Clean it up?
I wrote an article on migraine-associated vertigo and was hoping to help on this page. I think the entire page should be thrown away. I wouldn't even touch it. --Julcal (talk) 15:08, 12 April 2009 (UTC)julcal
Cleanup this little bit, huh?
The part about "famous people" w/ Vertigo is as follows: Famous people with vertigo: Alexi Kovalev, hockey player, Lebron James, Basketball Player, Seth Woods, Motivational Speaker, George Clinton, Music Artist, Richard Luger, U.S. Senator. Little messed up, couldn't figure out why Basketball Player was there. Then I realized what it meant. Point is, it may be a little confusing at first. --On2see 20:33, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
- Maybe try adding brackets: Lebron James (Basketball Player). I don't know what the standard convention is but if you look at List of famous people with breast cancer it follows the "Lebron James, Basketball Player" format. --Skigamemaker 03:31, 17 January 2006 (UTC)
Merge "famous people" section to Balance disorder
This was proposed in the edit: 18:47, 11 February 2006 Fitch (Talk | contribs) m (this is just a symptom, I don't think we'd say "list of famous people who have a chronic cough" on the cough page) Any discussion?Lisamh 04:17, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
- The section is completely unnecessary.
"Some people experience a vertigo sensation while looking at such images" That is stupid. The image is blured so that there is perceved motion. Why not have a blank image and say that people experience a white area of the web page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs)
- Have you ever experienced vertigo from looking at such an image? Or from a camera pan on video images? It really isn't the same as having a blank image and saying some people experience a white space. Maybe there is a better way to demonstrate vertigo though... ? However, if you can't/don't experience it, any representation or demonstration will seem 'stupid'. --Renice 14:44, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
- Please remove that image, what if people get dizzy looking at it unknowningly and sue Wikipedia for medical treatment? Think about it.
- I agree although I don't think people will sue. Personally I came to this page because I have vertigo and I want to learn more about it. That image makes me feel very nauseous, It seems inconsiderate to have a page on an illness, and include a picture that exacerbates that illness.
- Is the picture which induces vertigo really necessary? If someone is suffering from vertigo and seeking information from wikipedia, we do not need to cause them another episode by having them look at a vertigo-inducing picture. I have removed the picture.Joe 20:58, 20 October 2007 (UTC)
Separate vertigo from dizziness article?
This article states "Vertigo should not be confused with dizziness. Dizziness is an unpleasant feeling of light-headedness, giddiness or fuzziness often accompanied by nausea." However, the Dizziness article makes no such distinction between the two. This is confusing, so I've added a mergeto-multiple template to the Dizziness page so that the two can be separated and properly linked to eliminate redundancy and confusion. (I can't do this myself, but I'm not sure if it's because I'm too dizzy, or because I'm having vertigo...?)--Renice 14:38, 12 March 2007 (UTC) ==]]'''
There is no info on the treatment of vertigo. Perhaps someone who knows could add this. Thanks. --220.127.116.11 16:01, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
- The treatment for it is a very simple procedure, it consist of seeing your doctor and just taking the prescribed tablets. Vertigo can last within a person for up to 3 months and then is treated with some people vertigo can stay with them for life.
There's no support for the comment......any thoughts?
- 4-aug-2007 I've now reverted it on the grounds that it appears to be vandalism.
According to chiropractors?!
What is this, the dark ages? Gee, while we're at it, what do osteopaths say? What about homeopaths? Reflexologists? Catholic priests? Sushi chefs? All these professions have in common that they are not based in medicine, and have no grounds to claim anything about a medical condition. --18.104.22.168 05:58, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
I use this for control of vertigo, with good results ...
please check with your physician to see if these OTC items are safe for you. goldenseal , alfalfa , potassium gluconate,... these seem to releve all syptoms for a day. I am not sure of why these work but, it is really nice to have mobility. stop using to see if the symptoms have gone. could be a few days to a few weeks, you have to be the responsible judge. best of success.

Consumption of alcohol
Reference should be made to Alternobaric Vertigo in which the vertigo is caused by changes in the barimetric pressure. This term is mentioned in Dorland's Medical Dictionary, tho not in some others.

Invitation to edit
It is proposed that Vertigo be part of the trial of a new template; see the green strip at the top of Pain where it has been in place for a couple of months. The purpose of this project is to encourage readers to edit, while equipping them with the basic tools. If you perceive a problem with this, or have any suggestions for improvement, please discuss at the project talk page --Anthonyhcole (talk) 09:57, 10 January 2011 (UTC).
There needs to be a mention on this page about the (incorrect) colloquial usage of the word "vertigo" to refer to the irrational desire to jump off of tall buildings when nearing the edge. See http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=535083 , especially comment #34. It's linked to acrophobia but not exclusively. I can't find a scientific reference about it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 04:57, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
Clause makes no sense.
" ... objective − subjects, are moving around the patient;... "
The comma and the use of the word "subjects" are confusing. Can't really guess what this is trying to say. Is it something like:
" ... objective − parts or all of the surroundings are moving around the patient;... "
Dehydration as a cause?
I am no medic, so I do not know if there is any truth in this, but dehydration is VERY frequently cited in online articles as a cause of temporary vertigo symptoms. Can anyone with more expertise confirm if there is any truth in this notion? If so, it would be a very useful addition to the article, as dehydration is easy to treat at home! Again speaking as a layman, this would appear to chime with the incidence of vertigo with hangovers, as dehydration is a factor there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 09:05, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
- Completely agree, and if that's not possible then change the picture entirely. Very disruptive. Proxyma (talk) 20:30, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, when I spin around a lot and then stop spinning, I think I encounter Vertigo for somewhere around or in the range of 15-60 seconds. I want to know if this spinning sensation is Vertigo, because I get it after I stop spinning. Help please? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:44, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
