Dizziness: Causes, and How to deal with it


Good balance is vital for everything, from getting out of bed in the morning to the myriad things we do each day.

But as we get older, problems with dizziness and problems with our sense of balance become more common than normal



Two out of five people over 40 experience dizziness, and by the age of 65, it is one of the most common reasons to visit the doctor.

It even often stops us doing everyday things for fear of falling.






The term "dizziness" means different things to different people  some use it to describe feeling lightheaded or off balance, while others use it to describe a feeling that their surroundings are spinning.


While dizzy spells can be uncomfortable, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that occasional dizziness is very common in adults



Dizziness can be described in many ways, such as feeling lightheaded, unsteady, giddy, or feeling a floating sensation.

Vertigo is a specific type of dizziness experienced as an illusion of movement of one’s self or the environment. Some experience dizziness in the form of motion sickness, a nauseating feeling brought on by the motion of riding in an airplane, a roller coaster, or a boat.

Dizziness, vertigo, and motion sickness all relate to the sense of balance and equilibrium. 







Medical treatment for dizziness depends on the underlying cause and should be evaluated by a medical professional. 

Most causes of dizziness are harmless, and the problem goes away on its own.

Sometimes dizziness will be the only symptom of serious disease, the course of which may be life-threatening or be easily treatable
