How do other illnesses affect vertigo and dizziness?

The frequency and severity of your vertigo and dizziness can be caused or affected by illness. Any illness that affects your inner ears, hearing, and balance can trigger episodes of vertigo or dizziness. Illness that requires long periods of bed rest can bring about inner ear disorders such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, labyrinthitis, and Meniere's disease. Disorders and diseases that affect the brain, brain stem, or nerves that affect your balance can lead to vertigo and dizziness. Talk to your doctor about any illness you may have and its possible effects on your vertigo and dizziness.
