Right now, since you’re reading this, we can only assume that your perception of the world around you is in balance. Though, if there are times when you just need to close your eyes because opening them means the world around you will spin, that’s never a good thing. That means you are suffering from a condition called Vertigo.
Now, there are many things that can cause you to feel like the room or other area you’re in are spinning. They may be a temporary response to a fall or a blow to the head, but it may be because of something more severe.
Vertigo and Meniere’s Disease
Out of all of those conditions that cause Vertigo, Meniere’s Disease, which only affects one ear, is one that also causes nausea, low-frequency hearing loss, inner ear pressure, and Tinnitus (ringing in the ear). It can happen to any person at any age, but those people most-often affected are people in their 40’s and 50’s. It should also be noted that Vertigo is not a necessary symptom.
Here are the symptoms that might be signs that you suffer from Meniere’s Disease
Signs of Meniere’s Disease
- Unusual or severe headaches
- Chest Pain
- Double vision
- Loss of vision
- Loss of consciousness
- Falling or Difficulty walking
- Leg or arm weakness
- Numbness or tingling
Taking Back Control from Vertigo
Though, whether you suffer from Meniere’s Disease or another condition that causes Vertigo, there is something you can do to take back control of your life. Too many people believe they just need to learn to live with such conditions, but many times those conditions are the results of the brain’s inability to communicate with the body.
For that reason, it is important to allow an upper cervical chiropractor to examine your upper neck vertebrae. The brainstem is the main way by which the brain does communicate with the body, and a misalignment of the upper cervical spine of as little as 1/4th of a millimeter can hinder that communication system.
