Does vertigo only happen if you’re afraid of heights and you find yourself high up?


Not true. Acrophobia is the technical name for having a fear of heights. It can happen if you are up a ladder or look out of a window in a tall building, and it can also be a debilitating disorder if you have serious acrophobia. Acrophobics may have the sensation of vertigo when they are having a stress response to being high up, but vertigo can come from many different causes.[8]
