BPPV:-This condition manifests as sudden onset of vertigo when the patient goes to a particular position like turning to one side in bed. The vertigo lasts for less than a minute. It is a due to calcium carbonate crystals collecting to form larger particles which stimulate the nerve of balance. It can be easily treated by physical therapy in the form of Epley's manoeuvre.
Meniere's Diseases:-This is a condition in which episodes of vertigo occur along with hearing loss and ringing in the ears. It is due to the increased fluid pressure within the inner ear. This condition can be controlled by medicines
Ototoxocity:-This is caused by medicines like Streptomycin, amiakacin, frusemide, etc. which cause weakness of the nerves of balance. These patients can be helped by physical therapy. It is important for vertigo patients to understand the cause and how treatment will help them.
