Peripheral Vertigo causes
Peripheral Vertigo

Causes could include:

  • Labyrinthitis is a disorder of the inner ear in which a nerve that detects head movement becomes inflamed. It causes dizziness, nausea, vertigo, and potentially permanent loss of hearing.
  • Benign positional vertigo (BPV) is a sudden sensation of spinning triggered by changing the position of your head. It's caused by a disturbance of the balance mechanism of the inner ear and may be an inherited condition.
  • Meniere's disease is a disorder of the inner ear that causes vertigo, hearing problems, and a ringing sound. It's thought to be caused by changes in the fluid of the inner ear, and usually only affects one ear.
