    Can vertigo cause faint feelings

    Hi all . I am just wondering if vertigo can cause you to feel lightheaded like you are about to faint? I've had the room spinning dizziness and this isn't that. When I look up or down or to the side it makes me feel like going to pass right out. I get a head rush, start sweating..the works . I took some meclizine and it did seem to help but makes me super tired. Thanks in advance.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I have had problems with Vertigo since I was a young child. It is off and on and I can go months and months with no issues then boom. This was just a little different, more of a oh wow I am going to pass out feeling, start sweating and extreme nausea. The meclizine done really seem to help. I had never heard of vertigo causing you to feel like you might pass out. Sigh. I guess it never ends.
