Podcast #214: Dizziness

Author: Aaron Lessen, M.D.

Educational Pearls:

  • We can differentiate vertigo into benign problems such as vestibular problem (peripheral problem), or something more worrisome that originates in the brain (central problem).
  • Dizziness + other symptoms makes us think about origination in the CNS.  Symptoms include Dizziness, Diplopia, Dysarthria, Dysphagia, Dysmetria.
