Dizziness or vertigo is the impairment of our spatial orientation. Patients experiencing this feel like the world is moving around. Mostly, they also tend to have nausea. This, is the result of the nerve transmission from our balance organ inner ear to the center in the brain.
In most cases, nothing is detected in the brain or ears. Physicians cannot find anything but one should check external factors like temporomandibular joint that affects inner ear functions.
1 – What is Vertigo?
Vertigo means losing spatial orientation. Mostly, it is triggered via a sudden movement or when you wake up in the morning. You feel like the world is spinning and the ground is shifting. Nausea and ringing in the ear may accompany.
The reason for this is the malfunctioning of inner ear. Mostly, it is positional; begins with a head movement and recedes in a few days to zero. And rarely, it lasts longer than that. Also, it repeats itself periodically.
2 – The Reason
The reason is the malfunctioning of our balance. The problems in inner ear which perceives the balance and in the nerve path to brain, causes vertigo.
Brain tumors and encephalitis, or otitis interna are rarely the cause. Mostly, the inner ear cannot function and the reason cannot be detected. Gokmen Approach attributes this to interference fields, especially temporomandibular joint.
3 – Dizziness and Nausea
Nausea is almost constant in the case of dizziness, vertigo. When the inner ear cannot function properly, abnormal stimulations reach the brain as information.
As a result of the fact that nausea and balance centers are connected in the brain, vomiting reflex is indirectly triggered and we suffer from both dizziness and nausea.
4 – The Reasons of Vertigo
First and foremost, rare and nerve-damaging reasons like otitis, brain tumors etc. must be eliminated. In a patient that is diagnosed with vertigo by ENT and neurology specialists, no apparent problems are detected. So, the patient is told that this might happen again and again throughout their life.
However, Gokmen Approach detects the interference fields causing the malfunctioning of inner ear, located in temporomandibular joint and teeth and solves them.
5 – Chronic Vertigo
Usually, vertigo happens periodically. But if you suffer from it constantly:
- The reason might be something serious like tumors and infections.
- Peripheral benign vertigo may sometimes become chronic.
- You may have Meniere’s.
In all cases, if the reason is detected, you may be treated.
6 – Vertigo in Children
Children do not experience attacks like adults experiencing vertigo. Because the reason in the adults is the temporomandibular joint. However, children do not have this problem. There are two types of vertigo in children.
- During puberty, as a result of wisdom teeth getting activated.
- In young child, as a symptom of migraine. Migraine with vertigo is observed in children at the ages of 2-3.
7 – Vertigo During Pregnancy
In patients suffering vertigo, attacks might come during the pregnancy as well. And since these women cannot use drugs, it is even more painful for them. But, at the same time, since all joins will be preparing for the birth, temporomandibular joint will also get relaxed and attacks decrease at this time.
If the patient is experiencing vertigo during pregnancy, neural therapy helps the patient and controls attacks easily. Also, it does not harm the baby.
8 – What is Good for Vertigo?
Everything turns upside down while suffering from vertigo. Patient feels nausea and cannot know what to do. He or she keeps thinking about what they should do to stop the pain. In this phase, the only thing to do is avoiding sudden movements until the attack ends. Although it is suggested to lower down salt intake and eating, these are not that effective.
Gokmen Approach says: Best thing you can do is to go through attack period with the help of neural therapy, and then get help for temporomandibular joint.
9 – Vertigo Treatment
Although there are drugs to be used for vertigo, best approach is the one focusing on the reasons. Gokmen Approach says:
- The patient must be relieved with the help of neural therapy during attack phase.
- As a protective treatment, the reasons must be detected.
- If the reason is clenching the teeth, temporomandibular joint problems or wisdom teeth, then a prosthetic gnathologist should be included to the treatment and night plaque must be used.
