Vertigo in disorders of the central-nervous system

A number of disorders of the central-nervous system (CNS) can be responsible for non-directional vertigo. One speaks of central (vestibular) vertigo.

A concussion or a brain tumor can impair your balance and trigger very different forms of vertigo. In multiple sclerosis, nerve fibers become damaged by inflammatory processes; the most common accompanying symptoms can include an uncertain gait and general coordination problems. Bacteria and viruses, e.g. a herpes or syphilis virus can start an inflammation of the brain as well, where vertigo and lightheadedness can be important symptoms. Further cerebral and neuronal diseases with accompanying vertigo are Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer-dementia. In rare cases, vertigo could indicate a stroke or brain tumor.
