Your dizziness could be classified as vertigo. And your MRI scan, if ever it
deserves, have ruled out central origin.

Most common peripheral vertigo includes Meniere disease (without tinnitus,
it rarely comes), vestibular neuronitis (commonly comes with common cold and
young patients), benign positional peripheral vertigo (also common in young
man) and other infrequent diseases.

How long does your dizziness persist? For seconds or minutes or more
prolonged period?

What situation does your dizziness aggravate? During head acceleration or
positioning still? When you are lying down, does specific position aggravate
your symptoms? Such as lying on your right or left ear or so.

Are you a heavy drinker? Were ther any intimate contact with someone with
hepatitis or other infectious disease? Your physician can solve your hepatic

Be good and don't worry if it is peripheral vertigo.
