Vertigo is usually described by patients as a feeling of the “room spinning around them”, a feeling of “waviness”, sometimes “light headedness”, “nausea”, or a feeling of “imbalance”. There are many different individualized descriptions of symptoms.

Common hallmark signs of vertigo are:

  • Symptoms are often brought on by the same movement (i.e. rolling in bed, turning the head, bending over)
  • Symptoms are often brought on by the same activity (i.e. reading, driving, getting out of bed, picking up objects from the floor)
  • Symptoms can last anywhere from 30 secs – 24 hrs
  • Symptoms can usually be made to improve after time or after changing positions
  • Patients have increased falls or loss of balance
