I've been told that that vertigo is dizziness that comes and goes. I've been having constant dizziness; can vertigo cause constant dizziness?

In brief: Vertigo defined

Vertigo means a hallucination of movement.
It is more than dizziness which does not confer a sense of motion. It is unlikely to be constant and hence you should look for another cause. Good luck to you and well wishes.
