COVID-19 is tricky. Experts are still learning the ins and outs of this virus, which was first detected in December 2019 in Wuhan, China.

In fact, a recent review published in the Annals of Neurology revealed that of hospitalized coronavirus patients, about half have experienced symptoms affecting the nervous system, including dizziness.

Dizziness can be used to describe a wide range of symptoms ranging from vertigo, where there is generally a sense of movement of the world surrounding you, to lightheadedness, which typically describes feeling faint.

Dizziness can also describe feelings of unsteadiness and balance disorders. “The probable cause for each of these symptoms depends upon the nature of the complaint and can be equally wide ranging, from medication side effects and dehydration to more serious heart arrhythmias or stroke,” he says.

One thing to consider is whether or not you are prone to dizziness or vertigo already.

If so, Sheri Dewan, M.S., M.D., a neurosurgeon at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital, says there is no need to be overly concerned. Though, “if symptoms have dramatically changed in caliber—meaning frequency, length, occurring at different times of the day, trying normal treatments without resolve—then you should contact a physician, for imaging may be needed,” she says.

According to Lenny Cohen, M.D., a Chicago-based neurologist and founder of Chicago Neurological Services, one of the first indicators of dizziness is experiencing a loss of balance.

To onlookers, he says, a dizzy spell might present as drunk. If this is you, it is important to sit or lie down to mitigate the risk of falling and call for help if symptoms persist or are accompanied by any cardiac or neurologic dysfunction, notes Dr. Towfigh.

“When lying down, you’ll also want keep your eyes closed until the feeling of dizziness and/or vertigo passes, and then arise and move slowly as to avoid inner ear disturbances in the canals,” says Dr. Dewan. “Any fast, quick movements can cause the inner ear system to become reactivated thereby causing recurrence of dizziness or vertigo.”

The Shocking New Way You Can Get the Coronavirus

  The Shocking New Way You Can Get the Coronavirus You already knew COVID-19 can enter your body through your nose and mouth. But a new study says your eyes are the latest coronavirus entry point.

Dr. Cohen also adds that some IV fluids, specific medications, and vestibular therapy (exercise-based program to regain balance control) may also be used in an effort to rein in dizziness.

Prior to blindly getting tested for COVID-19, Dr. Cohen recommends discussing symptoms with your primary physician. Dee Banks, M.D., an infectious disease physician with Northeast Ohio Infectious Disease Associates in Youngstown, Ohio says this: “The virus is a parasite, it has to live on something. You stop the transmission by putting a gap between two things that it can’t jump to.”

Which is why doing the basics is still key, she says, and that includes wearing a mask, social distancing ,and washing your hands. She adds, “this is a new virus, but there is no reason to think that the old principles and practices of infectious diseases won’t continue to work.”
