How is it diagnosed and treated?

The doctor may order a computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head, electronystagmography (measurement of eye movements), blood tests and an electroencephalogram (EEG) to measure the electrical activity of the brain. The doctor may also go through the medical history to find out if diabetes, heart disease, or any other disorder is causing vertigo.

Treatment is provided for vertigo after its cause is determined. The common treatments prescribed for vertigo are:

  • Anti-anxiety drugs
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Exercises to stabilise the gait (manner of walking)
  • Habituation exercises
  • Training for sensory organisation
  • Static and dynamic balance exercises to help balance better
  • Canalith repositioning treatment (CRT) – This treatment is provided for the most common type of vertigo (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)
  • Aerobic conditioning – A process where continuous rhythmic movements help the lung and heart muscles to pump blood efficiently, making sure that more oxygen is supplied to the muscles and organs.
