Your immune system reacts to a variety of foreign objects it comes into contact with, and allergies are when your body encounters irritants in the air or food, whether through touch, breathing, or ingesting. Allergens are substances triggering any common symptoms:

• Itchy skin, mouth, or eyes
• Tongue, throat, or face swelling
• Coughs
• Nausea

• Sneezing
• Breakout of rashes or hives
• Scrathy Throat
• Vomiting

Thankfully, allergy exams can pinpoint allergens. The earlier your diagnosis, the better you can avoid dangerous allergic reactions. Dr. Becker recommends testing even if your symptoms are mild so you’re empowered to live the most comfortable life possible.

What causes vertigo?

Vertigo is typically due to one of many possible inner ear disorders:

  • Gravity-sensitive calcium carbonate crystals dislodge (BPPV)
  • Meniere’s disease (fluid buildup and pressure changes)
  • Vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis (infections inflaming nerves)
  • Injuries to your head or neck
  • Stroke or other brain conditions like tumors
  • Migraines
  • Prescriptions with ear-damaging side effects

The most common kind of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Often caused by a blunt force to your head that knocks motion and balance-detecting particles into your inner ear canals, BPPV is essentially like a malfunctioning gyroscope. You’re most at risk if you’re a male over 50.

What are symptoms of BPPV?

Lasting for up to a minute per episode, BPPV usually presents many recurring symptoms:

  • Spinning inside your head
  • Feeling dizzy
  • Loss of balance
  • Vomiting or nausea
How is BPPV diagnosed?

Dr. Becker first tries detecting benign paroxysmal positional vertigo through a series of physical examination tests. She asks you to move your head or eyes in various patterns since that can trigger the onset of symptoms. If you can’t control your eyes or they often involuntarily twitch laterally, those are strong signs of BPPV. She may also order diagnostics like MRIs and irregular eye movement tests using a camera or electrodes if the simple physical exams are insufficient.

What are the different types of vertigo?

There are several types of vertigo, each with different underlying causes and characteristics. Some common types of vertigo include:

  1. Peripheral Vertigo: This type of vertigo is typically caused by issues in the inner ear, such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meniere's disease, or vestibular neuritis. It often leads to a spinning sensation triggered by changes in head position.
  2. Central Vertigo: Central vertigo originates in the central nervous system, usually the brainstem or cerebellum. Conditions like migraines or multiple sclerosis can cause central vertigo, which may be accompanied by more complex symptoms.
  3. Cervicogenic Vertigo: This type of vertigo is linked to issues in the cervical spine (neck). Neck movements can trigger dizziness and imbalance in people with cervicogenic vertigo.
  4. Psychogenic Vertigo: This type of vertigo has psychological or emotional origins. It may occur in response to stress, anxiety, or other mental health factors.
  5. Postural Vertigo: Postural vertigo is triggered by changes in body position. It may be related to issues with blood pressure or the vestibular system.
  6. Phobic Vertigo: Phobic vertigo is associated with specific situations or environments, often related to a fear of heights or certain visual stimuli.
  7. Rotational Vertigo: This type of vertigo involves a sensation of spinning or rotation, often triggered by movements.

It's important to note that the accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of vertigo require a thorough evaluation by a medical professional. If you're experiencing vertigo or related symptoms come into our clinic today - call for an appointment with Dr. Nancy Becker or one of our specialists.
