Vertigo: vertigo means rotatory dizziness. Vertigo is a symptom where a person feels as if they or the objects around them are moving when they are not. Often it feels like a spinning or swaying movement. This may be associated with nausea, vomiting, sweating, or difficulties walking. It is typically worse when the head is moved.
Vertigo is classified into either peripheral or central depending on the location of the dysfunction of the vestibular pathways of the inner ear or the brainstem respectively.
Vertigo can also be classified into objective, subjective, and pseudo vertigo. Objective vertigo describes when the person has the sensation that stationary objects in the environment are moving. Subjective vertigo refers to when the person feels as if he or she is moving. The third type is known as pseudovertigo, an intensive sensation of rotation inside the person’s head.
