Fatigue and Vestibular Disorders – Are They Related?

People with vestibular disorders commonly report fatigue as one of their symptoms. In some disorders affecting the sensory systems (such as Meniere’s, BPPV, and vestibular neuritis), the senses send incorrect or confusing information to the brain.

Other disorders, such as vestibular migraine and PPPD, affect the central nervous system. In those instances, the senses send good information, but the brain is not processing it correctly. In both cases, the brain is forced to do more work to sift through the information it’s getting from the senses to filter out the noise. People with vestibular disorders have to concentrate harder and use more energy just to figure out where they are in space, leaving them with less energy to perform daily activities.
