Researchers from the United States have found out after experiments that the feeling of dizziness can be a symptom of a dangerous process of mental destruction.
Doctors believe that chronic dizziness in a person may indicate his mental disorder.
The results of the work of specialists who have linked recurrent episodes of dizziness with mental disorders have been published in scientific journals. During the experiments in 15 volunteers with a similar disorder, researchers noticed symptoms of mental disorders.
“With dizziness, mental disorders are recorded in more than 15% of patients. They are quite difficult to diagnose, since the connection between chronic dizziness and mental disorders is multifaceted and dynamic, ”the authors of the work said on this matter.
Doctors talk about the presence of chronic dizziness if signs such as fainting and a feeling of loss of stability, a feeling of falling, appear for several months. Scientists have found that some of the people suffering from dizziness had problems with normal coordination of movements. In one third of patients with such problems, increased anxiety was observed (in particular, its symptoms worsened when it was necessary to visit public places).
In general, according to representatives of science, chronic dizziness can be associated with physical disorders, as well as diseases of the vestibular and cardiovascular systems of the body. People who complain of dizziness may suffer from heart failure.
But also the cause of dizziness can be stress, against which the release of adrenaline, low pressure, damage to the inner ear, and brain diseases can sharply increase. Long-term use of certain medications (antibiotics, blood pressure lowering drugs, antidepressants, diuretics) can also provoke such conditions, experts admit.
