Home > Health Library > Mild, Moderate, and Severe Vertigo
Vertigo is a feeling that you or your surroundings are moving when
there is no actual movement. The motion commonly is described as a feeling of
spinning or whirling, but it also can include sensations of falling or tilting.
Vertigo can cause nausea and vomiting. It may be hard to walk or stand,
and you may lose your balance and fall.
