Vertigo without findings
Dizziness is a symptom that affects a large proportion of the population at least once in a lifetime. The dizziness can only be a short-term phenomenon. But it can also represent a permanent disease value and severely restrict affected people.
Balance is controlled by our balance organ, but systems throughout the body have an influence on the sense of balance. Because of this complex interplay, it often happens that someone suffers from dizziness, but no findings can be found.
Why is there vertigo without a result?
Dizziness is an extremely complex symptom that can have many different causes. Often times, dizziness is not caused by a specific illness. Rather, the cause lies in a complex interaction between the brain, the nerve fibers and the organ of equilibrium.
In addition, dizziness is often influenced by the cardiovascular system. This can also be dependent on the hormone levels in the blood and in the body as well as on the electrolyte balance.
Due to the complex composition of equilibrium and the vertigo-free well-being, dizziness often occurs without a specific finding. It is not uncommon for a psychological stressful situation or stress to play a major role in the development of dizziness. There are also probably many causes of the vertigo that have not yet been researched or discovered. Since it is difficult to examine affected persons for unknown diseases, no diagnosis is possible in this case. With this type of vertigo, no findings can be found in the examinations.

Is it always psychological causes?
Psychological causes often play a role in the development of dizziness. Often the psychological causes such as stress are not the only cause of dizziness. For example, problems with the hormone and electrolyte balance can occur, and nerve fibers can also be damaged.
Occasionally these imbalances in the body are so small that they cannot be found in diagnostics, but the actual cause in these cases is physical in nature.
The psyche must be given great importance, especially in the acute phase of dizziness. Whether the psyche is the trigger or whether psychological stress is the result of the dizziness varies greatly from person to person and from disease to disease.

The accompanying symptoms
Typical accompanying symptoms of dizziness are headache and general malaise. The dizziness can also cause nausea and vomiting. In particular, if the cause of the dizziness lies in the hormone and electrolyte balance or in the cardiovascular system, dizziness becomes more noticeable during exercise. This triggers reduced resilience and performance. Increased tiredness and difficulty concentrating can also be accompanying symptoms of dizziness.
Since the organ of equilibrium is close to the hearing organ, dizziness can also lead to hearing loss. Occasionally dizziness is caused by changes in blood pressure or electrolyte balance, especially in the brain. This is often difficult to measure, so that one speaks of dizziness without any findings. However, this not only negatively affects the sense of balance, other brain functions are also disturbed, so that various failures can occur. For example, visual field defects or motor disorders such as a temporary loss of strength can occur.

What does the treatment look like?
The treatment of vertigo is usually based on the cause of the vertigo attacks. Therefore, it is often difficult to work out a clear treatment plan for dizziness without a result. The first treatment concepts are therefore often based on different attempts.
For example, you can try to reduce stress and psychological stress. As a result, the body offers less target for dizziness. You should also make sure that you get enough and regular sleep. On the one hand, this reduces stress, but it also means that the body can better regulate all of its functions. As a result, the hormone and electrolyte balance are not so quickly imbalanced and the circulatory system also benefits from a sufficiently long sleep.
Drinking enough water is also important to prevent further attacks of dizziness. This is particularly important in the area of dizziness caused by cardiovascular disease. But it is also generally good for the body if you drink enough fluids. Further attempts at therapy can consist of homeopathic remedies or drugs that are also aimed at strengthening the body's functions in general.

Homeopathy as a treatment option
Since dizziness is a very diverse clinical picture, there is a particularly large spectrum of homeopathic remedies that are used against dizziness. In particular, the calming plants from homeopathy are popular with dizziness, as stress and psychological tension play a major role in the development and duration of the symptoms.
In the case of special accompanying symptoms, other means are also used. If, in addition to dizziness, you notice a ringing in your ears or a headache, Gelsemium sempervirens can improve the symptoms. Argentum nitricum and Aconitum napellus are often taken in the case of severe stress that causes dizziness.
It is particularly difficult to estimate the duration of the vertigo without any findings. Because no precise findings are known, the cause of the vertigo cannot be determined, which is why a statement about the prognosis can only be made very imprecisely.
Dizziness whose cause is known tends to last less than dizziness of unknown cause. This is because the types of vertigo with a known cause can be treated in a much more targeted manner. But even with dizziness without a result, the symptoms subside in many of those affected after a few days to weeks. Occasionally they reappear after a while. Often, however, it is also a single event.
The course of the disease
Just like the duration and prognosis of the disease, it is difficult to estimate the course of the disease in the event of dizziness without any findings, as the cause of the symptoms is not known. Without the possibility of causal therapy, it can be assumed that the symptoms will tend to last longer.
However, most of the time they do not deteriorate over time. Rather, the dizziness is reduced and at the same time the body can get used to the adjustment of the sense of balance.
