Ask a Neurologist. Get Answers to Your Neurology Questions.
Hello, I'm Dr Manos M.D., board certified ObGyn. The one question I ask patients when they say "dizzy" is does the room spin or do you feel you're spinning. If the answer is yes, either way, then the patient is dizzy or more precisely having vertigo. Some people say they're "dizzy" and it turns out they are lightheaded or about to faint. Lightheaded symptom may be from a heart or neurological problem. You sound like it's vertigo that's the problem and that means middle ear is acting up where the balance apparatus is located. Frequently, it is some transient viral issue and there is medication to help you through it.
Dr Manos again. I haven't heard back from you concerning your dizziness and being very, very worried about it
