Vertigo is a feeling that the object around you are moving when they are not. Besides the fact that this is not a condition but just a symptom, it is a very unpleasant feeling because feels like a spinning or swaying movement.
Reasons for vertigo can be different, but in most cases, it is caused by the inner ear. Problems like BPPV, vestibular neuritis, Meniere’s disease are also connected with this. Vertigo can be caused by neck or head injury, medications that cause ear damage, and migraine headaches.
Vertigo can be easily recognized. The most common symptoms include swaying, spinning, tilting, unbalanced, and pulled to one direction feeling. Sometimes it can be followed by vomiting, nausea, and headaches.
Fortunately, in 2012, Doctor Foster at the University of Colorado Hospital developed a solution for vertigo. Her video has attracted more than 2.6 people.
“Tip your head up to look at the ceiling.”
Then you should put your head upside down like you’re going to do a somersault.
While you are in this position, I want you to turn to face your left elbow, Foster said
You should wait for any dizziness to stop and then raise your head to back level. Now, you should wait again for the dizziness to end and then sit back quickly. This unique half somersault maneuver has been a great hit with nearly 2 million views on YouTube.
Foster jokes and says that she doesn’t think that she has gotten up to the level of a cat video yet.
Doctor Foster, Associate Professor and Director of the Balance Lab at the Colorado University, is extremely respected among people who have problems with vertigo.
