I sometimes feel giddy

I am a 45-year-old seamstress. I sometimes feel giddy with the whole room swimming around me. I have tried all sorts of treatments without any change. Kindly let me know what to do about this.

A feeling of giddiness also known as a sensation of feeling off balance is called Vertigo. Vertigo is often caused by an inner ear problem usually those thought to be caused by a build-up of fluid and changing pressure in the ear. Other causes can be due to viral infections of the inner ear.

Vertigo is often triggered by a change in the position of the head. Other symptoms that may accompany vertigo include: feeling nauseated, vomiting, abnormal or jerking eye movements (nystagmus), headache, sweating and ringing in the ears or hearing loss. Symptoms can last a few minutes to a few hours or more and may come and go.

Treatment for vertigo depends on what’s causing it. In many cases, vertigo goes away without any treatment. For prolonged cases, a visit to the doctor is very essential.
