I am 68 years old and have been dizzy since my 20's.

Customer Question

Hi. I am 68 years old and have been dizzy since my 20's. I can't lay down, bend over too far, move my head too qickly, or turn too quickly or I get dizzy. I want to fly from CA to DE to see my daughter, but my other daughter says it may not be good for me. Is she right, and is there anyway to stave off any bad affects from flying? Thanks!
