Ques. 1     What is meant by Vertigo?

Ans.           The movement may be rotator or a feeling of displacement in one direction. Vertigo is always accompanied by disturbance of balance which usually causes the patient to seek support and if sudden and severe may throw him to the ground. It often causes a reflex autonomic discharge leading to cold sweating, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes diarrhoea, bradycardia or even syncope.
