Vertigo can be assessed in a clinical setting with the help of present and past medical history, drug or family history.
A thorough physical examination also helps greatly to assess vertigo.
This can be followed by certain investigations that help to get a diagnosis of the exact cause of vertigo. Investigations include:
- Blood tests
- Electroencephalogram (EEG)
- CT Scan of the head
- Lumbar puncture
- MRI scan of head and MRA scan of blood vessels of the brain
