Causes Of Dizziness
There are several different possible causes for vertigo, some of which are physical, while others are psychological. The most highly documented cause of vertigo is Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo, or BPPV. This disease affects the inner ear, and may be preceded by an upper respiratory infection or a sharp blow to the skull. BPPV is caused by a dislodgement of structures in the inner ear balance detectors, which will cause dizziness and loss of balance. Episodes of BPPV will last from 30-45 seconds, and can be reduced by avoiding bodily positions that induce vertigo.
