  • Impacted Cerumen

    Removal of the ceruminal plug may be largely facilitated after soaking.[] Dizziness and vertigo have been described and may result from functional impairment of the vestibular system.[] Excess pressure largely increases the risk for perforation of the tympanic membrane and other trauma.[]

  • Meniere's Disease

    The leading theory is that they result from increased pressure of an abnormally large amount of endolymph in the inner ear and/or from the presence of potassium in an area[] Clinical history of migraine, episodic vertigo, and Ménière's disease.[] Our study shows that the CM is higher in ears with endolymphatic hydrops, evidenced by an enlarged SP:AP ratio, than ears without and the CM shows no statistical difference[]

  • Motion Sickness

    The idea, once largely ignored, is beginning to gain grudging recognition.[] In both cases, the sequelae may be vertigo, incoordination, imbalance, and unpleasant autonomic responses.[] This can result in severe vertigo, but hearing is usually spared.[]

  • Otitis Media

    Imaging demonstrated a large mass of organized tissue.[] Presenting symptoms of the latter condition may include hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, vertigo and facial palsy.[] Other manifestations are as follows: Severe otalgia Vertigo Lethargy Nausea and vomiting Mental status changes Fetid otorrhea Physical examination A high index of suspicion[]

  • Acute Otitis Media

    However, some children with a history of ventilating tubes or frequent recurrent otitis media, severe allergies, or large adenoids may still be plagued with ear problems.[] […] patient is vomiting or dehydrated Artificial tears and eye lubrication if there is facial palsy Short term vestibular sedative eg prochlorperazine if there is dizziness/vertigo[] Early inspection of the ear would show the perforation to be moderate to large; within days, significant evidence of tissue necrosis would be observed, perhaps including the[]

  • Whiplash Injury

    The trigeminal nerve provides sensation to the face and a large part of the scalp and has 3 divisions: ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular.[] Vertigo and dizziness are also reported in 25-50% of the cases.[] […] and especially the lumbar erector muscles (i.e., over-excitment of the lumbar proprioceptors) is a cause of vertigo due to whiplash injury.[]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Aural barotrauma is by far the most common as the middle ear air space is small, largely surrounded by bone and the sensitive tympanic membrane, and it usually requires active[] Symptoms of a central source may include nausea with nonpositional vertigo and imbalance.[] Further observations on posterior ampullary nerve transection for positional vertigo. Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 1978;87:300-305. ISI PUBMED 52. Hinoki M, Terayama K.[]

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

    The 3 semicircular canals in each inner ear are oriented in 3 perpendicular planes that mediate spatial orientation.[] Furman JM, Cass SP: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. N Engl J Med 1999, 341 :1590–1596. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 2.[] Only when a large clump falls into one of the semicircular canals do the stones create their mischief.”[]

  • Stroke

    Aural barotrauma is by far the most common as the middle ear air space is small and is largely surrounded by bone and the sensitive tympanic membrane.[] We present a case of a previously healthy 36-year-old man who presented with vertigo and vomiting. MRI showed posterior circulation territory infarction.[] Symptoms include: Vertigo, like the room, is spinning. Imbalance One-sided arm or leg weakness.[]
