How to cure vertigo

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

Vertigo is the feeling of motion when there is no motion, such as you spinning or your environment spinning. Spinning yourself round and round, then suddenly stopping, can produce temporary vertigo. But when it happens in the normal course of living, it signals a problem with the vestibular system of the inner ear -- the body's balance system that tells you which way is down and senses the position of your head. About half of all dizziness complaints are vertigo. It typically goes away on its own in one to six weeks, but drugs are available if it is severe.

This is the only post i've seen that reports accurately how long vertigo can last. I have chronic vertigo, diagnosed with Menieres Disease 25 plus years ago. A Cholesatoma growth in L ear which lead to surgery and reconstruction. Thank you.
