I occasionally suffer from this, it's really not very nice...
When the labyrinth
within the inner ear
or dysfunctional, you are no longer able to correctly judge your movement
s or estimate your position
. This leads to over estimating, or under estimating your movements, resulting in the illusion
that the room around you is constantly spinning
This usually occurs more frequently (but is not limited) to people who have hearing
deficiencies, and is triggered by an imbalance
in the middle ear due to bacteria
, motion sickness
and I've also been known to vomit
It can last from anything up to a couple of days to a few weeks.
The sensation of vertigo can not be remedied, you just have to sit it out. However there are drugs on the market to help alleviate the vomiting.
