Positional vertigo is the common type, whereas central vertigo is very rare. Our inner ear has an important role in maintaining the balance in our body and a problem in this structure causes dizziness and vertigo. The common causes for positional vertigo include:
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
This condition causes sudden vertigo lasting for few seconds or minutes. This is due to displacement of ‘otolith’ a small crystal in the center of the middle ear that controls pressure changes during body movements.
This condition lasts for about 20 minutes to few hours and individuals between the ages of 30-50 are commonly affected. This is due to an imbalance in fluid inside and outside the membranous sac that lies in the inner ear.
This is caused by a viral infection in the inner ear and inflammation. Although, this can settle by its own with sometime, the symptoms are highly uncomfortable.
When your head gets hit hard suddenly, it may affect the inner ear as well and cause long-lasting dizziness.
