Vertigo

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we tell you about a disease that may sometimes be confused with other illnesses but like anything it's important to get diagnosed correctly in order to treat.

In Chesterfield, Dr. Christopher Marshall is treating vertigo.  

Usually benign and caused by an inner ear problem but can be a sign of a more serious problem.  

If dizziness is associated with standing up quickly, it may be being caused by a temporary drop in blood pressure.

Vertigo should always be evaluated by a physician. Go to the emergency room if it causes serious symptoms.
