Why Vertigo Attacks Appear

You often faint or lose your balance? Perhaps, you got vertigo. Although not lethal, vertigo can be a symptom of serious diseases such as high blood pressure, tumors, and stroke. In fact, it could trigger a fatal accident when the attack came suddenly.

Vertigo occurs when a person feels himself or the surrounding environment is moving or spinning. In fact, often accompanied by severe nausea and vomiting. Dr M Kurniawan, SPS, Asri Hospital neurologist, says that the vertigo commonly afflict the elderly. "The incidence of vertigo will continue to increase in the elderly. Noted, the incidence of vertigo at the age of 40 years was 40 percent," he said during the inauguration of the Hospital Clinic of Integrated Vertigo Asri.

In old age, vertigo often occurs due to disturbances in the blood vessels to the brain, ear abnormalities in internal organs, and neurological disorders. Although common in the elderly, does not mean that young people may not experience it. "Typically, vertigo occurs in younger people because of trauma or had been hit," he added.

Vertigo is also likely to strike women than men. "According to the 1956 study, the incidence rate in women 48 percent, while in men 37 percent," said Dr Jenny Bashiruddin, PhD, and Asri ENT specialist RS Sub Division Head of ENT Department of Neurology Medical Faculty UI. There are two types of vertigo, the vertigo that comes from the peripheral or inner ear or brain and central parts. However, the majority occur in the peripheral, the vertigo debris. 

Vertigo debris arising from rock crystal deposits (debris) which are formed of calcium carbonate in one of the canals in balance tool (utricle). Naturally, the debris formed from the gelatinous substances in the equipment balance. However, because the specific gravity exceeds the fluid in the utricle (endolymph), debris can migrate and settle on one of the canals around the equipment balance. 
Then, what happens vertigo? Balance human instrument is dynamic so it is easily aroused by the movement of the head. If we rotate the head, the fluid endolymph stimulates the tool will also move the balance to adapt. "If there is sediment and debris, the endolymph fluid will experience a greater thrust and balance tool with the power to stimulate greater stimulation. So that people who experience vertigo would feel like a spin," said Dr. Entjep Hadjar, Sp ENT-TOS.

Solutions Without Surgery
First, a solution to deal with it is the operating expenditure debris. But apparently, many complications occur because the utricle is the hardest bone in the human body.In the process, discovered a way more practical non-surgical patients by chance a French nationals who want to go to the doctor in the UK. 

The patient experienced vertigo incredible so he decided to go to England for treatment by using the ferry even though he could not seat. He was forced to sit down with his head on the ship's engine.Arriving at the port of London, all of a sudden vertigo which he felt had been lost. Intrigued, he told the doctor. Of the story, doctors analyze and draw conclusions that the ship's engine vibrations received by the patient is able to solve the tool keseimbangnya debris.  

From this background, the doctor develops a treatment method called Hallpike Manouver consisting of two ways to destroy and remove debris precipitated by usingvibrator, then the patient will be asked to perform certain head positions to bring back into the utricle of broken stone, called repositioning Canalith Therapy (CRT). 

"This method is able to cure 87 percent of patients in the two meetings. Thereafter, patients are encouraged to exercise balance, and sleep with high pillows. If sportsis done routinely, vertigo will not recur, "he said. Because the debris vertigo is only one kind of vertigo, the doctor's diagnosis is necessary to know the type of vertigo that occurs. Not only that, the doctor's diagnosis is also important to find out more about the disease is going to remember only a symptom of vertigo. 
No wonder if, in the treatment of vertigo should be integrated through ENT, neurological, and internal medicine. Not just in one area of ​​treatment. Unfortunately, not all hospitals provide integrated services so that patients are often confused with a disease that never healed. 

Therefore, if you have symptoms of vertigo, be a smart patient by asking for an integrated examination of the overall service that can be more easily overcome the disease, treatment costs would not beswell.

Stop Smoking Can be Easy If It's Got The Stroke

The study showed that brain damage from stroke can remove the dependence on the nature of cigarettes. According to research conducted by Prof. Rosa Suner University of Girona in Spain, not all smokers who had a stroke have such an effect. This effect appears only when a stroke occurs in the insular cortex, the part of the brain that regulates emotions. 

This is evidenced when Prof Suner observed 110 patients in the Josep Trueta Hospital with a history of stroke as a current smoker. Together with his team, Prof Suner observe the patient from being treated up to 1 year after discharge from hospital. By the time the patient leaves the hospital, the researchers reported that there were 76 patients who decide to quit smoking. But at the end of the study or about 1 year later, only 44 to successfully defend his cigarette-free status. 

Prof Suner found differences in patterns of stroke in patients who successfully quit smoking, compared with a failure. According to him, the opportunity to successfully quit smoking 2 times greater if the stroke suffered in the insular cortex. In addition to the location of stroke, the initial motivation of the patient also determine the success of smoking cessation. Patients who had planned to quit smoking since have not had a stroke had a 2 times greater chance of succeeding than those who have recently had a plan after a stroke. 

"We conclude, biological and psychological factors can affect a person's smoking status after a stroke," said Prof. Suner in a report published recently in the journal Stroke, was quoted as saying by AP. The results of this study certainly do not advise smokers to have a stroke just prior to boost the success of the intention to quit smoking. If you still have the option to quit smoking now, what's the first stroke will have to wait?

When Too Much Caffeine

Consuming beverages that contain caffeine, it can generate energy. Even some people can not move, if not drinking a cup of coffee in the morning. But in fact, drink too much caffeine can be bad for your health. ? Ari study found that caffeine can increase the energy to move, but if too high an intake can bring feelings and negative effects on health, "said Erin Palinski, a nutritionist from New Jersey, cited in Prevention.Actually, when you consume too much caffeine, your body will 'tell'. That is, through some of the symptoms, such as the following.

1. Weakness in the afternoon 
If you can not move without consuming coffee or other caffeinated beverages, you may be addicted. When eating them in the morning, it will increase energy. But in the afternoon, the body immediately felt very weak.

2. Orange-colored urine 
The urine is dark yellow or orange is a sign that the body is dehydrated. ? Opi actually are diuretics that can cause kehidrasi, because the trigger you spend a lot of urine, so the body's dehydrated, "said Amy Gross, a registered dietitian from New York Presbyterian Hospital. 
Caffeine is usually not lead to dehydration, unless you eat more than 500 milligrams per day. Therefore, limit your consumption of coffee, a maximum of two drinks per day.

3. Feeling restless
Hands sweating, heart palpitations accompanied by feelings of anxiety is an indication that you have an overdose of caffeine. "Caffeine can worsen stress and depression because of sedative substances interfere with the brain chemical called adenosine," said Palinski. 
Caffeine can also act as a stimulant that triggers the adrenal gland to release more stress hormones like adrenaline. This hormone can increase heart rate and makes you more anxious.

4. Heartburn 
Acid reflux occurs when the muscles at the end of the esophagus, known as the lower esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid and food back up. This causes a burning sensation under the breast or known as heartburn. If this happens to you, caffeine could be the culprit. 
"Caffeine relaxes the esophageal sphincter, allowing stomach acid up into the throat," said Gross. Try to cut out caffeine altogether to see if it soothes your throat.
