Abstract

Vertigo is the second common complaint next to headache, which makes a patient seek medical care. Neurological, auricular, cardiac, mental, and other diseases may be a cause of dizziness. Since vertigo is interdisciplinary in nature, there are frequently problems of establishing its origin. Vertigo is commonly associated with vascular pathology of the head and neck, which results in the hyperdiagnosis of cerebrovascular diseases. At the same time, little attention is given to the patient's psychoemotional sphere and ENT pathology. Large-scale studies have demonstrated that vertigo most frequently results from psychogenic causes and vestibular apparatus diseases.
