Did you ever feel your head spinning in your sleep and you thought it's a dream but you woke up and your head was still spinning? Don't panic. Vertigo is a sensation of spinning, dizziness, or a feeling of movement when you are stationary. It often feels like you or your surroundings are spinning or tilting, even though there is no actual movement.?Vertigo can be caused by problems within the inner ear, brain, or sensory nerve pathways or even due to cervical.

Here are 7 ways to cure Vertigo or atleast try:

1. Epley Maneuver

This is a series of head movements performed under the guidance of a healthcare professional to reposition particles in the inner ear that may be causing vertigo, particularly if it's due to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).?

2. Medication

Your doctor may prescribe medications to alleviate vertigo symptoms, such as anti-nausea medications (e.g., meclizine), vestibular suppressants (e.g., benzodiazepines), or medications to treat underlying conditions contributing to vertigo.?
