Vertigo: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

Vertigo may cause a person to feel that he/she is rotating or rocking or as if the world is spinning even when he/she is perfectly still. Sound waves enter through the outer ear canal and reach the ear drum. There the sound is converted to vibrations and when these vibrations reach the vestibular nerve, it carries these signals to the brain. This mechanism together with the collection of semi-circular canals in the inner ear helps to provide real-time feedback regarding a person’s position in space. Vertigo implies a dysfunction in any part of this entire procedure.

There can be different causes of vertigo and the causes can be differentiated into peripheral or central. Central causes of vertigo have their roots in the brain and the spinal cord while the peripheral vertigo occurs due to some problem in the inner ear. However, vertigo in most cases occurs due to problems in the inner ear. Vertigo can occur if the inner ear gets inflamed due to illness or if the small hair cells within the semicircular canals get irritated. In this scenario, a person suffers from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that is caused due to fluid build-up and pressure changes in the ear. Vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis is an inner ear problem that is often related to infection.

The treatment for vertigo depends on what is causing the problem. The various methods of treatment include vestibular rehabilitation, canalith repositioning maneuvers and medications. Sometimes, surgery may be needed if vertigo is caused due to tumor or injury to the brain or neck.

How is the treatment done?

Labyrinthitis and vestibular neuronitis can be treated by vestibular rehabilitation. Vestibular rehabilitation involves carrying out some exercises that encourage a person’s brain to adapt to the ear’s abnormal messages. During this therapy, a person keeps moving despite feelings of dizziness and vertigo. This unique procedure trains a brain to avoid the confusing signals coming from inner ear and to rely on the signals coming from the other parts of the body. This method helps the brain to minimize any dizziness and helps the person to maintain balance.

BPPV is usually treated with a procedure called Epley maneuver. This is a procedure four different head movements are performed to move the fragments that cause vertigo to a position where they cannot produce any more symptoms. A person may experience vertigo during the movements. Although this procedure may provide some immediate relief, total recovery can be achieved only after 2 weeks. Brandt- Daroff exercises are recommended if the Epley maneuver does not work.

If vertigo is caused due to Meniere’s disease, a person will need to adopt a low-salt diet, take medications, treat tinnitus- ringing in the ears- with sound therapy, treat hearing loss, undergo physiotherapy to regain balance and also have to get treated for the secondary symptoms of this disease. Sometimes medications can be used to treat various forms of vertigo. Two of the most commonly used medicines are prochlorperazine and antihistamines. Betahistine is recommended for long-term treatment of Meniere’s disease.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

Vertigo refers to a sense of dizziness. This condition may develop due to a range of reasons. A person is eligible for treatment of vertigo if he/she experiences some or all of the symptoms associated with it. The symptoms are: dizziness, problems with balance, lightheadedness, a sense of motion sickness, tinnitus, feeling of fullness in the ear and nausea and vomiting. A doctor will determine whether a person is suffering from vertigo or not by means of a physical examination and checking the patient’s medical history. A person may also be advised to undergo an MRI or CT scan. Thus, a person will only be eligible for treatment after he/she has been properly diagnosed by a doctor.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

A person who does not suffer from the symptoms of vertigo are not eligible for treatment. A person affected by Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is not suited to undergo the vestibular rehabilitation. Epley manouevre requires some head exercises to be done. A person who has a serious head/neck injury is not eligible for this treatment. A person needs to consult a doctor before understanding whether he/she is eligible to take medications like antihistamine and prochlorperazine.

Are there any side effects?

The side-effects of vestibular rehabilitation therapy include dizziness, muscle fatigue, sedation, weakness, and unsteadiness and falls that may sometimes amplify the disorder. Epley manoeuvre does not have any serious side-effects. However, a small fraction of the patients who have undergone his treatment have experienced transient nausea while fewer people have experienced vomiting. Prochlorperazine has a number of side-effects like dizziness, drowsiness, sleep disorders, constipation, swelling of breasts, weight gain and missing of menstrual period for women. Antihistamine’s side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, vomiting, nausea, vision problems, confusion and problems in urination.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

There are a number of post-treatment guidelines that a person can follow to ensure that this condition does not recur. A person can reduce the risk of developing central vertigo by controlling the risk factors for stroke. A person should not drive a car or a motorbike even after he has undergone treatment. There is always a risk of a mishap. If a person has undergone treatment for peripheral vertigo, he/she should continue with vestibular rehabilitation exercises. A person should also avoid operating large machineries or climbing the stairs.

How long does it take to recover?

The Epley maneuver to treat Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo shoe positive results almost immediately after the treatment. However, a person with BPPV will take about 2 weeks to recover completely. The Brandt-Daroff exercises, which are recommended to a person who doesn’t benefit from the Epley maneuver also takes about 2 weeks to get the patient cured fully. Surgery is recommended if the symptoms of vertigo persist for years. If central vertigo is caused due to a migraine, a person will recover as soon as the migraine is dealt with. Medicines usually cure a person suffering from vertigo within 3-14 days, depending on the severity of the condition.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The cost of prochlorperazine is around Rs 646 while antihistamines are available within a price range of Rs 1800 – Rs 2000. A CT Scan can cost something around Rs 70,000 – Rs 80,000.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

It is believed that vertigo can be totally cured. Treatment of vertigo generally depends on treating the symptoms. Vertigo can be of two types: central and peripheral. Central vertigo can be cured by treating the accompanying migraine. Sometimes central vertigo is caused due to brain tumors. Surgery may be required to treat the brain tumor. This can, in most cases, permanently cure central vertigo. Meniere’s disease, which can also cause vertigo, can be treated by making some lifestyle changes and by treating some problems of the ear. Thus, as long as the inflammation inside of the ear is treated, vertigo can be permanently cured.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Gingko biloba is one of the mostly researched herbs that help to increase blood flow to the head and brain and thus can act as a natural cure for vertigo. Ginger, which helps to treat nausea, can also act to contain vertigo. Almonds and milk also help to treat vertigo. Other natural ingredients that help to contain vertigo are lemon balm, fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C, vitamin D and garlic and sesame oil.

A balancing problem often causes dizziness. When you are standing still, you will have a feeling like everything around you is moving and spinning and that is due to dizziness. Labyrinth is one of the organs present inside the ear, which is a part of the balance system. This organ will interact with the other body organs as well like eyes, bones, joints, etc. Along with these organs, the nervous system and brain can also contribute towards your trouble in balancing.

Symptoms:
There are different symptoms that a person with balancing trouble may face Some of them are as follows:

  • Unable to walk straight as everything around seems to be spinning

Vertigo - 5 Most Common Problems That Can Lead To It!

Vertigo is marked by a feeling of dizziness and disorientation. This feeling could be so bad that even standing up makes a person feel lightheaded. Vertigo can even make a person feel nauseous.

The five most common causes of vertigo are:

  1. Meniere’s disease: Meniere’s disease is a condition that affects the inner ear. It is marked by a buildup of fluid in the inner ear as a result of a viral infection, allergies or an injury to the ear. Along with dizziness, it can also cause a ringing noise in the ears, the feeling of having plugged ears and hearing loss. Vertigo caused by Meniere’s disease can last for months.
  2. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): This is one of the most common triggers of vertigo. This condition is caused by small crystals that break free and float in the inner ear canals. These canals are known as semicircular canals. Vertigo caused by BPPV is usually short-lived and relieves itself is a few minutes. Moving the head in a certain way or jerky movements can trigger vertigo in such cases. The exact cause of this condition is not clear but it has been often associated with severe head trauma.
  3. Labyrinthitis: This condition is also known as vestibular neuritis. It is marked by swelling and irritation of the two vestibular nerves in the inner ear canal. Labyrinthitis may be caused by a viral infection or an inner ear infection. In such cases, vertigo may be accompanied by hearing loss. Older adults are at the highest risk of this condition.
  4. Vitamin B12 Deficiency: A simple vitamin deficiency can also cause vertigo and dizziness. Vitamin B12 helps prevent anaemia and keeps nerves and blood cells healthy. Low levels of this vitamin can cause neurological problems that in turn cause vertigo. This is because vitamin deficiencies reduce blood pressure and blood flow to the brain. A simple blood test can help check Vitamin B1 levels and identify a deficiency. Some of the best sources of vitamin B12 are dairy products, meats and fortified cereals.
  5. Dehydration60% of the human body mass is water. Water plays a number of roles in the human body. One of the most important functions of water is the circulation of nutrients in the body and blood flow. Thus, even mild dehydration can make a person feel dizzy and nauseous. This type of vertigo may be relieved by drinking copious amounts of fluids.

Did You Know Ear Problems Can Cause Dizziness Too?

Did You Know Ear Problems Can Cause Dizziness Too?

The ear is typically associated with hearing. However, it plays a much larger role in our daily functioning. The ear also helps us maintain our balance. In fact, one of the most common causes of loss of balance or dizziness is a blocked ear canal.

Dizziness can range from a brief moment of imbalance and light-headedness to a severe spinning sensation. In severe cases, it can also result in a black-out. To maintain one’s balance, the input is needed from the eyes, inner ear and joints of the feet and legs. These impulses are processed by the brain which sends out signals to other limbs and organs on what needs to be done to maintain balance. A disturbance in any one of the three inputs can cause dizziness or a loss of balance.

Which part of the ear is responsible for dizziness?
The structure of the ear can be categorized into an external part and an internal part. The external part of the ear is responsible for receiving sounds, amplifying them and forwarding them to the inner ear. The inner ear is shaped like a snail. It has two interconnected parts. One part helps convert sounds into electrical signals that can be transported to the brain while the other helps maintain balance. This consists of three balance canals.

These canals move in a different direction depending on the movement of the head. This part of the inner ear also contains 2 small components with sensory cells covered in small calcium crystals. These compartments help sense linear movements such as rocking, bouncing or swaying movements. If the crystals covering these compartments are dislodged, the person may lose his or her balance. A tumour in the inner ear can also lead to a loss of balance.

Meniere’s syndrome
Meniere’s syndrome is a disorder related to the inner ear. This is a common cause of dizziness and vertigo. Meniere’s syndrome usually affects only one ear. This is marked by an abnormal collection of fluid in the inner ear. Blockages in the ear canal, an allergy, stress, fatigue or a trauma are some of the common reasons why this fluid may accumulate in the ear. Dizziness caused by this disease is usually noticed in the first and second stage of this condition. In such cases, dizziness may be accompanied by a loss of hearing, ringing sensation in the ears and pressure in the affected ear.

Labyrinthitis - All You Need To Know About It!

Labyrinthitis is a very common disease related to audiology in which the person suffers from an inner ear medical disorder. The two vestibular nerves present inside the inner portion of the ears send information to the brain about spatial navigation and also balance control. Now, when any of these two nerves become inflamed due to some reason, it causes Labyrinthitis.

The symptoms of this disorder are easily identifiable and the person is treated generally based on the kind of symptoms he or she is experiencing.

Symptoms: 

Even though the symptoms may disappear after a few days, a chronic Labyrinthitis will continue to affect after that as well.

  • Dizziness can be experienced throughout the day
  • Vertigo or fear of heights can affect the person.
  • Loss of balance because of the inflammation.
  • Nausea and vomiting due to dizziness.
  • Tinnitus or a ringing sensation in the ears.

These are the symptoms Labyrinthitis and sometimes if these are not treated well, then it can lead to permanent hearing loss.

Causes

  • Illnesses like bronchitis can cause Labyrinthitis.
  • Different viral infections affecting the inner ear
  • Infection or virus attack in the stomach
  • Herpes caused by Human alphaherpesvirus
  • Bacterial middle ear infections

So if you are suffering from any of these medical problems then you must visit an audiologist immediately and treat the condition in a proper manner.

Diagnosis And Treatment 

The doctor will conduct different physical examination and other tests which will help him or her to detect the real problem. Hearing tests, blood tests, a CT or MRI scan of the head and even electroencephalogram can be used to diagnose the patient. Once the real cause of the disease gets traced, the doctor will prescribe medication accordingly.

Here are some of the best treatment of this disease: 

  • Antihistamines, such as desloratadine or Clarinex will be prescribed.
  • Medications which will effectively reduce dizziness and nausea are also given to get relief from the most common symptoms.
  • Sedatives, such as diazepam if the patient is unable to sleep properly.
  • Easily available antihistamines like fexofenadine (Allegra), diphenhydramine (Benadryl), or loratadine (Claritin).

Apart from treating yourself with different medication here are some important actions you can perform to get relief from symptoms which might affect you:

  • Avoid rapid or quick changes in position and postures.
  • Sit very still and don't move during a vertigo attack.
  • Get up clamly and steadily from a lying down or seated position instead of a sudden movement.

Vertigo / Dizziness - When To Seek Medical Attention?

BPPV or Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a major cause of vertigo. This is a condition that gives a sensation of head spin all of a sudden. It also results in dizziness in brief episodes. The severity level can vary from intense to mild. BPPV is triggered with certain changes of the head position. Although BPPV is bothersome, it isn’t serious unless there is a chance of a person falling abruptly because of the head spin. There are ample treatment options available to address this problem.

Symptoms of BPPV
BPPV includes some of the following symptoms:
a. Loss of balance
b. Dizziness
c. Feeling of the surrounding spinning
d. Vomiting and nausea
e. Rhythmic movement of the eye

When to seek medical attention?
If dizziness is accompanied with one of the below-mentioned symptoms, it is time to urgently seek medical attention and get vertigo addressed for good:

  1. Hear loss
  2. Tingling or numbness
  3. Fever accompanies with severe headache
  4. Arm or leg weakness
  5. Problems with vision
  6. Difficulty in walking
  7. Becoming unconscious

Causes of BPPV:
If there is on known cause associated with BPPV, the condition is termed as idiopathic BPPV. In most of the cases, though, BPPV is associated with a severe to minor blow to the head. Other causes include an injury to the inner ear, prolonged sitting position in a fixed posture, even migraine pain is at times associated with BPPV.

What are the risk factors?
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is likely to occur in the age group of 50 and above, this being said it can happen at any age in case of any injuries. Statistically, it is found that the likelihood of BPPV is more in women than men. Head injury of any sort is by far the most likely reason of BPPV.

What are the tests and diagnosis involved?
A doctor is likely to perform a physical examination followed by a series of tests. Some typical signs that a doctor looks for include the following:
Ability to control eye movement- especially side to side movement

Symptoms of dizziness
In case it is difficult to spot the symptoms, a doctor might suggest video- nystagmography or electronystagmography. It helps to track irregular eye movement. An MRI can also be prescribed to study the cross-sectional images of the body and the head.

Treatments associated with BPPV:
BPPV mostly go away within months or weeks on its own. If however, it still persists, a doctor can suggest Canalith Repositioning- series of small movements that helps to counter BPPV. For extreme cases, a doctor might advise a surgery for blocking the portion of the inner ear that might be causing the problem. It guarantees close to a 100 percent fix to BPPV. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ENT specialist.

Homeopathy - A Holistic Approach to Healing
Hi friends,

This is Dr. Prriya Thakkar, I am a practicing homeopath at Vashi, Navi Mumbai. Friends this is my first interaction on this particular platform.

So I would like to start with something which is most commonly as to a homeopath. People come across and ask me mam, homeopathy kis cheez mein de sakte hain, kaun si problem mein de sakte hain, this is the most common question we come across. So friends, let me tell you homeopathy is a beautiful science, it can be used anywhere you like meaning in any of the disease conditions what varies is the role that it plays, say for example you have conditions like skin diseases, hair fall, respiratory problems, like cough, cold, fever, asthmatic conditions, GI disturbances, hair fall etc. these are the conditions wherein homoeopathic medicines can be used as a sole curator meaning it would be the only medicine which can be used to cure the condition. Then there are other conditions, like cancer you talk of Diabetic foot ulcer or you talk of accidents, cuts and bruises. Let me tell you about a case there was a young child boy of around 12 to 14 years of age, he just with his friends and one of his friend just pushed him and he bang into a pillar, now he injured his eye the eyelid on the outer end and he had a cut which needed I think around 1 or 2 stitches. Coincidently I was around the place and we applied local homeopathy medicines. There was no oral medications given whatsoever and he was dressed only with homeopathy medicines for a week and the cut just disappeared it were hard even to find where the injury had taken in the first place. So friends this is how homeopathic works, let me describe about one more patient this was again a boy of 10 years and he met with an accident, wherein he had a deep injury on the right lateral side of his leg at the knee joint and he had a real deep cut which had to be sutures around 17 to 20 sutures would given in that particular area. Then as the norm goes off all the painkillers, antibiotics and dressing were advised by the concerned surgeon. This patient again was a relative of mine, so what we did was we gave him some oral medication for the pain relief and healing and he was dressed only with homeopathy medicines. Within 15 days he required no painkillers no antibiotics whatsoever and the wound heal beautifully with minimal scarring. You have bruises say you have a bad fall with an injury you can create them with homoeopathy. Similarly accidental cases, cases of accident where you have fractured a particular bone you definitely need to go undergo plaster, you definitely need the initial mode of line of treatment given by orthopaedic surgeon but with that but you can do is you can give homeopathy medicines which help the fracture to heal faster, this is our homeopathy helps and plays a parallel role. Let me describe one more case, this is a patient this is was this was my first cancer patient which I handled this was a lady of 72 years old, she was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma, the stage which was diagnosed was very late and she being a diabetic which was not under control doctor advised against chemotherapy radiation she had nothing whatsoever which we could do in that particular case. So the doctor suggested let us get a stenting done of a common bile duct, so that she doesn't develop jaundice and other complications, that was the only help they could give. They did that this patient for more or less throughout for a year in the hospital on a IV fluids, after a while she developed nausea, vomiting and lot of vertigo. Now the patient being known to me when to a homeopath and to a senior homeopath practicing somewhere in Mahim I was the moderator in between, she was under him for a while but the case was not improving and she was still suffering. Finally somehow the case landed up in my hand and I gave her a few doses of homeopathic medicines, the patient really improved when in terms of nausea and vomiting which stopped her vertigo, though she was in the bed she just couldn't turn around not even move her head and that also subsided. After a while say a period of around 2 months or so again this patient now she developed Ascites, Ascites is a condition where there is a lot of fluid accumulation in the abdomen and the only solution that you have is to aspirate this particular fluid from the abdomen, which is called the peritoneal tap. She underwent 3 sittings of peritoneal tap each time that tap being down around 2 to 21/2 litres was aspirated. Again I was called in, we gave her a couple of doses of homeopathy medicines and she was posted next day for the tap again. So next day she was again posted for peritoneal tap to the at a surprise of a gastroenterologist there was hardly any fluid which was aspirated say around 3 to 400 ml, that was it and friends I am glad to say that was the last peritoneal tap which underwent till that time she died.

So a friend this is how a homeopathy works, it is really wonderful how well you use it is all that matters.

Any of your queries regarding homeopathy or any of your illness which can be treated through homeopathy, you can definitely contact me through Lybrate.
