Vertigo: Flying as an attendant requires clear thinking and heavy responsibilities , so vertigo, beyond being a risk for falling, especially on aircraft should not be undertaken. See a healthcare provider for diagnosis, as vertigo can be a symptom of multiple serious disorders.

Cause?: Vertigo is a symptom, you need to find the cause and make sure it has been solved
