Vertigo is a feeling that you or your surroundings are moving when there is no actual movement. You may feel as though you are spinning, whirling, or tilting. You may have trouble walking or standing, and you may lose your balance and fall. Severe vertigo may make you vomit or feel very nauseated.
Vertigo can be caused by problems with your nerves, blood flow, or inner ear.
