Do you feel like the room is spinning out of control every time your allergies get triggered? Do you struggle to keep your balance each time your vertigo episodes strike and fear that you will suffer from severe injuries? Are you looking for better ways to avoid triggering an episode?

Unknown to a lot of people, vertigo attacks can easily result from a number of different things. A few notable examples of which include ear infections, inner ear problems and neck bone misalignments. When you have vertigo, your body's balance system may be off-kilter. Vertigo symptoms vary from person to person but did you know that your allergies could trigger it too? In this blog, we’ll go over the likelihood of that situation and how a chiropractor can help you get lasting vertigo relief.


Vertigo Is A Symptom That Comes And Goes

Vertigo is a symptom that comes and goes. Although there are many causes of vertigo, it can be difficult to understand why you feel dizzy or off-balance when you're in the midst of an attack.If you have a history of allergies, this may be one reason for your symptoms. Vertigo is often triggered by airborne particles that are inhaled into the lungs and bloodstream (such as pollen and mold spores). Once in the body, these particles trigger histamine production, which leads to inflammation throughout the body - including parts like your inner ear, where signals from your balance system travel to areas responsible for controlling eye movements. The resulting inflammation can cause damage over time, leading up until those little hairs responsible for sending messages about motion stop working properly!


Allergies That Can Lead to Spinning Sensations

Allergies are no laughing matter. But if you've ever had to deal with allergies and vertigo, you know that they can feel like a joke—a really unfunny one.Allergies can make it hard to focus and can even affect your ability to walk straight. That's why we're going to look at how Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care can help the body cope with allergies and reduce your risk of developing vertigo in the first place! The most common allergies that can lead to vertigo attacks include:

Dander (animal hair) and molds from pets or other animals cause respiratory issues that increase mucus production, leading to sinusitis and inflammation along the inner ear canal. Unfortunately, this can trigger or contribute to worse vertigo attacks. Incidentally, there is some evidence that people with severe food allergies have higher rates of vertigo than those who don't have any food sensitivities; however, this has not been proven yet. Nevertheless, allergies don't have to ruin your life. If you’re suffering from vertigo, Upper Cervical Chiropractic care can help!allergies, vertigo relief
