VERTIGO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT OR HEAD TRAUMA

Know What It Is So You Can Talk to your Doctor

Vertigo--once you have it, you never forget it.

Vertigo can hit you because of a multitude of reasons. A car accident is one way someone can develop vertigo. A head injury is another way to bring on vertigo. But what is vertigo?

Vertigo is a sensation that everything around you is spinning or moving. The following symptoms are possible:

Loss of balance

Nausea

Vomiting

Light-headedness

Problems walking properly

Problems standing still properly

Blurred vision

Earache
A bout of vertigo can last from a few minutes to several days, and sometimes much longer. A diagnosis of vertigo will require careful interpretation of the answers to the following questions:

A detailed description of symptoms

How regularly symptoms occur

The duration of symptoms each time they occur

Dix-Hallpike's maneuver (This maneuver triggers vertigo and nystagmus (rapid rhythmic repetitious involuntary eye movements) symptoms and is effective for diagnosing BPPV (benign paroxysmal position vertigo))
Treatment options depend on several factors, including the cause of the vertigo, severity, and the patient's age and general state of health. It can range from doing nothing and waiting it out to having to under surgery depending on the cause of the vertigo. Physical therapy has proven helpful as well. With a well trained physical therapist (physiotherapist), a person can learn useful techniques and exercises which help improve balance.

To prevent bouts of vertigo, as well as reducing their severity, the experts recommend the following:

Sleep with your head slightly higher than the rest of your body. Slightly prop up your head and shoulders with a couple of extra pillows.

If you have to pick something up from the floor or a surface far below your head, try to avoid bending down - the aim being to prevent your head from being lower or much lower than your shoulders. If you have good legs, try bending your legs to lower yourself rather than bending over.

When reaching up for something, try not to extend your neck.

If your neck is extended, or when you are lying down flat, more your head slowly.

If you feel an episode of vertigo coming on sit down immediately. Avoid triggers that can make symptoms worse, such as bright lights, reading, sudden movements or watching TV.

Stop smoking - people who suffer from episodes of vertigo usually experience fewer episodes and less severe symptoms if they give up smoking.

If your vertigo is due to motion sickness, such as a rocking boat, and you feel symptoms coming on, fix your eyes on an unmoving object in the distance.
If you have experienced vertigo, you know how bad it can be. When I first experienced it, I thought I was having a heart attack and had to call paramedics to my house. I encourage you to treat with a doctor or physical therapist if you are experiencing symptoms of vertigo.

If your vertigo is a result of a car accident or head injury, it is important that it is well documented. Often it can be misdiagnosed as dizziness or lightheadedness. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms.
