The evaluation of vertigo consists primarily of a medical history and physical exam.
The history is comprised of four basic areas.
The doctor may perform tests such as a CT scan if a brain injury is suspected to be the cause of vertigo.
Blood tests to check blood sugar levels and the use of an electrocardiogram (ECG) to look at heart rhythm may also be helpful.
