Audiologist Questions Vertigo

What are some signs of vertigo?

My aunt has vertigo, and her son also has vertigo, so I always wondered if this symptom or disorder, whatever it is really considered, runs in the family. If someone were to have vertigo, what are the symptoms of the disorder?

Vertigo is a form of dizziness that creates a false sense that you or your surroundings are spinning or moving. It’s an illusion. False signals in the body’s balance centers cause your body to overcompensate and create this false sense of motion. People often describe it as being suddenly scooped up by a speeding train going in circles.
