Vertigo is a state of rotation, rocking, or the world spinning, experienced even when someone is perfectly still. Vertigo is caused by problems in the brain or inner ear, including sudden head movements, inflammation within the inner ear due to a viral or bacterial inner ear infection, Meniere's disease, tumors, decreased blood flow to the base of the brain, multiple sclerosis, head trauma and neck injury, migraine headaches or complications from diabetes. Vertigo can be temporary or long term. Persistent vertigo has been linked to mental health issues. A psychiatric condition may also cause the dizziness, or the vertigo may affect the person's ability to function in daily life, potentially leading to depression.
