ABSTRACT

Vertigo and dizziness are among the most frequent presenting symptoms, not only in neurology, but also in ENT and internal medicine clinics.

Vertigo is a spinning sensation or the feeling that the surroundings are spinning.

Floating sensation, lightheadiness, forward, backward – and sideward fall sensation, walking instability, gait hesitation or unsteadiness are other type of dizziness.

Keywords: vertigo, dizziness
