Hello I'm Dr Chip

Even if she hasn't had any other concussion symptoms like a severe headache, nausea, changes in vision or drowsiness, the dizziness alone is a very concerning symptom here

While she may not have a bleed in her brain the chance is there and the longer she waits, if that's the case, the more in danger she is of having a massive stroke or even dying

So please tell her for me that she needs to get to an emergency room now for an exam and an MRI of her brain

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
