Vertigo is the illusion of a spinning or rotational movement. This sensation is similar to the  feeling that follows doing rapid pirouettes, getting off a rotating chair or a merry-go-round. You can feel as if the environment is spinning around you or that the spinning movement or rotation is within your head. It is normal to experience vertigo when you get off a merry-go-round but it is not normal to experience vertigo when you look up or rotate your head and neck to look behind you or when you roll over in bed.

Vertigo maybe associated with other symptoms as dizziness, light headedness, nausea, vomiting and sweating. While vertigo may be incapacitating and result is lost productivity and quality of life it is generally treatable and rarely the sign of a life-threatening or serious disorder.
