What are the symptoms of dizziness?
People experiencing a dizzying sensation describe it in a number of ways, like a feeling of floating, wooziness, heavy-headedness, lightheadedness, a loss of balance, or that the room is spinning. Standing up suddenly, walking, and head movement can all trigger this feeling. You may also experience nausea, which can range in severity. These episodes can last seconds, but some can go on for days with heavy recurrences.
What are the treatments?
Treatment of dizziness depends on the cause and your symptoms. Talk with your doctor if you do experience recurrent episodes of lightheadedness or vertigo. Call 911 immediately if your symptoms are more severe than the ones listed above.
