Vertigo is actually a complex communication between three systems in our body, our eyes, our ears, and actually our feet. And what happens is that each of these systems takes information and it tells a story and they all tell their story to the brain. The brain then compares everybody’s story and sees how well everything matches up. If somebody’s story is off a little bit, we might have some sense of imbalance or a bit of dizziness. If somebody’s story is really off, especially the ear story, then we can have true vertigo where that sensation that we actually spin around.
