Vertigo is caused by an inner ear defect. When vertigo is triggered, the vagus nerve becomes affected. This can cause some food poisoning-like symptoms such as diarrhea and nausea.

Food poisoning doesn’t cause vertigo, persay. Vertigo is the illusion of moving around in the room, when you’re really standing still. Food poisoning causes dizziness and nausea, both of which can come from a lack of air or a lack of protein and carbs in the body because, surprise, you’ve been vomiting a lot. Constant vomiting is also a sign of food poisoning in most cases.

However, it differs from other illnesses because constant vomiting from food poisoning isn’t serious unless it persists after two or three days. Usually the other symptoms of having any kind of food poisoning have also died down after two to three days; if not, you should see a doctor as soon as physically possible. If that can’t happen, go to the emergency room.
