Random Severe Dizzy Spells
 
Hey everyone,

I've got a problem that I've been ignoring for a while, but I reall am starting to get concerned. I have been having these random dizzy spells and they're bad. I'll just be sitting down, not moving any different or anything and I just get this random dizzy feeling. I mean, I feel almost like I'm going to black out. There is no spinning, just extreme dizziness and strange feeling in my head.

Anyone else ever had this? Should I be concerned?

Thanks
-Vers

Sounds like vertigo. Go to a doctor and they can give you a medication to take when it gets bad.

Thanks for the response,

The spells don't last very long at all...maybe a couple minutes at the most, then my head feels kinda tingly. Is that like what the vertigo is? Just short spells?

Thanks,

Oh, I forgot to mention...vertigo is when you feel like you're spinning right? Because I don't feel like I'm spinning or anything...just really dizzy..it's hard to explain, just an off-balance, light headed feeling I guess. Like I really feel like I'm going to pass out.

Thanks again for the response, I think I will go talk to the doctor about it.

I had a dizzy spell last week. after it I checked my pulse and found it irregular and rapid. I went to a hospital and a ekg detected that I was in atrial fibrillation. which puts you at rist for stroke! so i'm on medication and my heart did convert back to a normal rhythm. but you should always call your doctor with near fainting episodes, it could be many things.
