How does dizziness occur?
Feelings of dizziness (vertigo) can occur due to diseases of the inner ear (which include labyrinthitis, Meniere’s Disease and benign positional vertigo), auditory nerve or brain. Also, dizziness can be caused by tiredness, stress, fever, low blood sugar, anaemia, head injury, heart or circulation problems, stroke and certain medications. Rare causes of dizziness include tumours, stroke, infections of the brain, migraine and epilepsy. Most often dizziness is mild and temporary and a cause cannot be found.
