Potential Causes of Dizziness
Since 1990, Dr. Frank Brettschneider has maintained a private otolaryngology practice in Port Huron, Michigan. There, Dr. Frank Brettschneider has assessed and treated numerous patients who present with dizziness.

The experience of dizziness has a variety of medical and traumatic causes. A patient's description of his or her dizziness episodes, including each episode's circumstances as well as its duration and accompanying symptoms, can help a doctor to determine the underlying processes. Many patients experience dizziness as a result of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), a condition that results when a small calcium particle inside the ear shifts out of position. A brief in-office therapy can usually rectify the problem.

Patients may also feel dizzy as a result of infection in the inner ear. Generally viral, it typically resolves on its own over the course of days or weeks. Meniere's disease, by contrast, may last for much longer and may also present with auditory symptoms or pressure in the ear. There also exist a number of less benign and far less common causes of dizziness, stroke or tumors being two of the most severe.
