suffering from Vertigo

  • Spinning
  • Vomiting
  • Feeling nauseated
  • Unbalanced
  • Pulled to one direction
  • Ringing in the ears or hearing loss
  • Abnormal or jerking eye movements (nystagmus)
  • Sweating
  • Headache

Treatment for vertigo:

Treatment for vertigo depends upon the type and severity of the problem. Avoiding consumption of substances that can affect circulation, including caffeine, tobacco, or alcohol, drinking plenty of fluids.

Consumption of lavender and vitamin-D rich food.

Physiotherapy exercises include head and body movements done while sitting on bed (It is better to take guidance of physiotherapists for better and fast relief.)

Medications or treatment can be taken only after doctor’s consultation. Homeopathic treatment is fast and the relief will be long lasting. In most of the cases homeopathic medicines cured the disease without surgeries and side effects when conventional medical system suggested surgery.

Common remedies for Vertigo :

1. CONIUM MACULATUM - Conium is an excellent remedy for the treatment of vertigo with difficult gait, trembling, sudden loss of strength while walking. People complain about vertigo when lying down and turning over in bed. Slight noise or conversation of others or even shaking the head slighlty produces vertigo.

2.  COCCULUS INDICUS - Vertigo accompanied by nausea during travelling can be very effectively treated with this Homeopathic medicine. Cocculus gives very good results when the Vertigo is accompanied by nausea.

3. BELLADONNA - Severe throbbing of the head associated with vertigo. Patient feels that he is falling to left side or backwards. It is also effective in patients with Cervical Spondylosis.

4. CALCAREA FLUORICA - Best remedy for treatment of Vertigo due to Cervical Spondylosis where bony tissue is involved.

Why is my nose sneezing? Can I clean my nose with my finger? Is it a good habit? Am I a good person?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Why is my nose sneezing? Can I clean my nose with my finger? Is it a good habit? Am I a good person?
It's due to allergens. Sneezing is a allergic reaction if it continues for days it's due to rhinitis or sinusitis. Which can transform into copd or bronchial asthma. If you treat thoroughly by homoeopathy you will surely b cure. You can contact me. Dnt clean your nose finger or pricking nose it's very harmful and not a good healthy habit.

do you have pain on cheek bones on pressing it? hot fomentation is really helpful in sinus besides drink fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose. Moisturize your sinus cavities. Drape a towel over your head as you breathe in the vapor from a bowl of medium-hot water. Keep the vapor directed toward your face. Or take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain. Apply warm compresses to your face. Place warm, damp towels around your nose, cheeks and eyes to ease facial pain. Rinse out your nasal passages. Use a specially designed squeeze bottle (sinus rinse, others), saline canister or neti pot to rinse your nasal passages. This home remedy, called nasal lavage, can help clear your sinuses. If you make your own rinse, use water that's contaminant-free distilled, sterile, previously boiled and cooled, or filtered using a filter with an absolute pore size of 1 micron or smaller to make up the irrigation solution. Also be sure to rinse the irrigation device after each use with contaminant-free water, and leave open to air-dry. Sleep with your head elevated. This will help your sinuses drain, reducing congestion. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

In this case either the wax may not have been completely removed or else there may be some other problem related to the middle ear. You may need to get an audiometry test done in case the hearing in the ear is affected and the wax has already been removed.

Causes and Treatment of Tinnitus

Multi Speciality, Pune
Causes and Treatment of Tinnitus

Tinnitus is when you think that there is noise when there really is no sound. It is very common and is not very serious either. It affects about 1/5th of the population. It is worth note that tinnitus is not a condition. Instead, it is a symptom of having a condition. These conditions range from hearing loss, an ear injury or even a circulatory system disorder. Even though tinnitus does worsen with age however, it can also improve with treatment. If you know the cause of tinnitus, it does help treat it. Here is everything you need to know about tinnitus.

Symptoms of Tinnitus:
As mentioned earlier, tinnitus is a ringing, hissing, clicking or buzzing sound which only you can hear and no one else.

Causes of Tinnitus:
There are many common causes of tinnitus including:

  1. Age-related hearing loss: Tinnitus is commonly caused due to hearing loss.
  2. Meniere's disease: Meniere's disease is a type of inner ear disorder. It is when there are abnormalities in the fluid pressure of your inner ear.
  3. Medications: Many medications have a side effect of tinnitus as well including certain antibiotics, antidepressants, cancer medications and even aspirin.
  4. Loud noise exposure: Exposure to loud noise once in a while will not cause tinnitus. However, constant exposure to loud noise might cause tinnitus.
  5. Changes in the shape of your ear bone: Otosclerosis is an abnormal bone growth which results in the bones in your middle ear stiffening.
  6. Acoustic neuroma: There is a nerve, which goes from the brain straight to the inner ear. When this nerve develops a tumor, it is known as acoustic neuroma which is a common cause of tinnitus.

Treatment of Tinnitus:
Tinnitus can be only be stopped if the underlying condition is treated. However, there are certain electronic devices, which help suppress the noise including:

  1. Hearing aids: Hearing aids are already helpful for people who have hearing loss; however they can also help reduce tinnitus.
  2. Masking device: Wearing a masking device which continuously emits a low-level noise helps stop the buzzing, clicking, hissing or ringing sound which comes with tinnitus. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

I'm having acid like feeling early in the morning with a feel of acid at my throat. What should I do?
This is due to lack of protective layer of mouth which is mucus and saliva, the reason is lack of hydration which leads to concentrate acid, hence this leads to acidity, to prevent it you should keep yourself hydrated in this dry weather, take good amount of semi solids like shakes lemon juices, sugarcane juice, and lassie curds any of milk products like cold coffee, hot coffee, this will definitely benefit you.

Hello Doctor, I have a habit of snoring while sleeping. It starts from the throat and is loud. How can I prevent this?

MBBS, Diploma in Otorhinolaryngology (DLO)
ENT Specialist, Bangalore
It has to be taken seriously if you have disturbed sleep & choking spells awakening you in the night & additionally having daytime drowsiness, affecting the quality of your work. Losing weight can help if above mentioned complications are absent. Best go to the nearest ENT for proper evidence based assessment & treatment.

Hi I m 41 yrs old have a habit of snoring. I drink and smoke occasionally. Do I need any kind of operation. Please tell me more about this operation and cost.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Snoring occurs due to resistance to the airway that may be due to local factors like enlarged tonsil, adenoids, fatty neck, bulky tongue. Now a days many modalities are available to find out the underlying cause and treatment of snoring like laser, coblation etc. So consult an ent specialist for this. Do steam inhalation and use nasivion nasal drops 2-2-2-2 for 2 weeks. U will feel better. Let me know if u r interested.

If it is becoming severe then please go to a doctor. Till then have lots of water and fluids. Do warm water gargling with a little salt in it. Take some steam inhalation (2-3 times a day) which will give relief to the congestion. You can take Homeopathy if you have a tendency to catch cold throughout the year (allergic condition ). You can contact me for a detailed consultation.
