How is vertigo diagnosed?

To diagnose vertigo, a doctor will usually ask you questions about your medical history and symptoms, and give you a physical exam. During the physical exam the doctor may check blood pressure and look for problems with vision or abnormal eye movements. They may also use simple hearing and balance tests and perform imaging scans, such as X-rays or an MRI to work out whether the symptoms are caused by abnormalities in the inner ear or brain.
