The vestibule of your inner ear is something most of us don’t learn about during our biology classes in school. Yet, it is one of the most important parts of our human anatomy, and it helps keep us in balance. Your vestibule can be affected, just like any other part of your body, with various illnesses. These illnesses could range from something as basic as vertigo to serious viral infections. Whatever may be the case, vestibular dysfunction could lead to various symptoms including, dizziness, nausea, anxiety, fear, and a loss of balance.
First, let us discuss some of the most common conditions associated with vestibular dysfunction.
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is the most common condition associated with vestibular dysfunction. This condition makes your brain feel as if you are moving when you’re not. This is why you may feel dizziness or nausea.
The labyrinth is an inner structure of your ear which could be damaged from an inflammation caused by a bacterial infection. This may cause pain, mild loss of hearing and loss of balance. This could be cured by treating the infection.
- Meniere’s Disease
This is usually caused by a severe build-up of fluid in your inner ear due to some virus, allergy or auto-immune reaction. This could create symptoms like vertigo, tinnitus, and a feeling of heaviness in the ear.
Some of the less common vestibular dysfunctions include Perilymphatic fistula, Vestibular neuritis, Acoustic neuroma and Vestibular migraine.
