I have vertigo but not acrophobia which are two distinctly different things.
The pictures are interesting, as are cityscape photos that look UP in the middle of a nest of highrises ... but, I have no dizziness here.
Vertigo is physical and has to do with inner ears issues normally.
Acrophobia is fear of heights and THAT might cause one to feel dizzy.
Note, they do mention a "height vertigo" which MIGHT be a subset of less common vertigo types.
"Vertigo" is often used (incorrectly) to describe a fear of heights, but it is more accurately a spinning sensation that occurs when one is not
actually spinning. It can be triggered by looking down from a high place, or by looking straight up at a high place or tall object, but this alone
does not describe vertigo. True vertigo can be triggered by almost any type of movement (e.g. standing up, sitting down, walking) or change in visual
perspective (e.g. squatting down, walking up or down stairs, looking out of the window of a moving car or train). Vertigo is qualified as height
vertigo when referring to dizziness triggered by heights.
