Hi Ymna,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

A spinning sensation of dizziness can indeed be typical for vertigo. Not only spinning dizziness, vertigo sufferers often also feel nausea, vomiting, and blurred vision making it difficult for them to carry out their activities.

The cause of vertigo is a disturbance in the balance center, which can be located in the brain (central vertigo) or in the ear (peripheral vertigo). Because of this disorder, complaints more often arise when you experience a change in position, for example from sleeping to sitting, sitting to standing, tilting left and right, or even just to lower and raise your head.

Apart from vertigo, it is also possible that the complaints you experience are caused by other factors, such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), anemia (low blood hemoglobin), hypotension (low blood pressure), dehydration (lack of fluids), heart disease, tumors brain, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.

Given the many possible causes, you should immediately consult a doctor. If it is true that the cause is vertigo, it is also necessary to distinguish what causes the vertigo, whether central or peripheral. Therefore, direct physical examination is very important to distinguish each of these conditions so that treatment can be carried out on target. In severe cases, you may be referred to a specialist (such as a neurologist if vertigo is the cause) for further management.

If what often triggers your spinning dizziness is a change in position, then you should avoid changing positions that are too fast and sudden, try to do it slowly. When you feel dizzy, immediately hold your hand and ask for help from those around you to find a safe place. Calm yourself, don't panic while breathing slowly.

Hope it helps ya..
