In medical terms, vertigo is a specific type of dizziness, a sense that you, or your environment, is spinning or moving, even though there is no movement.
It isn’t a condition itself, however, it is considered a symptom of a variety of health conditions.
It can be defined based upon whether the cause is central or peripheral. Central causes of vertigo arise in the spinal cord or brain while peripheral vertigo is due to a problem within the inner ear.
Other conditions that can affect the inner ear and cause this kind of dizziness include motion sickness, Ménière’s disease and toxicity of the ear caused by medicines.
Many children attempt to create a sense of vertigo by spinning around for a time. This type of induced dizziness lasts for a few moments and then disappears.
