April 1, 2013 - What Kind Of Dizzy Are You?

What Kind Of Dizzy Are You?...People often say they are dizzy but it is a word that for the sake of medicine can be broken down into 3 general categories.

Dizzy = lightheaded, as one might feel shortly before they faint. This can sometimes be a sign of low blood pressure or anemia.

Dizzy = having the sense that you are moving or swaying but your surroundings are stable. This can sometimes be related to medication use or severe anxiety.

Dizzy = when the room is spinning around you or your surroundings seem 'wobbly.' This can be secondary to positional vertigo, certain types of migraines, or even a stroke.

Describing your symptoms accurately to your doctor can help to get a diagnosis more quickly if any of these happen to you.
