Ashley contacts The Doctors to ask about the effects of her vertigo diagnosis. Ashley woke up one morning feeling dizzy and sluggish and when she went to the ER she was diagnosed with vertigo and given a travel sickness medication. Ashley says she travels on planes often and wonders what causes vertigo and if her ears will be permanently affected!
Ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Andrew Ordon breaks out a model of the human ear to explain. He shows that the inner part of the ear, the cochlea, has semi-circular canals which are there to regulate balance and equilibrium.
Dr. Ordon says if you have a problem with the canals, like with vertigo, it is usually not a serious condition; it can be associated with a cold or a viral illness that is causing the dizziness. However, if it is associated with hearing problems like ringing in the ears or a loss of hearing, it could be a sign of something more serious that needs to be checked out.
The good news, says Dr. Ordon, in Ashely’s case the chances are likely that her issue will resolve and there won’t be any remaining problems.
