Risk Factors for Vertigo

Posted on by Carey Daniels


As you might know, vertigo is a strong spinning sensation or equilibrium loss that can sometimes last for long periods of time and cause feelings of nausea. Most vertigo is caused by issues in the inner ear. If you have a condition that has caused vertigo, you may have lots of questions. One thing of interest may be the risk factors for vertigo. Really, anyone of any age or gender can get vertigo, but we are all more susceptible as we age. Here are some of the common risk factors for vertigo:

  • Over age 50
  • Female
  • Previous vertigo
  • Inner ear infections
  • Relatives with who have had vertigo
  • Certain medications
  • Dehydration
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Head injuries
  • Balance problems

This list is not comprehensive and just because you have one or more of these risk factors, does not mean you will get vertigo; Still, it is always good to be aware.
