According to 'SCIENCE LINKS IN JAPAN' website entitled 'INVOLVEMENT OF STRESS IN VERTIGO' the answer is yes it can be involved in the development of vertigo.I have suffersd from bouts of Benign positional vertigo for about 3 years and it is nearly always brought on whe i am stressed at work which in turn leads to insomnia,tiredness and then vertigo.My chiropracter has also suggested that muscular tension around my neck may affect the cervical vertebrae which in turnaffects the blood vessels also bringing on a bout of vertigo.Untreated the bouts may last up to 6 weeks but with medication in my case PROCHLORPERAZINE MALEATE(they make me drowsy),it clears up in 1 to 2 weeks.
