Causes of vertigo include semicircular canal weakness, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Meniere's disease, labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis, ear pathologies, acoustic neuroma, stroke, and head and neck trauma.

Vertigo is diagnosed based on history and physical examination. Besides asking questions about your symptoms, your doctor may recommend a few investigations to confirm the diagnosis. Tests to diagnose vertigo include:

  • Fukuda-Unterberger's test
    The patient is asked to march for 30 seconds with closed eyes. If he tends to lean or rotate to one side, it indicates issues with the inner ear labyrinth, which may give rise to vertigo.
  • Romberg's test
    The patient is asked to stand with feet together and arms to the sides with closed eyes. If he experienced instability, it indicates problems with the central nervous system.
  • Head impulse test
    The patient's head is gently moved to one side by the healthcare provider while he is asked to focus on a stationary object. The doctor carefully observes the working of the inner ear balance system to control eye movements while the head moves.
  • Vestibular test battery
    Several different tests are performed to identify inner ear issues.
