COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. James Bush is treating patients with vertigo at Colonial Heights Medical Center.

Symptoms include dizziness, feeling off balance, and it seems like the room is spinning.

Vertigo crops up because of sinusitis, inner ear problems and viral infections can cause vertigo, as well as problems with the cerebellum.

Some simple tests can be done by your physician to check if your problem is likely to be coming from the inner ear or from the brain itself.
