A spinning room, whether you’re house is caught up in a twister or not, is never a good thing. That spinning sensation could be due to various things, and being caught up in a twister could be one of those things. But, chances are it’s not because of that. It could be because of a fall or a blow to the head, but it could be due to something more serious.
That vertigo could be temporary, and we hope it is, but if it’s not, it could be the result of Meniere’s Disease. You’ll be able to tell, or least make a pretty good guess, because you will also experience Nausea, inner ear pressure, low-frequency hearing loss, and Tinnitus (ringing sound).
Here are some facts about Meniere’s Disease you should know:
Meniere’s Disease Facts:
- It can happen to anyone at any age
- Usually, it only effects people in their 40’s and 50’s
- It only affects one ear
- Vertigo is not necessarily a symptom
Because Vertigo is not necessarily a symptom, it’s important that an upper cervical chiropractor examine the upper neck vertebrae of those who suffer from any of those symptoms. They have the specialized tools and can run specific tests to rule out various conditions.
Though, other conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis, other systemic conditions, a heart disease, or a blood vessel disease can also result in bouts of dizziness. The best thing you can do to determine what condition you suffer from is to get into an upper cervical chiropractor, so they can examine your upper neck vertebrae.
Living Beyond Your Dizziness
When we are in minor accidents, such as falling or our vehicles being tapped by the vehicle behind us, we tend not to think much of it. The truth is that it only takes a collision of five MPH to cause the muscles and ligaments in a person’s neck to overextend.
As a result, if the top two bones in the neck, also called the upper cervical spine, are knocked out of alignment by ¼ of a millimeter, they can place enough pressure on the brainstem to hinder the brain’s ability to communicate with the body. That can lead to all sorts of health problems, including Meniere’s Disease, Vertigo, Multiple Sclerosis, and more.
