Vertigo is an acute or chronic condition in which an individual may feel dizziness, issues with coordination and balance, and occasional nausea. Normally, vertigo is an imbalance of the inner ear, that may happen from an ear infection, a cold, migraine, or inflammation of the nerve of the ear. For many patients, it is hard to stand up without symptoms, and sometimes difficult experiencing these symptoms while sitting. In Chinese medicine, vertigo may be caused by emotional stress, anxiety, improper diet. Vertigo can be easily treated by laser acupuncture, acupuncture, and nutritional advice.

Signs & Symptoms

Vertigo symptoms are different from one person to the next, but tend to follow a predictable pattern for each patient. Physical symptoms include:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance 
  • Ringing of the ears
  • Headache
  • Possible hearing loss 
  • Disorientation/lightheadedness
Some patients may experience cognitive/psychological changes such as difficulty in attention, thinking, memory loss, depression and anxiety.


Each patient diagnosed with vertigo may have one or more of the following causes which includes:

  • Ear infections
  • Inflammation of the vestibular nerve (nerve in the ear that is responsible for balance)
  • Head movements that may trigger vertigo
  • Depression
  • Anxiety, emotional strain
  • Migraine
  • Poor nutrition
