Vestibular Disorders and Alcohol

Vertigo is a condition in which one experiences the sensation of spinning that results in a lack of balance and dizziness. Vertigo and dizziness can be caused by many things, one of which is alcohol. When drinking alcohol, it is absorbed into all aspects of the bloodstream. Vertigo occurs when alcohol is aborbed into the inner ear.

The obvious answer to this problem is to not drink while you have symptoms of a vestibular disorder. One might overlook this suggestion, but note that alcohol reduces the effectiveness of vestibular rehabilitation.
