Vertigo is the severe balance symptom where the room feels like it’s spinning, moving up and down like a rocking boat, or moving sideways in some direction. This symptom is different and more specific than similar symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, or faintness (which each have many possible causes). True vertigo has various causes ranging from alcohol intoxication (temporary vertigo) to balance disorders such as Benign Positional Vertigo (BPV) or Meniere’s disease with chronic recurring vertigo. There are various other causes of vertigo.
