In brief: True spinning

Vertigo is the feeling that the room is spinning around or that the person has a subjective feeling that he or she is moving.
Although the symptom can be central (brain). It is usually inner ear injury in origin. Remember, vertigo is a symptom, not a disease. Therefore, you need to see an otologist (ear doctor) for a specific diagnosis and treatment. A neurologist may also need to be seen.
