If you are  encountering Vertigo bouts, no matter how  frequent they are,  whether  they  are  few  or many, they’ll surely impact your quality of your  life.

As a consequence of vertigo, patients may experience some degree of sustained incapacity, which can be tremendously scary during an acute attack. The unpleasant symptoms associated with vertigo can leave the patient confused and in fear of social embarrassment.1

Digging deeper in the mental impact of vertigo, it may result in changes in your decisions and behaviors. For instance, vertigo might badly affect your visual perception which would make it hard for you to maintain concentration. Alongside its effect on balance, it may cause feeling of anxiety or depression due to inability to perform physical activities. Someone might even decide to change his job because of the vertigo symptoms.2, 3
