When our systems experience things that are not normal for human survival, the body's  way of rejecting this is through symptoms.  Vertigo is a symptom of a medical problem. Usually the cause is inner ear infection. Vertigo can give the impression you are on a spinning wheel,merry go round etc. Another symptom of unbalanced state can occur when the circulatory system has a sudden drop in oxygen or blood supply to vital organs, mostly the brain. The same can occur when the amount of oxygen and clean blood supply is not adequate for the brain. This is sometimes associated with dizziness.  A person receiving bad news can somehow trigger and decrease the normal supplies of blood or oxygen and cause one to pass out, or faint.
One thing to remember is, if you should experience a light headed feeling coupled with instability, your body is trying to tell you something is deviating from the normal in your body. Should this happen, you should, if possible, be seated, try to notify someone for help. Vertigo had add, or increase the health problems, such as falling into something, and injuring yourself.

Vertigo is associated with a balance disorder. People who experience vertigo have a sensation of spinning even while the body is not moving relative to the earth or their surroundings. There is usually a correlation between vertigo and problems with the inner ear's balance mechanisms or with the brain. The problem could also lie in a complication with the nerves connecting the brain and the organ in the inner ear that helps to maintain balance. Some possible causes of vertigo include drug intoxications, strokes, migraines, multiple sclerosis, or tumors.

Vertigo is usually associated with a problem in the inner ear balance mechanisms (vestibular system), in the brain, or with the nerve connections between these two organs.

Vertigo can be a symptom of an inner ear infection or of an underlying harmless cause. The most common cause of Vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV; however, vertigo can indicate the existence of more serious problems, including drug toxicities (specifically gentamicin), strokes or tumors(though these are much less common than BPPV), and syphilis.

Vertigo can also be a symptom of multiple sclerosis(MS). People with MS can feel off balance or lightheaded.

Vertigo can also be brought on suddenly through various actions or incidents, such as skull fractures or brain trauma,
sudden changes of blood pressure, or as a symptom of motion sickness while sailing, riding amusement rides, airplanes or in a motor vehicle. Vertigo can also be caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. It is also one of the more common symptoms of superior canal dehiscence syndrome and Meniere's disease.

Vertigo-like symptoms may also appear as paraneoplastic syndromw(PNS) in the form of opsoclonus myoclonus syndrome, a multi-faceted neurological disorder associated with many forms of incipient cancer lesions or viruses.

Vertigo is typically classified into one of two categories depending on the location of the damaged vestibular pathway. These are peripheral or central vertigo. Each category has a distinct set of characteristics and associated findings.

Vertigo can also occur after long flights or boat journeys where the mind gets used to turbulence, resulting in a person's feeling as if he is moving up and down. This usually subsides after a few days.

Vertigo is usually associated with your inner ears or your equilibrium being off-balance.  Most people complain of a ringing of the ears.  Hope this helps.
