Is Vertigo Dangerous?

Fox 5 Medical A-Team member and prostate cancer expert, Dr. David Samadi, explains the differences between dizziness, lightheadedness, and vertigo. The sensation of movement or dizziness when at rest can be indicative of a more severe medical condition, especially if accompanied by weakness or changes in facial sensation. If you experience these symptoms you should seek medical attention immediately to rule out stroke or other serious issues. If vertigo is felt when moving or just after moving, it is more likely the result of excess fluid in the inner ear canal. Your doctor can suggest alleviated treatments or exercises for positional vertigo.
